“The only thing I took seriously in my life was music. Before Thirty Seconds To Mars, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. I was doing construction. I was breaking the law. Jared often jokes about kids from the wrong side of the track, I was definitely one of those kids. I reached a point in life where I needed some sort of change and music was the only thing that made sense.”
Happy 44th Birthday, Shannon Leto (March 9, 1970)
"My early thirties were rough. I went through stuff that I would have gone through, and probably should have gone through much younger, but I had spent my twenties working. Even when I was the right age for older roles, people thought of me as being younger. It was tough because I’d had so much success in my early twenties."
