“Look, if I had a nickel for every time someone told on social media to just shut up and play guitar…
“I always actually take it as a compliment because I’m, like, no matter how mad I made them, they’re still saying that it’s worthwhile for me to play guitar. [Laughs] So I’m doing something right; that’s a compliment to me.
“I get to have an opinion, too. I just do. Everybody does. And hopefully, we can all start learning to respect each other’s opinions and even maybe find some common ground. ‘Cause a lot of that seems to be getting overlooked lately, and I hope we can plug into that.”
He also talked on the current situation of the world and said there was a panic.
“It’s a trying time, man – there’s so much going on – and everybody’s really tense and anxious, and there’s a lot of fear and a lot of anger.
“And I don’t know what to do except to talk about when I see something that’s wrong. And I’m not always great at not riling it up – sometimes I’m venting in anger myself; I’m a human being – but I’m trying to be a little more positive as I go. That’s all I can do.”
