Every now and then you think about your life,
by 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.

It terrified me, man.
But I had to do it.
- 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

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

I always said I was never gonna be an entertainer,
Suicide was never supposed to be entertainment.

man, but I'm starting to enjoy Eminem.

more now and I had a life that I've lived!

They only get halfway there or a quarter of the way there.
- 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

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

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

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

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 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

it for a couple of years.

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

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

If you aren't in the moment,
you are either looking forward to uncertainty,
or back to pain and regret.
- Jim Carrey

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed
by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.

Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.
