Music is the most powerful thing on this earth, and it’s hard to be angry when you are listening to music.
I have spent over 60 years bent over a guitar and to know that I wrote 70 compositions that masters have recorded, that makes me feel so good and full, and proud and thankful to the good Lord.
I used to get on a stove wood pile at 5-6 years old and I would have a piece of stove wood and kindling bark as a pick, and I was a star.
When I was a kid of six or seven, I used to get up on the stove woodpile for a stage and I’d put on the wildest show.
