Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger says that the band's successful career has come largely down to a number of calculated decisions. During a recent interview with Bloomberg Businessweek, he said success in music is not as complicated as it might seem.
"I always thought it was strange when these artists like Kurt Cobain or whoever would get really famous and say, 'I don't understand why this is happening to me.'"
He added: "There is a mathematical formula to why you got famous. It isn't some magical thing that just started happening. And it's going to move exponentially throughout your career as you grow, or can decline exponentially if you start to fail as an artist."
He added, however, the he never makes a decision based purely on making money:
"When you are writing a song for something else, if you are doing something for money, I always think that's bad luck," he said.
