Who ever walked behind anyone to freedom? If we can't go hand in hand, I don't want to go.
I have always respected everyone's religion. As I say, there is only one God and a lot of confused people.
I think we musicians are emissaries. Every time we go before the public, we're there to make converts.
I've always known I was gifted, which is not the easiest thing in the world for a person to know, because you're not responsible for your gift, only for what you do with it.
There's only one free person in this society, and he is white and male.
