"If being an egomaniac means I believe in what I do and in my art or music, then in that respect you can call me that."

"Im not going to change the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything. I've always been a freak. So I've been a freak all my life and I have to live with that, you know. I'm one of those people."

"If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there'd be peace."-John Lennon-
