I am just a little tired of the Stones and the Beatles, and I don’t care if I ever hear ‘Louie Louie’ ever again.
I figure the oldies are real close to what rocking country use to be.
A little mordida, here. A little mordida, there.
I want to go back to the format that radio started with rock n’ roll, with country artists and rhythm and blues with that oldies type feeling. I want to put it all together and...
I looked real Neanderthal. I could have been Mexican, I could have been black; I could have been anything.
I appreciate folks asking for my autograph.
I’m not crazy about the rap thing. Or house music.
I know it sounds corny, man, but I like to bring folks joy, and I like to have a good time. I know folks like to be with somebody who’s having a good time. You...
I taught myself to tune in to another person’s wavelength, figure out what they were looking for, and try to project that thing back at them.
When I started at XCRF in 1960, Mexico was the most lenient country in the world when it came to radio.
We are put on this earth to have a good time. This makes other people feel good. And the cycle continues.
My fake Japanese was smooth enough to earn me the title of ‘The Emperor of Pleasing Graciousness’ in that country.
I’ve got that nice raspy sound.
It would take me three or four lifetimes to do everything I want. I’m a Brooklyn boy who learned to hustle, and I have to do something every day or I get the guilties.

Kids like classic rock, and so do adults.
From 1958 to 1964, that’s real rock n’ roll. Then the Beatles hit and everyone sounded like them.
The one thing I’ve learned, getting out to all those foreign and domestic locales, is that people in every country of the ‘civilized’ world wish – either secretly or openly – that they had the...
I started out as an opportunistic renegade. By now, I’ve lasted long enough to become sort of an American Original Respectable Renegade.
Bob Smith from Brooklyn is a guy who sometimes gets hung with problems and fears. Wolfman Jack is a happy-go-lucky guy who knows how to party. The challenge of my life has been letting more...
If you do right, everything will come out right.
I’m very rich – in friends. I’m too nice a fellow. I give most of my money away.
I don’t want people mistreating me. I found out when you’re vulnerable and your heart’s open, then people step on you. You’re really stupid for letting that happen. And the only way to counteract that...
Half the time I feel like I’m appealing to the downer freaks out there. We start to play one downer record after another until I begin to get down myself. Give me something from 1960...
I never prayed for no money, and I never prayed for no fame. I said, ‘I’ll take care of that myself. You just keep me healthy and I’ll do all I can to try to...
