Fear is crippling. Fear of the future can convince us that there is no way out and nothing is ever going to get better. Fear is blinding; it can make us miss the warning signs flashing right in front of our eyes. It can also make you miss those brilliant flashes of color, when the world isn’t so gray. But, if you think about it, being afraid isn’t such a bad thing. Because fear is a reminder that you still have something to lose. Something worth holding onto.
Rock & Roll is so great, people should start dying for it. You don’t understand. The music gave you back the beat so you could dream. A whole generation running with a Fender bass…The people just have to die for the music. People are dying for everything else, so why not the music? Die for it. Isn’t it pretty? Wouldn’t you die for something pretty?Perhaps I should die. After all, all the great blues singers did die. But life is getting better now.I don’t want to die. Do I? – Lou Reed (1965-1968)

And not think too much about what happened on the last record, or the record you made 20 years ago, because those are over with. Those are done.
Seeing the same coverages, the same personnel, and for us to change the whole scenery, and bring somebody else in that’s necessarily competitive, a professional competitiveness, where guys are respecting each other’s careers, but yet are getting better. For us to come out here and a get a win, I think it helped us with those practices.
