"The first time I hung out with him, he took me to this condemned building, and it had a pizza oven (inside) and he crawled into the pizza oven and turned the heat on to 400 degrees or something like that, and he stayed in it for I guess a half hour. He came out, and except for one or two second-degree burns, he was unscathed. You meet a lot of musicians and filmmakers and actors, but it's rare to meet someone who can step inside a pizza oven and take the heat. I was intrigued by that." - On meeting David Blaine.
"If Wagner lived today he would probably work with film instead of music. He already knew back then that the "Great Artform" would include a sort of fourth dimension; it was really film he was talking about."
"What I remember myself from films, and what I love about films, is specific scenes and characters."
Attended film school at NYU but dropped out after only one semester.
He has a tattoo of a trident on his right hand.
