Many hotels, I just sat there and – I call it the silent scream – I don’t know why, you just sit there, and tears will just come down, and you’ll just sit there for hours, man. There’s no place to turn, and when you do turn, who cares? You’re just a dumb professional wrestler.
I like work, I like song writing, and I like the history of Atlantic Records. They’ve sat in the studio with so many artists – like Ray Charles, for example – and created something amazing. As a label, they seem to be great at growing bands rather than telling you how to do it.

I sat down and wrote, ‘Are your emotions pure? Are they the stuff of heroes or the alloyed mess of the beaten? How do you stand in relation to the potato?’ And it was a lot of fun, and I kept going and woke up at some point in some horror that I had about 142 pages of this.
Baldwin gave expression to the longings of blacks in exalted prose. He was embraced, in the tradition of Negro Firsterism, even by those who never sat down with a book, as our preeminent literary spokesman, whether he liked it or not. Neither athlete nor entertainer, but nevertheless a star.

I actually hated hunting the first time I went when I was a kid. My dad took us deer hunting. We sat there for 30 minutes, and I felt like I was losing my mind.

When my boy has lost 4-0 on a Sunday morning, I’m the Dad in the car saying: ‘OK mate, don’t worry, we can do this or do that’. When I got in the car after losing a game I sat in the backseat and had to keep my mouth closed.

I grew up in Houston, and I remember we had separate drinking fountains, and black people sat in the balcony of the theater… We had an African-American housekeeper growing up who was really like my second mother. I thought it was silly – hatred just because of the color of somebody’s skin.
