— “Music saved me and that’s why there’s music all the way
through the film. It’s been a constant in my life since I was a
little boy. It saved me because I still kept working when I was
mis-behaving and doing drugs…I’m still alive because of that…”

 

— “I want people to come away with the thought that yes, you
can survive…and you need your friends to help you through…”

 

— “I’m loving every second of it, because it’s honest and it’s
truthful, even though it’s a fantasy. It’s truthful about me.”

 

— “Somebody suggested not having it in the film…I could not
leave the fact that I got married and I was a gay man out of the
movie…”
