I always knew that we were going to be successful and accomplish and succeed at our dreams. There was never a doubt in my mind. When we were recording 'Appetite For Destruction', we all knew.
My health is wonderful. I work out. I'm working. Playing music. I have a beautiful wife, a nice home, a nice car, I got money in the bank. I got three beautiful dogs that love me. Like I said, I'm blessed. I survived.
Drummers are conductors — we set the pace for the music — so if you're not relaxed and feeling right, the whole thing goes out the window.
Part of recovery is relapse. I dust myself off and move forward again.
I look in the mirror and see a few scars, but I like myself.
Nothing is cooler and more attractive than a big comeback, and that'll be me.
