“Whatever gravy train you think we’re on, it’s stopped several times in the past 15 years. Nothing is forever. The only constant is change.”
Maynard is no stranger to being pushed by circumstances, more than 30 years of experience, and with music such an established component in Maynard’s life, the interviewer asked how would he feel if it were to stop as suddenly as it began.

“It would suck. But I would find a way as I’m a resilient person. It’s not the end of life; it’s the end of that path. If that path is blocked, you fucking find a way around it!”
