Blues and jazz pulled me away from what was left of my family.
When I reflect on how things have changed, I can't help but laugh.
Once you became associated with a children's show, you're finished.
I wanted to be able to play guitar. I wanted to be able to make music hurt.
Since the age of 12, all my musical thinking has been influenced by Afro-American music.
I'm a compulsive musician, but it's also a bloody good way out of having to do anything else.
I can't explain why one wants to pass a particular sort of pain onto other people, but you do.
The parallel development in American blues to the British movement has resulted in Johnny Winters.
I must have been heavily schizophrenic all my life. The me who hears what the other me can't play is the dominant one.
Every musical movement that is big enough has to produce some good musicians who wouldn't have had the incentive to start playing without it.
