"......

PV: And you’ve referenced Petty, Springsteen, even Bob Seger in Gaslight songs. Other artists who, like you, just like what they like, do what they do with no pretension.
BF: I feel like Tom Petty has a great balance of that, like “I don’t care what you think, and I’m doing the best that I can, and I believe in it!” I feel like he’s comfortable in his own shoes, and that’s the point you want to aspire to — of not second-guessing yourself. Although sometimes I do feel a little out of my league, like “Uhhh…I dunno if I should be here…”

PV: As a storyteller, you’ve really grown on Get Hurt though. 
There’s a new whiff of death and mortality to the material.
BF: Hey, I’m just a morbid guy! And I think I’m more morbid than people would assume. I feel like it was a developmental period in my youth, where somebody gave me Henry’s Dream by Nick Cave and something went broken in my head. I was like, “This is so cool!” And that was it. After that, I was like, “Well, I’m kind of friendly, but I kind of hate everybody, too. So I don’t know what to do.” It was this weird thing, where I was equally listening to The Ramones and Nick Cave, and that will definitely break your brain when you’re too young for that.

Ya know, people who admit to hating people always tend to be the nicest ones in my book. Anyone agree?

"Well, actually during the writing of this record, we played a couple of shows. And I got really excited about the American Slang songs again. I was like, “Guys! We haven’t played this song from American Slang in five years! Why don’t we pull these out?” And they were like, “Oh you..." like "That record now?” And I said, "Yeah, it’s a good record."

So.... I'm confused. Why is AS still very underrepresented in the set lists? Okay, it was a bit better in Australia in terms of 'different' AS songs being played compared to normal, but not more. I'll shut up about this the day that they play Boxer (album version), Bring it On, Stay Lucky, and Orphans in the same set again. Just sayin' Wink

In my experience, people who admit to liking people tend to be the nicest ones

I love that he says he's kinda friendly but hates everyone too. I feel like that daily, maybe that's why Get Hurt speaks to me....
