My days are whatever I want them to be.
It seems like the chaos of this world is accelerating, but so is the beauty in the consciousness of more and more people.
What doesn’t kill you only makes your book longer.
What I’ve realized over the years is that I have some pretty good friends.
I inherited my father’s insatiable desire to meet all the beautiful girls in the world.
I never really thought in terms of the concept of being a rock star – being around people like that just seemed like normal day-in-the-life stuff to me. Those were just the surroundings I grew up in.
Sometimes life’s so much cooler when you just don’t know any better and all the painful lessons have not hammered your head open yet.
I like the idea of defying the convention of what it is to be in your 40s, or 50s, or 60s.
Personally, I am stuck with one foot in the past and one foot in the present.
I was a little self-centered gutter punk in the early 1980s and all I wanted to do was diss everybody.
I find it hard to meet the right woman as people assume I’m a certain type of person – which I’m not.
I think art is inherently nonviolent and it actually occupies your mind with creation rather than destruction.
We did that with people like Chris Rock, Woody Harrelson, and the environmentalist Julia Butterfly Hill.
I would have to say the person with whom I am most in love is definitely my son, Everly Bear. Although I’m his dad, I’m also his friend.
I’m probably not long-term-relationship material for now.
Well, I get excited about music.
The fact my relationship with my son is so good makes me forgiving of my father and also appreciative.
Also, we’re all actually different blood types and we have one represented by each guy in the band.
We’ve just learned how to balance ourselves a little better so that we’re happier way more of the time than not, and, you know, being happy is a radical and desirable act if you ask me.
You know I love pot, and I love beer, but I am totally sober, just because it completely stopped working for me.
As a father now, I wouldn’t do what my dad did, because it left me feeling emotionally unstable as a kid. But he didn’t do the things he did out of selfishness or malice.
I’m not a true vegan.
I don’t even know what words to use to talk about the music industry anymore. But the business has changed a lot – the methods of releasing music.
If you want to get along with somebody, let them be right, and it will last longer.
I discovered surfing, which I absolutely fell in love with. That feels good and kind of keeps your body aligned, so does the salt water.
But then when he left, I realized that it was harder to write songs and feel spiritually connected to art and music as a band. When he came back I felt it again, instantaneously.
We’ll have these people hang out with us while we’re doing our touring, and talk to them and let them speak their piece to the world.
In terms of having high hopes that the level of consciousness will get higher and higher, yeah.
When I was younger, I used to hate Germany. I hated the country, the people, the language, the culture, everything! But over the years I’ve grown to really appreciate the German people.
My father rebelled ferociously against his conservative upbringing where his father physically abused him.
Four years into the life of my son, I realize I’m so in love with him and he’s so in love with me that if I don’t find that lifelong partner out there, it’s okay.
I think I’m still figuring out how to be a little less selfish.
The road is not a problem.
I think there is always going to be inspired music and there are always going to be inspired listeners and there is always going to be an inspired method of getting it from A to B.
I have to laugh at myself.
I’ve acclimated to the music-while-exercising thing.
You know, I like to climb trees and ride bikes and play.
I think people that have fear that, ‘Oh if I have a kid I won’t be able to do this and I won’t be able to do that.’ It’s kind of the opposite. It really gives you energy. It makes people better.
I know my dad is a big Internet freak, and he’s been known to be a Wikileaker.
I didn’t really get to Led Zeppelin until I was in my 20s.
I know whatever my father did, in his own way, he still loved me.
Now I can look back and say I actually like the upbringing I had and my father was very attentive and a great educator.
I have a few friends that I think would go to bat for me no matter what. Flea is definitely one of them. Guy Oseary is one of them.
