Whether it's five people or 50,000 people, I always love to perform and feel very blessed that I'm able to do that.
Everything had to be dismantled within 24 hours starting at 11 p.m. Friday night. To compound matters, there wasn't sufficient time to drain the basin and refill it for the next day.
Today they're praising you sky high, place you on a pedestal and tomorrow they don't want to know you.
Acting is about listening, and that's something that took me awhile. You almost don't have to learn your lines, if you listen to what they're saying and move it along.
I can answer anything about any American pop culture song ever.
I never really thought we'd fitted into the cross-over drawer. But I think the real Sugar Ray fans did like us because we always had variety and because we experimented a lot.
I love to perform. I've never lost the urge. I've never once been on stage when I didn't want to be.
I'm not a fighter, but I would love to be a boxer because I love the courage and toughness. I mean, there can be nothing more terrifying than walking into an arena and looking at Mike Tyson in the ring.
All we did was to sit around, collect some ideas, wait and see what's going to happen. That was it.
You might be feeling sick or a little down, but the second you hit the stage and hear the crowd, you're ready to perform. That's what a true performer is.
I'm a huge boxing fan. I love the strategy and the combat. Mark McGrat
As a lead singer, all I want to do is be in my own head and think about how great I am. That's a lead singer's disease.
I'm really fed up with all the credibility talk. A lot of times it seems to be more important than the music. Well, I guess for a lot of people it actually is. We don't care for credibility.
I really do hope that the people will like 14:59. The critics seem to like it. We got a lot of good reviews.
You know how it is with drawers and labels in the music business. They don't want anything to be complicated. They just want it simple, as simple as possible.
Of course, we wrote the songs accordingly and performed and recorded them that way. At that time, we really thought it was right, but you know, seen in retrospect, it made the album sound forced, and not really great.
None of the original love and feel for going on stage is gone. I'm not a true singer. I'm performer, and I need to be on stage.
I'm that crazy-ass drunk uncle that nobody wants to invite to the holidays and birthdays.
Acting is something where you have to completely remove yourself. So, do I find acting easy? Absolutely no! Do I want to do more of it? Do I enjoy doing it? Do I feel appreciative to get this opportunity? Absolutely!
I'm a huge boxing fan. I love the strategy and the combat.
You know, I'm not real tall. I'm 6'0, 6'Â½, but I think people think I'm shorter than I am because I'm not the most muscular cat in the world.
We were kind of caught up in the genre trap. We didn't really have a lot of artistic freedom. They wanted us to go into a certain direction, so they could promote us easier.
He's a good wrestler, and tonight he wrestled extremely well. Who's to say he wouldn't have beaten Malachi if he'd been healthy.
The scary thing is that this band was founded in 1988, and back then it was Guns N' Roses, L.A. Guns and , like, 'What chick am I gonna be with tonight?' - it was that mentality, you know, around a keg.
When you become a commodity to a record label because you're making them millions of dollars, you can take all of your artistic integrity and throw it out the window.
With acting, there are a lot of subtleties and non-verbals involved. If someone is over there, getting eaten by a shark, there's a non-verbal way of how to act that. There's a certain nuance to acting that does not come intuitively to me. It's something I still have to learn.
You can make low-budget film as long as there is something compelling about the characters. There is a believability in the chemistry and a likeability amongst the characters.
As a performer, I want to hit the last row of the arena. I want to make big moves. I'm a spaz, naturally.
It's funny; we never had anything like credibility. Even though we all have some sort of punk-rock background, but so what? I really don't care about that. What's credibility anyway? Who has credibility?
It's been a long time coming for us.
