If I worried about appearances, I wouldn't be at Cubs games.
You could have a zillion Facebook followers. Those people don't buy records. It's about a hundred to one...Record companies, they don't have any money, so they see social media as the free marketing... So... 'Billy, light yourself on fire and stand upside down, and that'll market the record.'
I mean, I'm certainly not a 'teaophyte,' or whatever the word would be.
I do not think wrestling is going to save the world.
The great thing about rock n' roll is, if you want to fight - like, fight the system, fight the man, fight the government, fight the people in front of you - it's Don Quixote all over again. You're really chasing windmills.

Where is this great love for rock and roll that existed for 50 or 60 years?
I grew up in a house of no love or emotion - it kind of sticks with you.
It's important for people to talk and get beyond the wall of Facebook and social media.
I often have deer on my property and there's a fox and owls. You're not going to see that in the city.
James, that's a bad situation. I'm not saying it's not repairable, but it's pretty far. When you go from being in one of the best bands in the world to some cover band... as far as I'm concerned, he was playing down at the pub.
We need to get back to a level of social responsibility that we haven't seen for a long time.
In our lives in a lot of ways it's all about fake. You've got people wanting things for fake reasons.
I don't wanna play this kind of cartoon character anymore.
