How did your jam together go?
(Both look at each other and giggle)
Damon: “Er, it went OK (laughs). It has its moments! We were just mucking around, we just went through many different thoughts playing together.”
Graham: “It wasn’t exactly pop music, it was sort of meditation music.”
Damon: “It was just playing. that’s what I’ve missed, being able to sit down and jam with Graham like that because it’s the thing I love most about music. I love music so why would I not want to work with a great musician?”

“It’s like, you have the legalization of gay marriage in the state of New York and three months later you have Jamey Rodemeyer killing himself, yet another gay teenager bullied into taking his own life. And, you know, again, as a gay man, I look at that and say there’s a hopelessness that surrounds it. But as a human being, I look at it and say, “Why? Where is this disparity coming from and why can’t we as a culture, as a society, dig deeper to examine it?” We’re terrified of facing ourselves, we’re terrified of what we’ll find and so, instead, we seem to waste time and energy with small-mindedness and intolerance and with bigotry and with hatred and with fear.”—Zachary Quinto (NY Mag, October 16, 2011)
