How has having your own studio helped you with the recording, not just in terms of the technical aspect, but personally, the feeling of knowing that you could just live here if need be?
"I couldn’t imagine it any other way, you know? A couple of years ago, I didn’t have a studio and I would just come home from touring and I wouldn’t play drums. I would get heavy into cars. I didn’t have kids then. I would do something completely different. I would come home from long tours and just want to do something else.
"Then, something snapped a couple of years ago and I wanted to be here at the studio any chance that I get. Like I said, there’s always something going on here. I’m doing the soundtrack to our skate video from Stars And Straps that comes out later this year, right around the same time my album drops.
"So that’s going on. Between that and my album, and finishing up the Paul Wall album, it’s crazy!"
