Personal Quote:

Billy took me over to this... little white piano that had eight thousand cigarette burns on the keys, and a whole bunch of keys didn't work at all... Billy told me he played around those keys. And I saw him playing and he didn't just skip the keys, he played around them! And I said 'oh boy...'.
