Michael Monroe states that he’s a “regular guy” during his time off
In terms of the phrase “One Man Gang“, Monroe was asked what that means to him to which he replied: “Well there’s that as well but it’s also that I’ve been referred to as a nice bunch of guys at times! But when that song was born and I heard the title I thought that was just the perfect album title for this band because it’s a band, even though it has my name it’s a real band situation which I’ve created so it’s the perfect title for this album – we’re a gang and that’s me, you know. I mean I don’t walk on water but I know a trick or two, Jesus walked on water but I don’t know that trick, but I do have a few up my sleeve of my own. And riding on the PMA (positive mental attitude) I try to concentrate on the positive because what you concentrate on tends to multiply.”
In regard to what he likes to do outside of music, Monroe indicated: “Outside of music, oh, just music! (laughs)” He then expanded and stated: “I like movies though, when I’m chilling out I’m a movie fan, mainly older movies classics and that, good movies I like to watch and I like to take walks, but just simple things, nothing special I’m just a regular guy in my time off. I don’t like to travel too much because I travel because of my work so my favourite thing to do to recharge my batteries is just to stay at home with my wife and two cats and watch TV (laughs).” He added: “That’s special to me (laughs)”
