“I didn’t know what the fuck the songs were gonna sound like. I didn’t know where I was going. I didn’t know how the machine worked. I didn’t know if I was playing a good enough drum part. I didn’t know, on “Silent Machine”, that reversing that drum and then digitizing and spacing out, through the computer, my vocals… I didn’t know if that was good or bad. But that’s what I needed to do. I didn’t need him telling me [that], just like I don’t need somebody telling me to get a producer. I don’t need somebody telling me I need to learn for society. I’m sorry. One day, maybe when I’m in the prime of my life, I’m Aquarius and my prime is around my 70s, maybe that is when I’ll be taking master painter classes, and I will have already directed five films and put out ten books and made 40 records and have a couple scores. Maybe that’s when I will take music lessons.”
