When I did that scene, I was flipping out, because the poor guy I was doing it to was a Filipino they had picked up somewhere. He was deaf and blind in one eye and missing a leg. I felt bad for the guy, because he was a nervous wreck the whole time, and I wasn't sure if he knew we were just filming a movie. That scene was so intense that my mom couldn't bear to watch it.
I got along great with Oliver. A really interesting guy, incredible filmmaker. I met him about a year before we started shooting Platoon, auditioning for him. Then we went out to the Philippines, which was right during the whole Marcos takeover. There were tanks in the streets, so it was a pretty scary time to be there, but a lot of fun. And I got called in to meet him again for The Doors. I told Oliver I was a great drummer - which I was not. And then I was the drummer in The Doors. That was a good time.
