Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!


#Quote
1 Yeah, I can read music and I know the names of chords.
2 I've always recorded the same way. I put down as many ideas as I have, then strip them away at the mixdown. It's better to have too much music than not enough.
3 I've done a lot of talk shows where you can tell that the host is just thinking about what he wants to say next while you're answering him and that's really uncomfortable.
4 I'm not the type of player to sit home and practice scales and work on runs.
5 I'm thrilled I have the opportunity to do the 'Spread' show and have the terrific sponsors that we work with like Nikon or Verizon.
6 Jane's Addiction has only put out new music when our hearts were in and when we had something to say creatively.
7 Men are much more aggressive with their advances.
8 So as long as I can do the music or create, I'll feel fine.
9 For me, it doesn't matter how difficult something is, it doesn't matter how impressive it is, it's what sounds best that really counts.
10 Guitar playing is just something that came to me and is really second nature now.
11 I wish I was a shredder that could play everything, but I don't have the patience.
12 I'm as obsessive with health as I was with destruction.
13 I'm either shooting nine grams of coke a day or spending two hours at the gym. There's no middle ground.
14 There have been times when I felt suicidal and I would stop my head from going in that direction of negativity because I thought there'd be something I'd miss that was funny in the future. If there's a chance I'm going to laugh tomorrow then want to live to experience that.
15 It's impossible to compare two bands. It would be like comparing two lovers.
16 And I've also come to the conclusion that, as far as guitar solos and things like that are concerned, it's more important to complement the music rather than take away from it.
17 I have never been sexually aroused by a man. But I have yet to kiss Johnny Depp, so you never know.
18 As a viewer of television if there's something I don't like or find offensive, I just don't watch it.

#Trademark
1 Tattoos all over his body.
