Personal Quote:

There are people in this business that for years said, "He's an alcoholic. He's a drunk. He stalked Tina [Tina Sinatra]". And the clamps were put on me in many ways. Unless you're making big box office, they're going to kill you. And that's OK because one thing they can't take away from me is whatever talent I feel I have, that people feel I have. See more »
