My interview with Rocky Votolato can be seen here.
QuoteThe great truth I really figured out is it absolutely doesn't matter what other people think of you or me. That has to be the mantra. Your ego always says, "What will they think?" Everyone in a crowd or in a room is always worried about what other people think. That's what stops honest communication and real art. I think the highest goal of art is trying to find the truth.
