"It's all mental," is how Colpitts describes it. It's not about flashy fills or pro chops — it's about "bumping up against your physical limits, and in a way that helps to dictate the piece. You're supposed to play as hard as possible, reach down into yourself and find out what your limits are, and what preoccupies you. What can survive that kind of performance as coherent thoughts. But you have to survive it as well, and pace yourself somehow. It's a balance. Man Forever is like sprinting for 40 minutes."
