That's what my music...
by Alan Vega

That's what my music...
I'm working on a solo record right now,
it's gonna be more hip-hop than anything,
like electronic hip-hop, futuristic hip-hop.
I'm probably gonna be rapping on it.
- Alan Vega

But of course it's always gonna be Suicide,
our fingerprints, ya know? You can't ever get rid of that.
- Alan Vega

It was when I saw Iggy Pop, that's what did it for me.
That changed my life pretty much.

That's the beautiful thing, man, we're actually better now than ever,
probably more intense now than ever,
tighter now than ever.
- Alan Vega

 

Lately I've been listening to some classical music again,
some jazz.

John Coltrane - I've been listening to the 'Trane again.
It blows you away, because I know more now and I hear
more now and I had a life that I've lived!
- Alan Vega

Experience really does make you better,
man.
- Alan Vega

It's easy for me to say that now, now I'm a father,
I've got a four-and-a-half year old boy,
I'm a different person.
Well, I'm still the same person, but I'm different.
- Alan Vega

You're gonna laugh when I tell you this,
man, but I'm starting to enjoy Eminem.

Suicide was never supposed to be entertainment.

so we'll see.

You can tell, man, there's an intensity about their stuff.
You can tell right away they're real people,
ya know?
- Alan Vega

We played in Texas about a year ago,
at Emo's,
the famous country and western club in Austin.
And I figured, well, if I'm finally gonna die onstage,
that's where it's going to be!
- Alan Vega

We're just getting better at our trade,
man.
We know what we're doing, and the reason why is that
we've spent 30 years doing it.
There's nothing that can replace that.
- Alan Vega

That's why so much of the music today sounds so much alike,
because there's no in-between.
So it's kind of nice to still turn some buttons every now and then.
- Alan Vega

People said that way back in the early days I was probably
one of the first rappers;
the reason is that I couldn't sing,
so I had to talk!
Lou Reed was probably the one who started it all.
- Alan Vega

I probably won't be able to hear it until five years from now anyway.
That's when I always hear my own music.
It takes five years to sit down with it after not hearing
it for a couple of years.
- Alan Vega

I did a couple songs with this hip-hop guy named Tim Dark.
He was working in the same studio I've been working in,
he heard my music and he said, aw man,
I've got to do something with you.
- Alan Vega

But it was great, we sit in the same dressing room where,
like, Johnny Cash sat and Willie Nelson and all those guys.
That was in itself something amazing -
I was on the same space these guys stood on,
ya know?
- Alan Vega

That's what so sad about a lot of modern music,
in my opinion, so many young bands never stay around
long enough to fulfill their ultimate promise.
They only get halfway there or a quarter of the way there.
- Alan Vega

Usually I'm the one who does the covers.
And I just said, man, it would be nice to see what somebody else could do,
outside of this thing.
A fresher look.
And I never, in a million years, would have come up with this.
Believe me!
- Alan Vega

That's something - you laugh about Eminem...
It's funny, man, because I didn't like him when he first came out,
ya know.
It seemed like a big joke.
But I think the guy's for real, and I like his lyrics!
- Alan Vega

But, Eminem...
No, I've loved rap for a long time, especially when
it got out of its first period and became this gangsta rap,
ya know this heavy rap thing? That's when I started to fall in love with it.
I loved the lyrics.
I loved the beat.
- Alan Vega

And I learned a lot from working with this kid,
and I think he's gonna be a big star.
Remember the name, Tim Dark, because he has something
about his voice that's different from all the other rappers,
even though his style is similar.
- Alan Vega

Every now and then you think about your life,
what you would like to be, you start at Number 1 and you go down to 100.
And down at the bottom, 100, was - Stage.
Go figure.
That would be the last thing.
It terrified me, man.
But I had to do it.
- Alan Vega

Listen to your intuitive inner voice
and find what passion stirs your soul.

If a man is called to be a street sweeper,
he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted,
or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry.

of heaven and earth will pause to say,
here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

Take time to laugh.
It is the music of the soul.
Take time to think.
It is the source of power.
Take time to play.
It is the source of perpetual youth.
Take time to read.
It is the fountain of wisdom.
Take time to pray.
It is the greatest power on Earth.
Take time to love and be loved.
It is a God-given privilege.
Take time to be friendly.
It is the road to happiness.
Take time to give.
It is too short a day to be selfish.
Take time to work.
It is the price of success.
- Anonymous
