I've toured the U.S. every single year and I've put a record out every single year whether it was on a major label or not that doesn't make any difference to me.
I never solicited a major label and I certainly wouldn't now.
I started playing guitar when I was in my late teens, and within two years I was starting to play shows.
We went into that knowing that we were never going to sell a major record 'cause we didn't sound like these bands, so I just thought this was an opportunity for us to make the kind of records that we wanted and make some money at the same time.
We signed an amazing deal with 100 percent artistic control simply because when we signed it Nirvana were at the height of their fame.
