You can't record an album called 'Meat Is Murder' and slip out for a burger.
A lot of people, given the chance, would blow up everything, and you and me.
It would have been an interesting run if we hadn't gotten along! It was good casting, I suppose.
Over the years I've had more and more of an association with Nashville.
