Best Quotes:

Falling out of love is like losing weight. It's a lot easier putting it on than taking it off.

If a song's about something I've experienced or that could've happened to me it's good. But if it's alien to me, I couldn't lend anything to it. Because that's what soul is all about.

I've never recorded anything I didn't like.
