I gather that you're a vegetarian and that you don't really indulge in any vices. Have you ever had any vices? I just wonder because you're pretty great at writing unscrupulous characters in your songs, and it seems that some of that knowledge can only come from experience.
i've gone through a lot of challenges at various times i've been hungry, broke, in jail, addicted to drugs and alcohol, beat up, ripped off, flew through a car window at a high rate of speed, didn't have no where to go and so on. i gave that life up a pretty good spell ago. i have a meditation practice that prohibits drugs, alcohol, meat [eggs], tobacco, and you need to lead a low impact lifestyle and stuff like that.
i still have challenges, and am not a master. i just keep at it. i don't know what else to do. a lot of my poetry comes from that conflict.
What was the very first band/artist that took you over? How did that music steer you into bands like Napalm Death & Zeke etc? And what/who was your first influence in the bluegrass? I have similar tastes, so I'm curious about when these happenings occoured in your life as well.Danny Barnes responded on 05/27/2014 Next question
For someone who's not a musician, nor professional artist, nor a professional writer, but just a very intelligent person that works a somewhat dissatisfying day job, what advice can you offer on finding happiness and fulfillment (for the normal folks)?Danny Barnes responded on 05/28/2014
