Personal Quote:

[on the song 'Freedom performed at Woodstock] For me, the oddest thing was, I had to go see the movie to see what I did. I remember 'Freedom' and I remember 'Motherless Child,' but I didn't remember how it was structured. And I went to the movies and I saw it. It was the first time I saw myself on the screen, anywhere.
