I grew up listening to Led Zeppelin and progressive rock - that background has always given me a penchant for the more conceptual side of rock music.
I make music to push my own buttons. I've always been driven by an addiction to create sounds that are unique, not better than what other people do, just different.
The most important thing in my life is trying to achieve some sort of spiritual balance because everything flows from that. When I'm looking back on my life when I'm 70, I want to be proud of the contributions I've made to society, not just in terms of music, but socially too. That's what drives me these days.
