"Everything we set out to do as a band we achieved 100 fold. After you've done that it becomes diminishing returns in terms of satisfaction. I think a band is like a gang. It's like a street gang, teenage gang. You can't really evolve as a human being in a band. I think you're constantly being pulled back into being in the game. So there's no freedom there."
