"Music can be such a driving force for good. Because it plays on a person's emotions, it can also make evil attractive. It's a decision we all make every day in so many little and big ways. Are we on the side of good for the world, or are we angry and on the side of destruction? Young people many times don't understand the power of the music they listen to."

"I mostly miss all the characters, the old timers, the real deal blues guys and all the craziness that we all experienced together.

"I think that poetry is great training for a songwriter. You learn to use the right word not just for what you are trying to say, but also for the emotion of the song, and for the meter of the song. The lyrics are definitely an important part of my songs. As a child, I loved the lyrics of so many songs I heard, and today I still appreciate a well-written lyric."

"I think that Blues is essentially American music created by Afro-American descendants by means of expression, solace and escape from terrible conditions of slavery and segregation suffered by the hands of European and North-Americans white people. These conditions have changed in a very good measure and the music as a way of expression It don’t have much relation with those conditions."
