You seem to have an affinity to The Joker. Why?
I always had a wry sense of humor and a lot of times growing up I was the class clown. So The Joker was the first comic character I felt an affinity for. I like truth tellers and to me The Joker represents that. The music industry’s very artificial, a lot of smokes and mirrors. I think theatricality’s great, but it’s got speak to a larger truth. I like The Joker because when he’s written well, it is a guy arguing a point of view. He’s trying to prove a point to Batman and to the society at large and I am trying to do that with my music. That’s what you see in The Dark Knight and The Killing Joke.
