The juxtaposition between fishing and touring couldn’t be greater.
– Dean Ween
I would read fishing reports on the road and then it just occurred to me: I should go to sea school and get my captain’s license, see if I can get paid to be out here every day.
We don’t know what we’re doing. We don’t have a plan. We don’t sit down and calculate it.
I get sick when I think about someone going to iTunes and downloading two songs off our album. It’s not meant to be listened to that way.
If you write 50 songs, you’re bound to write at least a dozen good ones.
I want to make 20, 30, 50 studio records.
When you make a great record, it’s around forever.
It’s quantity, not quality.
On tour, I’ll get up at 5 p.m. and go to bed at 8 in the morning. With fishing, it’s the exact opposite. Fishing is the only healthy thing I do. Touring is such a grind; it’s the opposite of healthy.
If you can find one thing in your life that can keep you in the moment, you’re totally lucky.
When you first start doing it, being on tour is inspiring, because you’ve never been anywhere.
