Oh, it's such a perfect day, I'm glad I spend it with you,
Me, I've concentrated on music pretty much to the exclusion of other things. Lou Ree
I've never been super confident about anything. The work is never as good as it could be.
Rock and Roll.
First thing you learnis that you'vealways got to wait
I like mindless disco... they say the lyrics are stupid and repetitious. So what's wrong with that? So is lying in the sun. Not everything has to be serious.
I don't know what goes on in the crowd. I've had them show up and throw beer cans at me. I caused riots in most of the major cities.
It's depressing when you're still around and your albums are out of print. Lou
I can create a vibe without saying anything, just by being in the room. Lou
There's a bit of magic in everything, and some loss to even things out. Lou
So all those kids out there who think mix and match is really great, you don't know what you're talking about, ... I'm a professional. I do this for a living.
For the truly obsessive, they can get the original Poe. I amplify it. I think it's more understandable.

I've gone out with my shotgun. This is hunting country out there. You better run.
You know the expression 'God protects fools and drunks'? I qualify for both.
When I saw that combination of grace and power, the fast and the soft, the yin and the yang, that's what I'd been looking for.
