Jessi is a great person. She really is. She's been a friend to me all through all my bad times, and she's understood what I was doing. She came up with that one saying, which was great.
I may be crazy, but it keeps me from going insane.
Mainly what I learned from Buddy... was an attitude. He loved music, and he taught me that it shouldn't have any barriers to it.
I mean, I think we're put here on earth to make your own destiny, to begin with. I don't think there's anything you can do this way or that way to change anything.
Don't ever try and be like anybody else and don't be afraid to take risks.
Honesty is something you can't wear out.
A lot of times they don't want to hear it. But you know, if some good is done to you, you should pass it on.
But Buddy was an upper. He was happy. He loved music, and he was really happy. I don't know... I don't believe in reincarnation at all, but if all that stuff is true, then he might have been on his last time around.
So I'm not very popular here with those inside the system, as you might guess. I never wanted to be.
Cuz I was never pretty anyway and never cared anything about that.
I didn't aim at anything except good music.
I love Johnny Cash, and I respect Johnny Cash. He's the biggest. He's like an Elvis in this business, but no, he's never been the rebel.
But you know, the system almost destroyed itself while it was goin' on trying to destroy us.
I never have any problem getting enthusiastic with a good song and a good band.
One thing is that I wasn't getting booked that well, and they had control over who got the awards, they had control over who sold. And they really did not want Willie or me, either one, to have a hit record. They wanted the money, but they didn't want us to be the ones.
