You say you still love playing, but what motivates you to get out of your bed each morning and keep doing what you do?
You have to have a reason to get out of bed every day, man. You really do. Like when my Dad retired from General Motors, that was like the worst thing that ever happened to him. He was like lost. Once he got a job up at a gas station and he was back talking with people again, he had a reason to get up.
I mean, if you and me opened up a lemonade stand, we’d have the one lemonade stand so let’s open up another one down the road and this n’ that, the whole thing is we gotta get more cups, we gotta get more stuff; it’s all about keeping our business going.
I mean my kids are sittin’ around sayin’ “I’m bored!” and I just say you should never be bored. Ever. I got a million things going on every day on the Black Label shit to do list. A million things going on. I mean it’s everything. Whether we’re doing Black Label beef jerky, Black Label beer, Black Label coffee, new artwork, new merch, I’m involved with everything. And I love it. Aside from us practicing and us doing the band and the music, then we set up the tour and think what we’re gonna do with that, yada yada yada, there’s just a million things outside of even just the music.
