Chat show host and Faith No More keyboardist was his usual eloquent self when speaking about homophobia in an interview with Westword:
“If someone had a problem with it, I don’t think they would address that to my face. Bigotry is chickenshit, you know? The Klan wore masks because they were ashamed to show their faces. The people who would have a problem with a gay keyboard player wouldn’t do it publicly; they would talk about it behind my back. So that way, I didn’t see a whole lot of resistance. ”
