AAJ: I wish more people wanted to be better people.

TH: Right now I feel like being a good person is more important than being a good musician. Of course they're related... but...

AAJ: You mentioned earlier that you feel that musicians are good people, in general?

TH: Yeah, I learned about being a good person from musicians.
