Music is therapy for me. It's my outlet for every negative thing I've ever been through. It lets me turn something bad into something beautiful.


  • I saw Amadeus when I was nine years old and fell in love with Mozart. The part of Mozart's Requiem called "Lacrymosa" is my favorite piece of music ever. I always wished we could cover it, but with programming and guitars and make it cool. It's our moment to try all the things I wanted to and couldn't, so I started messing with it in Protools. Terry wrote some riffs and turned it into this awesome metal epic.

  • To me, it's always about quality not quantity.
    • Lee explaining why she's not releasing her music "too often" in the show small talk
  • If people hate you, then you're probably doing something right
  • What is the point of all this violence? Nothing is being proven, nothing is being won. Just a massive waste of life. God help us. Love>death
