Featured article: Kerrang! article - April 27, 2002


The following is an excerpt from a Kerrang! interview with Rivers Cuomo.

Kerrang!: Do you consider yourself a normal person?

Rivers: I consider myself a normal person in extraordinary, abnormal circumstances. I think if anyone were in my position they would end up acting like I do.

Kerrang!: Why did you pull that little rock star trip today?

Rivers: There’s incidents like that all the time.

Kerrang!: I think you’ve been childish, a bit "toys out of the pram". Do you know what I mean?

Rivers: I think so (laughs). Well, I try to give myself complete license to do whatever I want at any time regardless of how it affects other people and … I think the benefits I gain artistically from living like that outweigh the costs of, um, all the problems that I have with society.

Kerrang!: Meaning?

Rivers: Everyone hating me.

Kerrang!: What kind of person does that make you?

Rivers: Selfish…immature.

Kerrang!: And you’re alright with that?

Rivers: Yeah, I’ve tried all different kinds of ways of living and I’ve discovered that this is the most conducive to creativity, acting on whim regardless of consequences.

Kerrang!: With no consideration for other people?

Rivers: No. Occasionally, I’ll have pangs of conscience but I try to overcome them. To me that’s a small price to pay.
