▶ The art and the business side are very confused—they’re perceived to be the same thing, which they’re not. I really don’t worry about where we fit in the business. I think we’re somewhere in the middle—somewhere between hardcore and the cheesy, commercial, melodic stuff. And that’s somewhere I want to be—I think all the really good artists were like halfway between commercial and intellectual. (long pause & laughs) But you know, I really don’t like talkin’ about this stuff. I’d really rather sit down with you and have a beer.
