(about one of his tattoos)
Jacoby: I deal a lot with the line between good and evil. And I tiptoe down that line myself. I have a side that's responsible, a part that knows right from wrong, and I have my punk rock, 'fuck everything' side.
Paramour Sessions being a more mature album
Jacoby: I think this record definitely shows some growth as musicians and artists but we don't take ourselves too seriously, like "this is our more mature record". But it is always an evolution. If you want to call it mature, thats cool. But for me it is just rock and roll!
on Getting Away With Murder
Jacoby: I dont think we realized how far gone we were in people's eyes. We pretty much had to prove ourselves over again, from our fans to people in the music industry. It's been an uphill fight. Nobody handed anything to us on this record. It's been us just slugging it out in the trenches and playing shows and proving to people every day that this band is legit and we're not going away.
Jacoby: Its kind of cool that we've quietly been selling a million albums. We knew (the album) wasn't going to debut at No. 1. I'm stoked to see us being successful again.
Jacoby: The rapping's gone. I dont feel like rapping anymore. I'm just over that, I just want to be a rocker. It's what I wanted to be when I was a kid.
Jacoby: We were 6 feet under. A lot of people gave up on us, including fans and critics and show premoters and record labels.
Jacoby: This is my dream. I ain't giving up. I see a band like the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and they've had their ups and downs, but they've continued with heart. We look up to that. I see Papa Roach being around for another 15 years. We've always wanted to be a career band.
Jacoby: I'm super-flamboyant, super-happy, and super-pissed-off. I'm off the hook at shows. I've done stupid things where our lawyer was going, 'You can't be doing that!' but I've also hugged a million kids. How Nirvana was when they came out - that new edge of giving kids a release of emotions - that's how I hope people connect with Papa Roach's music. I want to cause every emotion in people. I want them to fight, to fuck; I want to bring out their violence, their sadness, and their happiness.
Jacoby: My father was a Vietnam veteran and they were treated like shit when they got home. I don't support the war or Bush, but I support our troops; I want them to come home soon.
Jacoby: I'm not looking for sympathy, just understanding.
