James Iha QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
And they kind of left to find a guitar player at the very end, so you know, I don't really take it as any slight that I wasn't able to play on the record. It's flattering just to play with them period.

But I always remember there were African Americans at my school and they got it a lot worse, for where I grew up.

But I don't want to make necessarily three-minute pop songs - all my life.
Quotation of James Iha
But, yeah, as far as Asian Americans go, I hope they know they can look at me and see that they can do music on their own, within a band or just on their own, and not feel like there's any barriers. I've never felt any particular barriers myself, being who I am.

Even from a listening end now, I'm still completely a fan of music.

I guess in Japan I blend in more.
Quotation of James Iha
I had a roommate from... a while back, who was a friend of mine from Tokyo, and I go over there every once in a while.
Quotation of James Iha
I knew it would be kind of weird to make a record out of this band, for anybody to make a solo record out of this band.
Quotation of James Iha
I live most of the time in New York now. I have an apartment there.
Quotation of James Iha
I mean I like pop music, and I like heavy music and, stuff that I like... the band I've signed on to our label right now; they're called The Sounds. They're kind of like a new-wave pop band.
Quotation of James Iha
I was starting to produce a little bit, and write for other people before I got the call to play for A Perfect Circle.
Quotation of James Iha
I was with the Pumpkins for 12 years and it was kinda hard to get my material in for, you know, for whatever reasons.
Quotation of James Iha
If you put all the songs together that I've written on band records, and put it up next to my solo record, there's definitely a different kind of feel than Billy's songs.
Quotation of James Iha
It's hard enough to make a good song and a good recording of that song. But to try to tailor it to some outside force is just like - It's never been a factor in what I've done or what the band's done.
Quotation of James Iha
It's not like that often, I mean, I suppose out of a ratio of 10 fans maybe like 1 or 2 of 'em might be Asian, and maybe every second or third time they might bring up something that they're Asian and I'm Asian.
Quotation of James Iha
It's probably getting our old drummer back and actually playing as a band. And, I don't know, it sounds like what we do best right now.
Quotation of James Iha
Musicians always come off sounding a little bit pretentious, and a little bit... I don't know, hypocritical, from what they do, talking about strong issues.
Quotation of James Iha
No, I've heard over the years that it's nice for them to see somebody who's like, you know, a well-known successful musician who's Asian. I've heard it from a few musicians, too.
Quotation of James Iha
Other kids were made fun of for being wimpy or being gay or whatever. Kids do awful things, and I always just try to put it behind me.
Quotation of James Iha
So playing with A Perfect Circle is kind of a different thing. They've started as their own. It's their own band.
Quotation of James Iha
So there was something of a learning curve with doing your own thing and people seeing you outside of the band. I mean, people have never really heard my voice before - or heard a whole record of mine before. So it was a completely new experience.
Quotation of James Iha
The band set up in January and just started rehearsing. If there was a song, we'd just rehearse it as a band, and it would get arranged as a band, and it got changed around a lot.
Quotation of James Iha
There is a lot of work just in terms of traveling and logistics and people and gear and all that kind of stuff. But I never really have problems playing music. That never seems like work.
Quotation of James Iha
We have a partnership deal with New Line Records, which is part of New Line Cinema, and... I worked on that.

We've been doing it for 10 years, so we're not about to pay attention to what's popular now to change our sound.
Quotation of James Iha
Well, I always hope that I'm a role model.
Quotation of James Iha
Well, I'm pretty domestic actually. I walk my dog. I go grocery shopping. I hang out with friends. I'm pretty normal, whatever normal is, on my off time.

Well, they had been working with you know a couple of people while they were doing their record, and it's just . . .for whatever reason some of 'em didn't work out, and Troy, who was the original second guitar player in A Perfect Circle, ended up becoming a member of Queens of the Stone Age.
Quotation of James Iha
Well, we didn't have our original drummer on our last record. And most of that album was not played as a band in the studio. It was mostly the world of computers and overdubs. There was very few things played live or worked out as a band.
Quotation of James Iha
Yeah, I'm sure there are stereotypes of Asian people.
Quotation of James Iha
You can't really compare because I played with these guys for 2 months and the Pumpkins I've played with for 12 years, so I can't really compare it.
Quotation of James Iha
You know, it's going to be a really long tour, and well, I guess I'll see what happens with A Perfect Circle, 'cause they do other projects too, and I don't know. I hope I can always do a lot of different things, do 'em well.
