Terrible food. They don't seem to take enough time preparing it. You have to put love into food
to make it taste good.
Something that had a lot to do with my life to make me how I am physically. I was good a it; very
good. I could have been real good. I could have been the best.
Something that can be replaced.
Something that can't be replaced.
Drugs are something that if used the right way can be the most beautiful thing in the world, and
if you use them in the wrong way, they can really fuck you up. Drugs don't hurt people. People hurt themselves. It takes a
lot of time to learn that. It took me 10 years.
Is an attitude. It's an attitude that a person has when on stage. If they have it, they have it.
If they don't, they won't. The right attitude is not caring... go up there and do whatever feels good.
A place to grow up. After I left home, I was on the streets in New York, and they taught me so much.
To survive in New York, you have to have a street attitude... walk one way, you get ripped off. Walk a different way, you
don't get ripped off.
What I like about him is what he said on a radio broadcast the other day... "We're gonna outlaw
Russia forever and start pushing the buttons".
I played there two months ago. Russia is very behind the times in everything, the way they look,
the way they dress, the way they act. They really wanna learn, the kids, and it's so terrible. I met these guys, the biggest
band in Russia. They played to 15,000 people and they sold two million records. And they got 100 dollars a gig and 200 dollars
for recording their record - that's all.
They're great if you can live with them. I lived with my mother till I was 15 and I grew out of
it because of our different outlooks on life.
MEN WITH MAKE-UP
Women with make-up - what's the difference?
There used to be lot of good ones, but the only new band I like is culture Club.
It's something that you shouldn't get totally wrapped up in. It can get pretty boring if that becomes
the only thing in your life. I was gonna become an altar boy when I was about eight. It was something my mother wanted me
to do, and I never wanted to.
They're alright for some people. I try not to use them except sometimes when I'm escorting a lady.
It's okay if you don't read it.
Children are beautiful, I think. They can teach you more about yourself than anything. I have three
children. They've taught me how to treat other people, how to care about other people and why you should care. Everybody is
a person, you know. You should treat people the way you want to be treated.
If you forget where you come from, you're in a lot of trouble. Everybody should remember where they
came from... I come from Queens. New York is home. My only home. It's the only place I ever go back to.
COVENTRY CITY FOOTBALL CLUB
I don't know what they are.
SYNTHESIZERS AND DRUM MACHINES
They're boring. Just boring. With a capital B. Drum machines go along with synthesizers. They're
very artificial. They don't feel real to me. My mother could make a record with a synthesizer, probably.
Something everybody should work at. I've been working at it very hard lately. Very hard. Just trying
to be a better person, treat people better and treat myself better. There was a time when I didn't like myself so much...
I think age is great, especially when you don't get old.
I feel terrible the next day when I wake up. But when I look at my girlfriend, I feel good.
I never really liked punk rock so much. I liked the Sex Pistols. I think they were a good band.
I don't like anything else from thet era. I don't really listen to music.
MALCOLM Mc LAREN
He's a guy who's seen a lot of things and used them all to his advantage.
LAW AND ORDER
Something for everybody else. Law and order has affected me. I've been arrested a few times for
different things. I think some laws should be there and some shouldn't. When people hurt other people they should be put away.
Crime is hurting another person and stealing something.
I enjoy watching the news and movies. "Mean Streets" and "Scarface" are my favourite movies.
They're great to have. My hero was Micky Mantle, the baseball player. I was about 12. I've had other
heroes, but not like him. I guess it's pretty nice if I'm other people's hero.
I'm sorry that the Russians and the East Germans weren't there. I got tired seeing Americans taking
all the honours.
It helps. It can complicate your life - if your reputation gets involved in your personal life,
it can get pretty boring - but it's good to have it.
I'm not afraid of it. It's inevitable and it happens to everyone.
