Come fly with me !
You treat a lady like a dame, and a dame like a lady.
You gotta love livin', baby, 'cause dyin' is a pain in the ass.
You can be the most artistically perfect performer in the world, but an audience is like a broad - if you're indifferent, Endsville.
Whatever else has been said about me personally is unimportant. When I sing, I believe. I'm honest.
Alcohol may be man's worst enemy, but the bible says love your enemy.
The thing that influenced me most was the way Tommy played his trombone. It was my idea to make my voice work in the same way as a trombone or violin-not sounding like them, but "playing" the voice like those instrumentalists.
I get an audience involved, personally involved, in a song because I'm involved myself. It's not something I do deliberately. I can't help myself, I'm for anything that gets you through the night, be it prayer, tranquilizers, or a bottle of Jack Daniel's.
