ON WASTING LIGHT
This is the best album we've made. To make it with Butch, 20 years later is a really nice full-circle moment. The two of us are bonded for life by Nevermind.
ON NEVERMIND NOT WINNING ANY GRAMMYS
So many bands haven't won. Maybe it wasn't our time. But the kids seemed to like it and thats all that matters.
ON HIS FAVORITE GRAMMY MOMENT
When Arcade Fire won Album of the Year in 2011. I jumped up and down like I was watching a football game. I immediatey texted them.
ON HIS LEAST FAVORITE
We were up for five Grammys in 2006 and all got dressed up in suits. While in traffic trying to get to the red carpet we lost four in the pre-telecast show.
ON HIS SONGWRITING HERO, PAUL McCARTNEY
When I listen to Blackbird or The Long and Winding Road. I wonder how he pulled that out of htmself.
ON ROCKING IN HIS 40s
When you're in front of 50,000 It's the greatest energy drink you've ever had. That and three shots of Jagermeister.
