My family and my dad taught me that under no circumstances do you give up or stop,” he adds. “He taught me how to work hard and he taught me that if you want something, you have to work for it. You have to give 100 percent of what you are or who you are or you’re not going to get anything out of it. I’ve seen what hard work does and what heart does. If you’re passionate about something and you have just a sliver of talent, the rest is hard work. A lot of bands don’t work as hard as we do. We’re going to keep pushing for more. We’re not going to stop until we’re satisfied… And for me, that will be never!
