    Joe Cocker vol 2...

    God, I'm just a fat bald guy, 60 years old, singing the blues, you know?

    I have sung to large crowds since then, and there is a feeling that once you get over 100,000 people, you kind of lose the control element, you don't know if you are really getting through or not.

    I would like to be able to do a song with Ray Charles, before we both get too old.

    I've been touring now since about '68.

    It's interesting, as I said on the last tour in America, the audience actually came out, they had to have been the kind of fans who listened to my music via their parents, you know what I mean?

    It's nice to get a response from the artists that I cover.

    Once you get into entertaining a quarter of a million people, it's a very weird place to be.

    Politics vol 1...

    Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.

    May you have the hindsight to know where you've been,
    The foresight to know where you are going,
    And the insight to know when you have gone too far.
    ~ Irish Blessings

    America's present need is not heroics but healing; not nostrums but normalcy; not revolution but restoration. --Warren G. Harding

    An idea not coupled with action will never get any bigger than the brain cell it occupied. --Arnold H. Glasow

    And after I make a lot of money, I'll be able to afford running for office. --Christy Romano

    Bad politicians are sent to Washington by good people who don't vote. --William E. Simon

    Democracy is being allowed to vote for the candidate you dislike least. --Robert Byrne

    Democracy is the recurrent suspicion that more than half of the people are right more than half of the time. --E. B. White

    the size of your dream;
    and how you handle disappointment along the way.
