When I played God Bless The Queen, I was wondering if they was gonna dig us, then quite naturally I’d go on and try to get it together.
White collar conservative flashin down the street, pointing that plastic finger at me, they all assume my kind will drop and die, but I’m gonna wave my freak flag high.
Sometimes you want to give up the guitar, you’ll hate the guitar. But if you stick with it, you’re gonna be rewarded.
You have to forget about what other people say, when you’re supposed to die, or when you’re supposed to be loving. You have to forget about all these things.
The reflection of the world is blues, that’s where that part of the music is at. Then you got this other kind of music that’s tryin’ to come around.

I have this one little saying, when things get too heavy just call me helium, the lightest known gas to man.
I wish they’d had electric guitars in cotton fields back in the good old days. A whole lot of things would’ve been straightened out.
All I’m writing is just what I feel, that’s all. I just keep it almost naked. And probably the words are so bland.
I don’t have nothing to regret at all in the past, except that I might’ve unintentionally hurt somebody else or something.
To be with the others, you have to have your hair short and wear ties. So we’re trying to make a third world happen, you know what I mean?
When we go to play, you flip around and flash around and everything, and then they’re not gonna see nothin’ but what their eyes see. Forget about their ears.
I just hate to be in one corner. I hate to be put as only a guitar player, or either only as a songwriter, or only as a tap dancer. I like to move around.
Rock is so much fun. That’s what it’s all about – filling up the chest cavities and empty kneecaps and elbows.
