Quotes

#Quote
1 I'm just a '60s kind of guy. It's all love and peace. People say all my playing still sounds like The Doors, but did I sound like The Doors or did The Doors sound like me?
2 [on collaborating with slide-guitar master Roy Rogers] It's simple. You just change focus and adjust your mind. It's as easy as taking off your Giants cap and putting on your Dodgers cap. Everybody loves a blues show. Republicans and Democrats, alike, love the blues.
3 I miss him [Jim Morrison] every day. What great company he was. Talk about going to the pub and having a couple of beers with the guy--Morrison was perfect. He's been haunting me for some 40 years now, and I miss him every day.
4 When I got the call to say Jim [Jim Morrison] had died in Paris I refused to take it seriously. Our manager, Bill Siddons, flew to Paris to establish the truth--but by the time he got there Jim had been buried. The coroner said that death was due to a hemorrhage brought on by a heart attack, which was caused by taking a too-hot bath after a heavy drinking spree.
5 Johnny Depp has beatnik blood.
6 Maybe, maybe we can make the world a better place to live and to love and to get high...'cause it sure ain't that now, man!
