It was my first take so I guess a lot. Omar only asked me to fix one part but that was it. It is 98% first take.
I love Cygnus. I could just play that and Roulette.
Hendrix...hip hop...80's new wave.

I would love to record with that lineup. 3 are on board. Bomb St Vincent twitter and let's see if she will agree. I think D is recording with her and David Byrne. Maybe that will start it.
Kimbra is the coolest. She is going for it, musically. I bet a lot of industry execs want her to go more pop but she is legit. She wants to stretch stuff. She is a true artist.
Omar wrote those basslines so it was more, getting used to playing what Omar intended, as opposed to what Flea played. I learned Mother's Milk when I was younger. Flea destroyed it on that record.

I trip on fools that act a fool. Just be cool.
TMV A-Team consists of Matty Bitt on the panels, BobbyBadSeed on the logistics, Deezel on the kit, Chase $ running shit, Chino Weeeno on the keys, Juaneezy on the bass, O and C. A Team can never be faded. We barely rehearse and rock it as if it were our last day on earth.
I saw Snoop Lion's instagram that morning and they were all smoking...Daz, Snoop, Kurupt, Soupafly. I said to myself, "their room looks like my room...they must be here"... a couple of hours later the fire alarm goes off, here come fire trucks and I am outside telling people it had to me the blunt smoke... and it was.

hasnt started yet.
Cedric and I get along great! He makes me laugh more than anyone else I know. He should be a comedy writer. He could write for George Lopez for sure. Cedric gets along with everyone. f&$* what you heard!
Always start with the first record!
Maestro ring modulator and a Boss VB-2
I want Fender to make me a P-J that is 32", in all Dodger blue with my JA logo. That would be tight.
You are welcome!

D is one of the most dedicated musicians I have been around. For example, I asked him for some music for our Vato Negro record we were doing and he handed me a drive and said "take all the songs off this drive." I thought there would be 30-40 songs but, I kid you not, there were over 300 songs on there. Mostly complete arranged songs. He makes anyone feel like a half stepper. He is one of my closest homies. He has my back. We are in this together and we will always remain friends.

Years of bad communication and resentment building.

I would watch videos of your favorite players. See how they approach playing live. Also, there are some great instructional videos too.
I would get a Macbook and start with Garage Band and write songs in there. It will inspire you and it will sound pretty tight!

Cedric does. I believe Jeremy wrote some when he was alive too.
