    I finally got in to read it
    --- There have been times where I’ve given up wanting to even be on the road anymore. That’s the sad truth for me. I get to a place where I’m just tired. My body is exhausted. My mind is tired. My voice is tired. You want to be home.

    Wonder if retirement is coming soon?
    Other things....
    --- Do you think Steven Tyler wants to sing “Dream On” every night thirty years later? Fuck no! He has no desire to sing that song, but he gets up there and does it. When he sees thirty-thousand people singing along with him, his whole train of thought changes at that point. It’s about delivering to the audience and playing the songs.
    ---“Dude, it’s not about you. It’s about the audience. All of those people came here tonight.
    --- I personally think we should all do the male version of “Lady Marmalade” [Laughs].(can't you hear him laughing?)
    --- I learned the proper etiquette, how to tour right, and put on a proper production. I’ve got to give a lot of props to the man. I’ve learned a ton from Sully. He’s a brilliant individual and a talented guy.
    --- . I love the diversity of music and think it’s important people keep trying different things because otherwise we all sound the same. We have to have those kinds of influences. My hat’s off to them.
    --- We’re not going away. You’re not going to kill it. If you don’t love it, that’s fine. Whatever feeds you those vibrations and gets you off your feet is where you need to be. Rock music is our art. We play our instruments, sing our notes, break cymbals, and smash guitars. That’s the beauty of what we do.
    **********What a cool badass guy!****************
