why does anyone even care about other people doing things that have no negative outcome? like let girls take selfies with starbucks!! let straight dudes wear weird clothes!! let gay people be as feminine or as masculine as they want!! the next time you find yourself getting annoyed at someone, ask yourself “is this disrespectful? is this harmful to me or anyone else?” if the answer is no, then let it go - you probably have bigger things to worry about anyways
they’re not just fans. you know? that’s what gotten us here. you know, that’s why we’re the band we are. the music business is in a place where you can’t rely on numbers, you can’t rely on money, or spots on a chart to be successful. like, it really is, now, about how happy it makes you. and how you feel at the end of the day when you go home, or when you go to your bed. or your bunk. like, if you don’t feel like you’re in it, and you’re happy about that, then you don’t know nothin’. you just, you can’t rely on anything but the fact that, you know, it’s music, and you got people singing it back to you. that’s what i love. you know, i don’t care if we write a record, it flops and we’re done. because we’re still not done. because we love our fans. and our fans love us. and i don’t think any of that stuff matters, the material things. what matters is going out there and playing a show and having people scream words back to you, and be just as passionate about the lyrics as you are about them. ….. their passion for our music.. makes me want to be.. better. ..like, just makes me want to just do the best i can, at everything. even if it’s not music related. you know? to people that we would never know if we didn’t play music.. that’s it.
