Personal Quote:

[observation, 2014, on not yet being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame] If it happens? Great. If it doesn't happen? Great. I can still play 'Gear Jammer' better than anyone on the planet. I'm still working. All of those things are like gravy on top of your meal. Bonuses to your existence. I just wanna put out good product and make a living. See more »
