“There are a lot of bands and performers whose careers are permanently derailed by spectacularly bad management.”
“I never got a chocolate birthday cake; I got a carob one. And when I went to other kids’ houses, I was very covetous of things like Cheez Whiz that I’d find in their refrigerators.”
“I’m a reasonably articulate individual.”
“I’ve had some interesting stuff happen to me – so why doesn’t anyone ask me?”
“You never know how things are going to go. I think you hope that people are going to dig what you do and that you’re going to get the chance to do it on a really comfortable level.”
“I did actually have a deal with Columbia, but it became increasingly clear to me after signing with them that they didn’t know what to do with me and I didn’t know what to do for them, so we agreed to go our separate ways.”
“I was really, really, really enthusiastic as a kid. I was up for anything. I was hugely into music and theatre. I was a big musical theatre kid; I loved reading.”
