  8. Transcript of Interview:
    David Byrne: People get carried away by music,
    they get inspired by music, they get inspired to do
    terrible things and inspired to do wonderful things.
    More than they would if you held up a painting and
    showed it to them.Do you think music is the most
    dangerous of the arts?
    Tori Amos: Yeah.
    David Byrne:David Byrne: You can't imagine
    somebody running off to war after having looked at
    a painting, but after they've heard some music...
    Tori Amos: Yeah.
    David Byrne: You could imagine that.
    Tori Amos: Prokofiev, and those Ruskies. I think
    music can also be dangerous when certain people
    play it . It's like, "Oh no, I'm dying here!" I think,
    for me, I can't imagine my life without it. I really
    can't. I think I'd be one foot in as a sewage
    manager in some plant somewhere, 'cause I don't
    know how I would have handled my aggression if I
    didn't have music. I put a lot into the piano. I sort
    stuff out.
    David Byrne: So, you think it's as dangerous for
    you as it is for the audience?
    Tori Amos: No, I think it'd be dangerous if I didn't
    have music. This is where I work stuff out. If we're
    talking about Joseph Campbell, they say that you
    probably have many myths running through your
    I think a lot in the new age puts me off because,
    "say the word 'love,' and it's all going to be okay."
    I don't agree with any of that. I feel like you gotta
    go to the shadow and you've gotta really see the
    stuff that you're hiding over here, and it's
    somewhere in here.
    I feel as far as the mythology goes, when I play, I
    pull on many different sides and it's not always
    about the good guys or the good gals, it's
    characters that have maybe done stuff that we kind
    of cock our heads at and go, "well, I don't know if
    this is a good character." I'm going, "that's not the
    point." They're in the myth, too, and sometimes I
    try and channel them. I try and bring those
    characters in and there's this tension that you create
    and you try and put yourself in everybody's
    position in the story, and that's what I try and do.
    David Byrne: Do you think when you changed your
    name or took what in the old days was called a
    stage name, do you think that was a way of
    self-determination? Of saying, "I'm going to be
    reborn as this new person?"
    Tori Amos: Well, I think it's also correcting a
    serious mistake my mother made. I'm screaming
    from the womb, "No, Mother, Myra Ellen? That's
    like the worst!" I hated that name. Especially with
    what boys can do as nine-year-olds with the word
    "Myra," on the east coast. Oh, and their accents are
    horrible anyway. But Myra! It was just the worst.
    And everybody called me Ellen instead, but
    Eh-wen, they dropped the "ll"s?
    And I gotta tell you, I wanted to torch them. And
    so, I went through some really bad names, when I
    was going through my name change period. I
    almost became Sammi Jay.
    David Byrne: That's not so bad.
    Tori Amos: Thanks, 'cause I was watching Dallas
    or no, Dynasty?
    David Byrne: I didn't know that was one of the
    Tori Amos: Yeah, Sammi Jay. She was Heather
    Locklear's character. Anyway, I was getting into
    the whole Sammi Jay thing and thank God one of
    my friend's boyfriends said, "You're a Tori," and I
    went, "You know what? You're right."
    David Byrne: Here's a little contradiction. In high
    school you were homecoming queen, voted most
    likely to succeed, etc., etc., and yet you still
    seemed to feel like somewhat of an outsider. Is that
    Tori Amos: One of my girlfriends I went to high
    school with, Cindy, came back to a show a month
    ago in Houston, she goes, "You know, I am pissed
    off with you," and I said, "Why?" And she goes,
    "You know, we were the cool chicks, we hung out
    together and you're telling everybody we were
    nerds," and I said, "Well, you weren't a nerd."
    Everybody knew I played the piano and I never got
    a date without playing a song for a guy, and I was
    pretty much intrinsically linked with this thing, this
    So, sometimes I felt like because of it, that was
    really my way in. And sometimes I was a bit
    manipulative. Write a song, pass a course, little
    things like that, and I knew if I really wanted to go
    out with a guy, if things were going all wrong
    maybe I could get him near a piano and maybe --
    David Byrne: That would sell him --
    Tori Amos: He would like me.
    David Byrne: The decision to work with a band,
    was any of that influenced by people having done
    dance remixes of some of the songs?
    Tori Amos: Well, a couple of things happened.
    Before all that happened, on Boys for Pele, Manu
    Katche played drums.
    I used to record almost all the tracks, piano/vocal
    or piano/ harpsichord live to tape, and then all the
    musicians would play on top of that rhythm
    because I had trouble with, not all drummers, but
    I'd had trouble surrendering that and trying to find
    a time where the songs didn't get pushed.
    David Byrne: Yeah, it's a lot to surrender, to make
    room for other people's parts.
    Tori Amos: And you gotta trust this drummer, that
    he knows your internal rhythm and who this song, I
    call them girls, who this particular one is and
    when she wants to pull back and when she wants
    to push. I've always said, you don't f**k to a
    And the thing is, I was going, "Manu, I don't know
    if I'm ready," and he said "Listen, I'm not talking
    about me." And this is why I loved him so much.
    He said, "You need to find a drummer that you can
    trust. That, for some reason, you have that thing."
    'Cause he's one of the greatest drummers in the
    world, and he said, "It's not about that. It's about
    some kind of secret language you have."
    And Eric Ross, who produced Under the Pink,
    who I lived with a long time, called me up after I
    lost the baby and said, "I know the guy. This is
    Matt Chamberlain, you've got to play with him."
    He had worked with Matt's band, and Matt came to
    the tropics and we hired a drum set and we
    And it was like, "I know you." He goes, "I know
    you." And that was it. And I think that was a real,
    huge turnaround.
    David Byrne: I want to ask about RAINN, the
    organization that you founded?
    Tori Amos: Yeah, with other people.
    David Byrne: We know about benefit concerts and
    that kind of thing, but what's the ongoing work
    Tori Amos: Well, what RAINN really is, is a
    group of people that make sure that the phone line
    is running, the number is 1-800-656-HOPE, and
    RAINN picks up the bills for people when they
    call from anywhere in America to a rape crisis
    center. Rape crisis centers can't afford the collect
    They're funded, they have to take care of their bills
    and there are about 600 rape crisis centers now
    that the phone line takes the caller to a counselor at
    one of these places, and RAINN is able to do that,
    and there are people. It works out of the DC Rape
    Crisis Center. That's where the hub of RAINN is.
    Part of the DC Rape Crisis Center is RAINN now.
    David Byrne: Does knowing that an ear on the
    other end of the telephone exists, help people call
    and say what's happened to them?
    Tori Amos: Well, I've been told we've had about
    225 thousand calls now since 1994, that's a lot.
    That's the good news and the bad news, but I've
    had people come up to me and say that they really
    were helped by RAINN, because it's not just a
    friend who is sitting there going, "yeah, yeah, you
    know," and kind of going like this to watch the tv
    show and they've heard it enough and you feel like
    you're imposing.
    Those people at the other end of the phone line are
    really there to talk about that. And to direct you.
    Some people need medical attention. Some people
    need legal advice. Some people need therapy, they
    really do. Some people are very ill.
