You have Filter up and running again and you have a new album The Trouble With Angels. We’ll get to that in a minute. A couple of years ago you put together a band called Army of Anyone with Robert and Dean DeLeo and drummer Ray Luzier. Why is that band not active today?
We put that band together and we put a lot of time an energy in it. When it came we looked at each other and said “alright then that was that.” We got busy with the bread and butter of our careers; Ray went on to join Korn, the DeLeo brother reconnected with Scott Weiland and got Stone Temple Pilots together and I got Filter active again.
Army of Anyone was a really great experience, it really was. In my opinion it might have taken too long…you have to realize it was four years of our lives. In retrospect I think had we gotten in the studio and knocked it out quickly it might have taken off. Instead it became this laborious project that was released and we tour behind for eight weeks and that was it. In the end Filter is my musical legacy and I’m glad to be back
