"The most important lessons I’ve learned from Piero are to live in each moment, and to be your most true, authentic self.

"Beat literature is based on the authenticity of those it describes. It talks about all that is not obvious but exists. In the dark alleys of the city, in the seedy bars, in the prison deals. Where the vagrants roam, where the drugs are. If you are not a part of that world, you cannot write about it."

“Culture is everything in New Orleans, from the food to the music to the architecture. New Orleans is and shall always be a celebration of African American culture and it wants everyone to be involved and join the celebration.

"The blues teach me to be open, authentic, a warrior for freedom of ideas and voices to be heard ... a path for stories of life, warts and all, to travel. Although all genres are a door to those voices and stories, the blues are raw and shake bones and soul."

"Music is one area in society where people can have different opinions and preferences but still get along. A real music connoisseur could go to any genre show and still enjoy the experience.

"Definitely it's (Blues) a state of mind! If you got the blues, you got it and you got it even if you're listening to heavy metal! From the other hand it is a huge genre and artistic movement too...it's a combination of the two. It can't be otherwise."
