1If you've got a guitar and a lot of soul, just bang something out and mean it. You're the superstar.
2The beat of popular music sets the pulse of its time.
3Don't follow a trend. Follow your heart.
4My lot in life is that every band I've ever been in just falls apart. That hurts but I've got a thick hide from years of conditioning.
