If you’re going to create a VIP package, by definition, you’re creating a LIP package (a less important person package). What you’re doing is creating two classes of supporter. The ones that can afford to be your supporter and the ones that can’t. I won’t do that… Who the hell do we think we are? We’re not saving the world here. We’re supported by these fans. If not for them, there wouldn’t be a show.
I don’t like to call myself an artist. I think it’s an over-used word. I’m a musician.
When you begin to look at music as a brand, you change the motivation as to why you do it. I never ever did a record with that in mind.
