From Billboard:

Where would you like to see DFA head in the next 12 years?

Not bankrupt? I don’t know. We’re just taking it one day at a time, like a bunch of alcoholics. This is an industry that makes zero sense. It made zero sense 10 years ago and somehow we’re still chugging along, doing the weird thing that we do. As long as we just hang out and don’t do terrible things that seem gross I’m happy. To be honest we’re so far away from there being enough money to justify compromises, so we’re safe until then.
