Quotes (3)

  • I found that I was just hopeless at school. It was just a total bore. First I passed in art and English, and then just art. Then I passed out.
  • To me our music is like Jamaican stuff - if they can't hear it, they're not supposed to hear it. It's not for them if they can't understand it.
  • I spoke to Paul Simon about this and he said, 'Hey man, before Graceland I was dead in the water. Nobody was checking my stuff.' So he's a realist. He had some barren years after stuff like One-Trick Pony, and out of the hat he pulled Graceland. So life is interesting: anything can happen. But you've got to be tough enough to take a spell in the wilderness, instead of hoping to be in the spotlight the whole fucking time. People get sick of you.
