On auditions and having a better chance at landing the gig:
Find music that you really like and that you enjoy playing and it’ll show if you’re trying to play with those people.
On how it felt playing in A Perfect Circle:
So yeah, that was actually a pretty comfortable fit for me since I kind of knew everybody already and a lot of the crew is the same too for Puscifer and A Perfect Circle, they kind of share some of the same key people that help out and go out on the road with us so it wasn’t a fish out of water feeling at all-I felt right at home. Plus I’ve been listening to that band for 10 years or so so I was already pretty familiar with all the material. *laughs*
On his project with Jeff Friedl:
I think for now we’re just trying to focus on a group of songs and actually finish them so we have an initial thing to put out and as that goes we’ll kind of just see what happens and continue from there. I’m actually really excited about it, there’s something cool about just letting loose on your own ideas and just being like “oh I always wanted to play this song in a band…oh wait… why don’t we have our own band and we’ll just play whatever we want”. *laughs* It seemed kind of obvious.
