Jay talks about the evolution of the punk rock
"I didn't think it was that out of reach, but I don't think anyone ever expected the numbers when Green Day and Offspring were doing 15 million (albums). But I didn't see (punk) being that far removed, especially those that were respected musicians."
Jay talks about plaing in front of 15 year old high school girls with these large line-up gigs.
"Considering that's the business that were in: playing music. That's who you end up playing with: new bands. We've seen every new and exicting band that's come up. It keeps things vibrant."
Jay talks about the fear of having a failure:
"In the band, the biggest thing that we ever did that brought on a fear of failure was Into the Unknown. It's a progressive rock album and it wasn't really my thing. We were producing with Todd Rundgren ... It had its purpose, which was the backlash against punk rock, but in the studio, we were still getting done with the first song and I felt that this album was going to be a failure and I quit, just because it just seemed like something I didn't want to stick with."
