But, as the Greeks say: ‘Know thyself!’ I would rather die than deny my nature. [My creativity comes from that same place as poets John] Milton and [Percy Bysshe] Shelley, [occultist Aleister] Crowley, [poet] William Blake and the Bible itself.

“I will always remember my little tipsy father coming back from work with an acoustic guitar when I was seven or eight,” he remembered fondly. “I still don’t know where the fuck he got it.
