So when we get together, everybody will just plop a bunch of stuff down on the table and say, "What fits? You'd think there'd be ego problems in this, but there hasn't been one problem with ego in this whole thing. " With so many big personalities in the band, how do you expect traveling to go? The fun thing about this is when I said we argued earlier, I was joking. I think everybody's just happy to be doing it because it's fun to do. He came up to [my studio,] the Boneyard, and Steven and I and him spent a weekend and wrote some songs together. Cooper: That's not a bad bar band right there.
