  • I have to say that anger is the blanket that comes around me, and that blunts and blurs my sense of proportion.
  • I don't really know any other musicians like me. I grew up backstage with my dad who played in a post-war dance band, so I always feel at home at a venue.
  • I have terrible hearing trouble. I have unwittingly helped to invent and refine a type of music that makes its principal proponents deaf.
