Broke up created a crisis…in every circumstance because a family gets blown apart. We all know what that does to a child. We all know what that does to a woman’s identity. But, at the same time, it caused me to start to reevaluate all those things weren’t able to stay intact – all the people’s attention, all the success, the financial security. It didn’t have any value.
When Pixies broke up in 1993, I gave up the drums for the longest time. I hadn’t been doing a lot, but I ended up attending a magic convention that initially got me interested. I took classes, bought videos, and practiced relentlessly. I began performing at parties and soon realized that developing an on-stage routine is often tougher than being a musician. I focused my act on magic that incorporated as much science as it did entertainment, which was really satisfying for me.
We broke up, and my first reaction was ‘Fine – I’ve been through this too many times. I can’t change your mind. I can’t live your life for you. You’re gone in your direction. I’m going to pick up; I’m going to go in my direction. I’m not going to live in the past. I’m not going to embrace the pain. You go, I’ll go, and that will be it.’ And I felt that way for an hour and 10 minutes.
I definitely shut down sometimes. I always just go into my own little cocoon and write, and I surround myself with as much music as possible. The last girlfriend I had, when we broke up, I remember being in a room for days on days on days with my music cranked up, playing songs like Kanye’s ‘808’s & Heartbreak.’ That playlist just was long!
What does surprise me, though, is the amount of attention this band [Guns’n’Roses] has garnered 11 years after the original lineup broke up. That’s an interesting phenomenon. It was even interesting back in the day. I mean, [we were] this glorified garage band. It was a great band, but it was not the kind of band you expected to become what it has.
I don’t care what the press is about a person that I’m working with. I care about how they come to work every day. I don’t care who broke up with who or who is sleeping with who or who went out where. I don’t care what you do with your personal life. It’s when people take their personal lives into a space where it affects their performance at work, that’s when I would stop taking someone seriously.
