I feel that the greatest gift that a person can have … it's not talent. It's not money. It's a vision of something you want to be, something you want to do. To be completely honest, I feel ... in a very real way ... I've always had a vision of what I've wanted in music for myself. It's the clearest picture you can possibly paint in your mind. I didn't create it. It was just there. All of a sudden one day it was there. And I have pursued it ever since.
I am always driven by that because it is a picture of who I want to be, what I want to be, what I want to be doing, who I want to be surrounded by, what I want life to be when I wake up in the morning. I think that is the greatest gift that anyone can have because that can't help but to drive you. - Mark Poiesz, drummer for Tyler Farr
