We became friends as we became a band. Our friendship evolved as the band evolved. It had its ups and downs, but it was mostly ups for the four of us. We got along well almost all of the time. Hey! We liked each other and we still do.
You can't control how you are perceived, and you are a fool if you waste any energy trying to do so. Vanity will get you nowhere.

It never got ugly, although it got a bit strange at times.
When it came to the music that we produced, I am pretty happy with what we did.
