#Quote
1I was married at the time when I first joined the band and my wife said: "Why don't you write a song about me?". So I wrote "She's got balls". Then she divorced me.
2There was no vocal training in my background, just a lot of good whiskey.
3[on the rock band AC/DC] I am the port with this band.

#Trademark
