"I'm basically channeling all the energy from all the people that are around me, whether it's positive, negative, pain, pleasure, whatever they're experiencing," he tells Crossfade. "I can feel their energy. And I don't know exactly what it is, but it's pumped into me directly like a fucking drug in a needle, straight to my vein." Challenge accepted.
