I think I did every drug known to mankind, smoked crack, boozed, dropped acid, you name it.
I care less if I can't be part of your scene because I am the scene. I am everything that is.
They believed you can't mix rock, country, and rap, and that crossover is dead. I always knew it would work. And it will always work as long as you're really into it and like what you're doing.
My past is a bit checkered.
I am happy to make money. I want to make more money, make more music, eat Big Macs and drink Budweisers.
No, but we put a rider in our contract that there has to be Pabst Blue Ribbon in our dressing rooms, just because we thought it would be funny.
Europeans don't seem to have the groupie mentality.
That's what I love from metal, and that's what I love from hip-hop. That's what I love from any music that's hard, that's got an edge to it-The attitude in it.
Why does anything ever happen? Some things happen and some don't.
Rock 'n' roll is much easier if you're white.
Well, in America people know us. We've got it made there, but in Europe people don't know us. We've got to win them over and that's a challenge.
If it looks good, you'll see it. If it sounds good, you'll hear it. If it's marketed right, you'll buy it. But... if it's real, you'll feel it.
I was the little white kid who rocked the turntables.
I want as many people as possible to hear my music. I'm happy to entertain people by being a star.
I always believed it would happen and stuck to my guns.
You know, when I started I liked Big Macs and Budweiser and I still like Big Macs and Budweiser.
Well, I was into music since I was a kid, ya know, back in Detroit. I say Detroit, but it was really a little suburb outside the city called Romeo.
I'm actually a pretty decent human being, and when I'm home I'm straight as an arrow.
I didn't come from a trailer park. I grew up middle class and my dad had money and my mom made my lunch. I got a car when I was sixteen. I'm proud of that.
But honestly, it's pretty weird; there are girls who'd do absolutely everything just to get a backstage pass. I don't know what it is, but really, when you're on national TV in America the girls love you. They all want you! And I'm not complaining!
I didn't want to go out and change anything. I just wanted to make the music that was part of my background, which was rock and blues and hip-hop.
A lot of people told me that I'm committing musical suicide with my sound.
That's why I called my record Devil Without a Cause - I'm a white boy who's so sick of hearing that white kids are going to steal rap.
I could care less about what people think. I'm a Devil Without A Cause.
My shows aren't about trying to save some place, because I don't feel that's the right venue for it. That's my politics right there: Don't bring politics to my shows.
