RICK KREWE, THE LAD BIBLE: When you do a record, you don’t do it with a bunch of people you don,t know, like, know.
You just make it up.
You know, it’s a weird situation.
You’re doing a record that’s all you can think about and then suddenly, the next day, somebody comes up to you and says, “Hey, I wanna talk to you about Fifty Shades of Gray,” and you’re like, “Uh, no, no.
No, I don’t wanna talk about it.
It’s not in the plan.
I don.t want to talk about that.
It’s weird, man.
I think it’s funny that people can be so open and say, “Oh, I can’t tell you what’s happening,” and it’s like, OK, fine.
I can tell you that I was trying to write a song that was very much like that.
It was very autobiographical.
You write about the things that you’ve done, and it really sounds like that’s a song about being an addict, and you also want to tell a story about your mother and your dad and all these things that are not very romantic, but you’re trying to do.
It sounds like a great album.
But then, I guess, the second time I go out, it becomes, like … it’s weird.
You don’t know.
I just kind of, like I have no idea.
It becomes this weird thing that I can barely write lyrics about because I just feel like, like man, I really want to do something that’s really honest, and so I’m going to do a lot of weird stuff with it.
I feel like I can do a little bit of that on the record, too.
I know it sounds like I’m saying, “I don’t want to go there,” but I just want to make it really, really honest.
