I was a virtuoso of all the folk-blues guitar styles by the time I reached 17.
My music translates again and again to younger generations of players because I broke all the rules, and they can break all the rules now, too.
In 1968, I bought a 114-foot yacht, built in 1946, and lived on the Greek islands for a while. We had an extraordinary time in it. Then I gave it to The Beatles.
Meditation is certainly not a religion, cult, or spiritual path: it's actually a very basic practice to reduce stress.
The similarity between my music and The Beatles' music is it has within it a very positive quality. It's woven with humor.
When I met Bob Dylan, I was definitely impressed. This guy had come from the American folk world, but he was very schooled in poetry, too. He'd studied the Beat poets, of course. I grew up in the British bohemian scene. Dylan grew up in the American bohemian scene. So I was very pleased to meet such a guy.
