Here’s a funny thing. About 2 weeks before we left for Soundwave, I saw Matt Skiba from Alkaline Trio at a café in LA, and I was having a meeting with my band; everybody left, I stayed back for a second and I said “You know what? We’re sitting 2 tables away, I’m just gonna say: ‘Hey man. Thanks for the music, I appreciate it.' I'm not gonna mention that I'm in a band, I don't need to do all that”.
