The most killer Mark Stoermer quotes that are proven to give you inner joy
I think music is a very personal thing and it doesn't necessarily have to be experienced one way or another, but the album experience is a completely different thing than the single experience.
I was always an album guy, not a greatest hits kind of guy, not so much a radio guy. I'm not saying one is better than the other but... It was like reading a novel but shorter than that. You go into a world for an hour and you absorb yourself into it rather than just passively listening and flipping through this and that.
I wasn't ready to write my own songs when I was in my early 20s.
I'm still growing but I definitely grew because of my experiences on the road and in the studio.
I might be a completely different kind of songwriter but I definitely think there are some things... I've taken pieces from different people that I've met and worked with along the way from the Killers experience, within the band and without.
I think everything you do in your life affects you creatively.
