I'm pragmatic. I like efficiency. I want to read what's in front of me and not have my hands tied.
Horses are like people - they have different personalities. They can be nice, friendly and hard-working, or awkward, difficult and lazy. If horses were people, some would be on the dole, and others would be entrepreneurs.

Yes, we record practically everything on Pro Tools.
I like England more than I did when I left. It's become a bit of a better country in the last ten years, in the attitude of it. A bit more Americanized, which is both good and bad. At least when you order a cup of coffee they don't give you a hard time.

I think everyone has some fascination with what's outside our existence. It's a constant journey to find the truth.
Many artists in Mexico fight to be the Latina Madonna. I don't want that! Never! Maybe she's the American Gloria Trevi!
