I find most children quite inspiring.
In the beginning of Audioslave, I was very honest. I said, ‘We make great albums and write great albums – but don’t be under the impression I’m going to be a lyricist that writes anything other than what strikes me as inspiring in the moment.’ The lyrics weren’t going to be focused politically.
