People have a right to ask questions and dig deep when you're hurting people and things around you.
The songs are about things that we were thinking and we wrote 'em down, and when you listen to 'em, whatever you think it's about... THAT'S what it's about!
Drugs are not the way to the light. They won't lead to a fairy-tale life, they lead to suffering.

I sing like a lark.
Drugs will have a huge effect on my work for the rest of my life, whether I'm using or not.
I was in a band when I was 15. We were a glam band. Then I couldn't afford to buy makeup. At the time that was the thing.
Being me is no different than being most anyone else, I guess.
My bed isn't made, I'm tired, I haven't slept well for two weeks. I haven't been laid in a month. I don't have a girlfriend. I have a warrant for my arrest.
There are lasting consequences for using drugs. I'll still be paying for my prior use.
There were a lot of drugs. We kinda just passed the time that way. For a couple of years we were all doin' anything we could get our hands on.
There's no huge, deep message in any of the songs. We recorded a few months of being human.

I don't think any drug that can cause brain damage, failing kidneys, hardening arteries, pain, and suffering should be made available.

At home I'm just a guy who has interests that extend far beyond music.
I don't do much else but stay in my hotel room.
I guess I can go anywhere I want. If only I knew where to go.
Andrew Wood's death changed things for a few weeks. I probably got even heavier into drugs after that.

My bad habits aren't my title. My strengths and my talent are my title.
Kurt and I weren't the closest of friends, but I knew him well enough to be devastated by his death. For such a quiet person, he was so excited about having a child.

Music is the doorway that has led me to drawing, photography, and writing.
We started this band as kids, and as time has gone on, we've grown and are learning to accommodate each others' differences.

I started out when I was about 12, playing drums. I started singing when I was about 15.
I don't take part in it the way I used to-the bimbos, the free beers, free drugs, all that. That's still there if you want it, but I don't really seek that out any more.

Whatever dramas are going on in my life, I always find that place inside my head where I see myself as the cleanest, tallest, strongest, wisest person that I can be.
