From folk to tribal to Cab Calloway, Cole Porter, Gershwin to the Rolling Stones, whose first record was all covers, to country-western, bebop, blues, and even the referencing in classic hip hop to cliched love ballads of the '80s or whatever - that is kinda gone, and that's just terrifying to me.
I've never had a clique. It's impossible when you're always traveling.
I don't come from money or an educated family background or any sort of supportive family life, so all of my choices are made on my own.
I'm not a professional entertainer. I'm not Neil Diamond.
