At the age of 15, he was held at gunpoint. He says “I always have faith in the world. When I was 15, I got held up with a .357 Magnum, had a gun pointed to my head and put on the floor, execution-style. No matter how ugly the world gets or how stupid it shows me it is, I always have faith. The events after 9/11, the moments of tragedy when people show their colors and pull together, have renewed my faith.”
He recorded “You Know What They Do to Guys Like Us in Prison” in his underwear.
