I didn't know Rio was so beautiful and when we played Rock In Rio, there is almost 300,000 people, and it was our first show, kind of, with the new lineup and it was the greatest thing ever, you know, it was just mind-blowing.

And when I just met him and worked with him at first, you know, you don't know how you're gonna work together, but he was very convicted. Everything he does is all about his music or his art and when you see someone convicted, very convicted, with their art you want to be with it, you know. You wanna-

Interviewer: [?] special?

Chris: Yeah actually, yes, yeah, because I don't, you know, I change every show, it's all original, I try to make every show completely different whereas if you're touring with a large band you kind of do the same show over and over.
