"What doesn't kill you only makes your book longer."


"When I was younger, I used to hate Germany. I hated the country, the people, the language, the culture, everything! But over the years I've grown to really appreciate the German people. I learned to admire their culture, the films, the poetry, the sculptures, the paintings, the music, and also the beautiful countryside. After all those years, and going there so many times, I really learned to love the country!"


"I inherited my father's insatiable desire to meet all the beautiful girls in the world".


(about kissing band mate David M. Navarro in the Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Warped" video): "It was totally spontaneous. It was no big deal. It was not any sort of contrived design to shock. The funny thing is people are so close-minded and uptight and freaked out by human contact of the same sex that it ended up having a shocking impact. Probably a lot of people couldn't handle it and decided they didn't like us. And that's okay, because to me it's more important to make someone that can relate to it feel good than to worry about people with a bad case of homophobia. I have a sneaking suspicion that there were probably a lot of frat guys out there who just could not handle the concept. But this is just my own imagination. Apparently the Russians love it though. They're kissers from way back." - interview in the March 5th, 1996 issue of the Toronto Sun.

My feeling is that what somebody like us does is much better expressed and conveyed and related to as a policy of attraction rather than promotion.


But then when he left, I realized that it was harder to write songs and feel spiritually connected to art and music as a band. When he came back I felt it again, instantaneously.


We're able to breathe in each other's space at this point, and it was never really like that before, even when we were hyper best friends.


We did that with people like Chris Rock, Woody Harrelson, and the environmentalist Julia Butterfly Hill.


I think art is inherently nonviolent and it actually occupies your mind with creation rather than destruction.


You know I love pot, and I love beer, but I am totally sober, just because it completely stopped working for me.


I would consider him definitely one of my very best friends and I know he feels the same about me. We have a lot of love and respect.
