Brian Peterson author:
– My experience in hardcore is that you have the two camps of people, one of which is the people who are curious about spirituality. There’s the kids that maybe looked into the Krishna thing or even Christianity or Buddhism. Then there are the people that are, “Oh, I don’t have time for this stuff – it’s all corrupt.” I understood both sides to some extent. For whatever reason though I’ve always been curious about spirituality and religious traditions. A lot of my friends just didn’t really care about spirituality that much. But I’ve found people over the years though who have kind of got where I’m coming from; they are also looking for the deeper aspects of spirituality.
