Success is falling nine times and getting up ten.
Miracles happen everyday, change your perception of what a miracle is and you'll see them all around you.
Believe in love. Believe in magic. Hell, believe in Santa Clause. Believe in others. Believe in yourself. Believe in your dreams. If you don't, who will?
For years, I've had a hankering for the portrait of Benjamin Franklin by Joseph Duplessis. Franklin is credited with so many inventions: the postal system, lightning rods, the constitution. He was a rock star before there was such a thing.
There's a vintage which comes with age and experience.
You just stay the course, and do what it is that you do, and grow while you're doing it. Eventually it will either come full circle, or at least you'll go to bed at night happy.

There are those who advocate, and those who do. I'm not trying to slight my peers, but there is a difference between using a soapbox and actually getting your hands dirty.

Piano playing is a dying art. I love the fact that I can be one guy with one instrument evoking an emotional and musical experience.
My health and my family are the core of my being.
We've been gone five years and the best they could come up with was boy bands?
This is the way I look at sex scenes: I have basically been doing them for a living for years. Trying to seduce an audience is the basis of rock 'n roll, and if I may say so, I'm pretty good at it.
