"When I was fifteen, sixteen, when I really started to play the guitar,
I definitely wanted to become a musician.
It was almost impossible because the dream was so big.
I didn't see any chance because I was living in a little town; I was studying.
And when I finally broke away from school and became a musician,
I thought, 'Well, now I may have a little bit of a chance',
Because all I really wanted to do is music – and not only play music,
But compose music.
Once you free your mind about a concept of harmony and music being correct, you can do whatever you want. So, nobody told me what to do, and there was no preconception of what to do."
