I don’t want to give the illusion that one day God came down and I was healed.
The reason I became a better player was because I came to Philly.
I didn’t even think about movies where I came from. I wanted to be on the stage.
I don’t think there’s ever been any music quite like what we came up with.
I finally felt that I came into my own when I went on the stage.
When I first came to this country, I didn’t know how to speak English.
And out of darkness came the hands that reach thro’ nature, moulding men.
