That's what so sad about a lot of modern music,
by Alan Vega

long enough to fulfill their ultimate promise.
They only get halfway there or a quarter of the way there.

some jazz.

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

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

It's easy for me to say that now, now I'm a father,

I'm a different person.
Well, I'm still the same person, but I'm different.
- Alan Vega

We're just getting better at our trade,

That changed my life pretty much.

ya know.
It seemed like a big joke.
But I think the guy's for real, and I like his lyrics!
- 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

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

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

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!

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.

like, Johnny Cash sat and Willie Nelson and all those guys.

Believe me!
- 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.

That would be the last thing.
It terrified me, man.
But I had to do it.
- 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.

Farewell My Friend
It was beautiful as long as it lasted
The journey of my life.
I have no regrets whatsoever
save the pain I'll leave behind.
Those dear hearts who love and care...
And the strings pulling at the heart and soul...
The strong arms that held me up
When my own strength let me down.
At every turning of my life
I came across good friends,
Friends who stood by me,
Even when the time raced me by.
Farewell, farewell my friends
I smile and bid you goodbye.
No, shed no tears for I need them not
All I need is your smile.
If you feel sad do think of me
for that's what I'll like
when you live in the hearts
of those you love, remember then
you never die.
- Gitanjali Ghei

Distance cannot matter - ours is a friendship of the heart.
