Jack Kerouac's novel, On the Road is a bible of the beat generation, so there was no question that we should invite Iván Vitáris for a discussion about this book.
Even though he liked to read when he was a teenager, the school rules discouraged him from reading, as he was losing the essence of reading so he could be free and associate freely with any of the stories. On the Road was an important early read of Ivan, at the times when he started to dream about becoming a rockstar. Since those early years, his dream came true and this novel remained an important experience for the frontman.
Kerouac wrote the novel on a single roll of paper in three weeks, which he later said was dictated to him by the Holy Spirit. According to Ivan, making music and lyrics is just as intuitive. There is no explanation for them, especially no recipe.
“We spend half our lives on the road. Especially when you play in a band. The road is our home, traveling is our job. You just have to be careful not to forget who you are on the go. And when we get to the top of the mountain, we keep climbing. ”
