Quotes

  • I’ve sold two million records, I’ve toured around the world singing in front of thousands of people. And there’s a girl sitting across from me in English 101, and I just look up at her every once in a while and put my head back down. I’m still a pathetic fool. No matter how many records I sell, I’m never going to be in Kiss.
  • I had rock-star dreams from 8 or 9 almost nonstop. I thought it was going to be like being a God on earth: having as many women as you want whenever you want them, having super powers, being incredibly wealthy, never doing laundry. Instead I found myself in the dead of winter in Boston with a long beard, no friends and a bum leg. It was pretty disillusioning…
  • I love getting older, though. I just feel like I have more control over the universe — or my small corner of it, at least.
  • Your brain is always searching for reasons to doubt yourself; I’m pretty experienced with that.
