Sooner or later, you get back to basics. You have to (nobody let you forget where you from). I’m still that skinny black kid that was never gonna rock and roll, y’know? Forces intervened; they did for me and they will for you. But you best not forget yourself; stay true to what you got, whatever that is, ’cause it gotta sustain you. Don’t worry ’bout being loved and remembered, be lovable and memorable and then the people you need will find you and stay. Whatever you got – whatever that thing is that you do that people think you got a screw loose to even try … do that. Do that forever. People wait their whole lives for a sign, but you are the sign. You your own damn sign.
(In memory of Chuck Berry)
