"I am not one who was born in the custody of wisdom. I am one who is fond of olden times and intense in quest of the sacred knowing of the ancients." Gustave Courbet

It was something Bo Diddley told me. He always carried his own guitar. I said, "There’s a person over there who’ll carry your guitar for you, someone who looks after the equipment." And he said, "No, no, I always carry my own guitar because if I rely on that person and one day they’re not there, suddenly I have a problem." That was an important lesson for me. I try to rely on nobody else but myself, which means not blaming anyone else either.
