"I am absolutely ignorant to politics. I turn my cheek to it. I used to think it was because I was just too young & it was boring as all hell, but now I think I’ve found true reasoning as to why I don’t pay attention. It’s because I’ve seen it & heard it all before. I believe this is how people feel about bands. We’ve seen & heard THE BEST. Right? The Beatles. Led Zeppelin. The Clash. Metallica. Guns N’ Roses. Nirvana. Radiohead. The “band” had its time. “Rock ‘n’ Roll” had its time. Time continues and things pass. Rock n’ Roll as we know it is dead. I play these alternative/rock radio festival shows & I have to say… I’ve felt more rock ‘n’ roll in so many other places in my life that don’t have the title, but have the vibe. Skateboarding is rock ‘n’ roll. Fashion is rock ‘n’ roll. Anxiety is rock ‘n’ roll. Tattoo culture is rock ‘n’ roll. SINGLE MOTHERS ARE FUCKING ROCK ‘N’ ROLL. All of these things demand your attention. The rock ‘n’ roll I’ve heard about was a cult. It was feared. It was respected. It wasn’t college & safe. It was knowledge & angst!!! It was what makes your skin crawl. It was the truth, whether you wanted it or not."
