And the radio hated us at first because we were jazz musicians with big amplifiers playing as loud as we could possibly play, and fast. And we looked good, and we were smiling, so we didn’t look like the typical jazz musicians who were strung out, with their back turned to the audience, you know, downtrodden and all that kind of stuff that the jazz critics loved to write about back then.

And so we just pushed our way through because we had people that believed in us. And I am still that type of idealist that believes that, when you have people who believe in you, it makes you greater. It makes you better and you just keep going. Now that’s what I would tell my kids (...)."
