Seacrest interviews Butler during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about his near death experience during a surfing accident.
It was so weird because while I was under there, it felt very normal. I thought this is me, I’m Gerry and I’m in big trouble. I always thought you would feel like you were somewhere else, almost like a dream. That made me want to push things harder for a while, because I almost pushed the wrong way for a while. I’m back remembering when you need to appreciate life but not having to push the limits.
