Alt Sounds - Rick Allen Interview Quote

"Everybody's been very supportive. Yeah, just well wishes. On opening day it was fantastic. We all do that with each other. I want all the guys to succeed in whatever they do, and it really adds to the collective, I think. When we all come back together its really fresh. Its fantastic when we've all been off doing our own thing, you know. And I think its good for the whole band. Its good for the perception of the band; people see that there are other things in our lives than just the music. Its wonderful that we get to express that as individuals and come back together and ROCK! We can't stop rocking!"
