"This is a crazy culture. Absolutely nutty. You see it reflected everywhere you look, the desperate search -- who are we, what are we, can we ever make if in the hip world? On the scene, on the go, in the know."

R
"I think people who are creative are the luckiest people on earth. I know that there are no shortcuts, but you must keep your faith in something Greater than You, and keep doing what you love."
A
"I don't know where my songs come from . . . If I knew, I'd know too much, more than we are allowed on this plane."
N
"I've gone through many, many things. I tell you something, that if it doesn't kill you, you get stronger."
K
"I sang in the coffee houses . . . in the early 60's with no idea of "success" in terms of records or television. I just thought I was a storyteller. I had this deep, bassy voice. But I had incredible passion for the music I was singing."
