Even though I know yoga would probably be the best thing for me in the world right now... Why don’t I go?


Is your wife making you go to Pilates? No! She’s been trying to get me to go to yoga for the last five years.


Do you have any sort of meditation practice? Is there something you do when you wake up? How do you find stillness?


I’m in the midst of trying to find that right now. I went on a retreat and came back all spiritual, and then life got busy again and it all went out the window!


I think I’m probably going to have more luck on tour, on the road, than I am at home, because as hectic as traveling can be, I have a little bit more control of life situations out there on the road. It’s the one aspect of my life I feel like I do have some control of. I can wake up in my hotel room—I’m alone and I can ease into the day and do what I need to do. It’s not like I’ve got to get up and drive the kids to school, feed the dog, get to the gym, go to practice, go pay a bill, you know what I mean?


I’m reading a book right now, by Michael Brown, called The Presence


Process, and it just talks about being present. I’m definitely grappling with it right now, and I have a desire to get there.


Quite a while back, before I knew who you were, I was researching you and saw this guy, covered in tattoos, a punk rocker, talking about animal rights, sustainability, and being a vegetarian. It makes a real impression. How long have you been a vegetarian?


26 | OriginMagazine.com


About 13 years.


It sounds like you are an activist and are outspoken for the environment and for vegetarianism.


Yes, and for animal life. I’ve never been a flag-waver, but I can lead by example. I feel that if you’re in the public eye in any way, you do have a little bit of influence on people. People who had a closed mind to it before might go, “Oh, that’s interesting! Maybe there’s more to it than I thought!”


What wakes you up in the morning, besides your kids and your dog? What’s that thing that sets your soul on fire, that gets you really excited?


Well, I look forward to a cup of coffee! Sometimes I think about it before I go to bed! I wake up to my three dogs and my wife in bed and the kids, and those are the best gifts that I have. It used to be my car outside, or my motorcycle, or this, or that, but it’s really just the real stuff.


For you personally, as an artist or a man, what is the thing that you are most excited about, most passionate about right now?
