Chester has many personal quotes, some of which are;
“I was a geek who thought I was cool. Refused to hang out with a particular clique, but with different people from different cliques. I was a total nerd, trying to fit in. Luckily, I found music and that was my niche. That sorta took me out of my geekdom. I was never invited to parties as a teenager – I turned up with the popular people. That’s where the lyrics to ‘Guilty By Association’ came from.”
I don’t like to hold back, because that’s how you hurt yourself.
It’s not cool to be an alcoholic.
The fans are the biggest reason we do what we do.
We’re not a political band, we’re a socially-minded band.
You’re constantly trying to prove yourself, even after you’ve made it.
There are always going to be encounters that you kind of wish went differently. But the average fan really isn’t fanatical.
I have been able to tap into all the negative things that can happen to me throughout my life by numbing myself to the pain so to speak and kind of being able to vent it through my music.
And many more….
