I’ll tell you as a disclaimer right now that I vowed to myself that in my musical career I would never get political. My reasoning is twofold. One, I don’t ever want to isolate a valuable part of my fan-base. Secondly, I never want to boost my own ego to think that I know more about right and wrong simply because I’m a musician with a microphone. To me that seems manipulative in the same way that cult leaders are manipulative. Being given a stage is a dangerous responsibility, and I try to protect myself from letting it get to my head. Why is my political perspective any better than anybody else’s? Let me assure you right now that it is not. Don’t ever let me fool you into thinking otherwise.
