The eighth issue of Seed Strategy’s The Fire Theft Project: Conversations on Creativity features Claudio Sanchez, front man of the multi-platinum rock band Coheed and Cambria and graphic-novel author.
The new digital magazine is now available on the magazine’s website, TheFireTheftProject.com.
This riveting interview digs deep into Sanchez’s repertoire to explore how he fuels his creative fire, how his band has managed to thrive for over 20 years and how he continues to discover fresh creative avenues to pursue—like his newly published children’s novel (which started out as a rock opera). “I’ve based my entire career off of being a dreamer,” he tells interviewer Jonah Bayer.
- Understanding your process: “My wife is always like, ‘you’ve got to sit down and write,’ but I can’t put time aside and go to work, it happens when it happens,” Sanchez tells us.
- Putting a twist on the personal: Sanchez draws inspiration from his life to use as a jumping-off point for something wonderfully tangential. “I never thought my own life was interesting to talk about, so I would create fiction around it.”
- The Amory Wars crash course: Seven of the band’s eight albums are designed to accompany a graphic novel series, The Amory Wars. We provide a quick-and-dirty plot summary for newcomers.
