"EverythingRock: What are your thoughts on illegal downloading? Do you see the possible benefits in it?
Devin Townsend: Fill your boots. Take it all. Money fucking sucks! I make music for people to hear it so get it however you want! If you want to buy a shirt somewhere, that's cool, if you don't, that's cool. If you're making music strictly to make money, you might as well find another job. I make it because I want people to hear it and I tour my ass off and we make a living, but ours is not the position to complain. If you do a good enough job, then eventually it'll work out for you.
EverythingRock: We can see it's worked for you as you have some great fan support!
Devin Townsend: Yeah, man, it's insane! That's why with the box set I went out of my way to make it good because I know people will buy it. I guess it's a learning curve at this point, and I don't know what's right or wrong but I know what's right and wrong for me and I think that there's a certain clique in the industry that's "If you lie to everyone, we'll pay you lots of money," but again, it's just money and you're stuck with a bunch of money and an empty soul so if it means you have substantially less money and you're happy, then fucking right. So yeah, if you know anyone who hasn't heard what I do, just tell them to download it all. [Laughs]"
