His House: "I'm a pack rat. I never throw anything away!"
"Basically I just had to say, 'Screw everyone around me- from now on I'm just gonna play what I think is important to me and our music.' So I gave the big finger to all the current trends in technical wizardry, and just went off and did what I felt was best for the songs." "My guitars are my umbilical cord. They're directly wired into my head."
