A few quotes:
Quote
What's the best advice you ever received?
B.B. King laid quite a simplistic statement on me: Learn to play what you want to hear. When you're trying to learn an instrument, chances are you find yourself at the feet of a teacher who may have an idea of what you should learn. But if you learn to play what you want to hear in your head, you are steps ahead.

What's your favorite city in the world?
Las Vegas. One of my favorite houses is located there. I'm on musicians' hours, and Vegas rolls 24/7. Also, everything is square, nothing is round in Las Vegas. When you live this kind of uncertain life from being on the road, you don't like sitting in chairs with a round arm. You like sitting in a nice square chair because it has identifiable corners.

Gene Simmons says rock is dead. Do you think it is?
Maybe in his head. In my head it's still quite a robust way to express yourself. You can really let go of the stress, which is really healthy.
