"The coolest thing was taking music school when I was four for drums. The next coolest thing, reading at an early age, taking music from four to six, before I was in regular school. The *next* coolest thing, when I stopped taking lessons at six, my music teacher said to me, 'Don't you want to be a star? Don't you want to have all the girls and this-and-that?' So, I said, 'Yeah, but I gotta keep the lessons,' and he said, 'No, you gotta concentrate on your schoolwork.' So I said to him, I said, 'Well…' He said, 'Why don't you write music? You have your notes.' I said, 'Okay, well I can *write* music…' He said, 'Well, use your spelling lists.' And from then, I just excelled.
Watch out folks; he's got a camera...
