tre cool quotes

Billie and Mike are my best friends. We do everything together. We’re not the kind of band that just sits around at the hotel all day waiting for the show. We don’t go out on our own and do our own things like, ‘Hey, see you at the show.’ We’re always hanging together, doing things together, and we love playing and making music.

Songs are like a form of chaos that you can control. It’s a form of intelligence that maybe you only understand and you hope that someone else can understand. And you can be anyone you want: you can be as grandiose as you want or you can be as down in the gutter as you want. It’s just sort of whatever emotional freeway you’re on at the time.

Touring is everyone dozing off in the back while you ride shotgun and Billie drives and you share the hugest cup of coffee, listen to the same Ramones tape over and over, and zoom along the highway through the desert and the night. Every once in a while Mike jumps up startled, yelling some gibberish. Then he realizes that it was just another tour nightmare and mumbles some excuse and goes back to sleep. Touring is pulling into town at 4am and finding mattresses in the mattress factory dumpster and setting up a camp behind the Denny’s parking lot, and waking up feeling like complete shit. Touring is, of course, fucking wonderful.

Tré reads the dirty ones. I’ve read a few. It’s flattering and sort of weird at the same time. I don’t really know what to think about young girls thinking about old men like that. But the ones I have read were very well-written and as long as kids these days are still being creative and writing, then I think it’s cool.

When I think about rebellion, the truth is that I never rebelled against my parents. There was nothing to rebel against. They were working class people. My mother was a waitress, my father was a truck driver - what’s to rebel against? Parental rebellion is a very Orange County thing, rebelling against your rich parents. And that certainly wasn’t my life.
