I think about how selfish they are and how much it blows me away that after two times of trying this, they still think they have any opportunity of doing it without me. And it’s not me saying that I’m the greatest because you know what? I’m not. John Lennon. Paul McCartney. They are … better than I am. But as far as this band goes? The vision? The artistic direction of the band? And trying to keep them from sounding like Rush? I’m sorry. I have to be totally honest. It was me. I’m guilty. I kept them from doing it. That’s all I’ve got to say.
