Cris Cohen: I read in another interview you did where you said, “I have a philosophy that every single note I play matters.” Does that ever get in the way of seeing the big picture? Because it sounds like, if you go down that road, you could get really hyper-focused and miss some of the grand scheme of things.
Mark Schulman, drummer for P!nk: That's a fantastic question. But remember what I said earlier: First and foremost, I'm there to be of service. It's funny, because people describe what it is like when you are playing on stage. It's this sort of hyper-awareness where you are totally present and foreshadowing the future, paying attention to everything you do, as well as really paying attention to what everybody else does. I am so acutely aware of everybody else. That's one of the reasons why I get the gigs that I've gotten is because of my awareness of others. So it's this hybrid of me paying attention to the nuances of what I play and paying attention to every little nuance so I can play off of everybody else and respond or change or shift or whatever needs to happen. Because I'm there to be of service first.
