Always be different
don't follow the rules. Don't do what anyone tells you. Don't use the same sounds as people
don't use the same drums as people.
I let the song come to me. Then that thing comes to you, and you just know what that thing is. Music isn't like a 9-to-5 job. You never know. It's just the most unpredictable thing.
I am still waiting for the day that they say, 'Time's up, Blanco. Back to your shift at Walmart.'
I'm not particularly good at anything. I'm not an incredible guitarist or piano player or songwriter. I think what I do is, when I notice someone is really good at something, I try to get that out of them.
