“I got involved in improv comedy. It settled me down when I was getting wild. I was sort of an evil teenager smashing up my cars and drinking and driving, let’s just say, a lot.”

“I was charging forward too hard, into too many war zones, working too long, drinking too heavily, pushing forward, pushing forward.

“I try not to “perform.” I try to come on stage and be myself, to sing the way I would in a room by myself, to interact with the audience the way I would relate to them if we were in my kitchen drinking tea and making up silly songs.

Bobby McFerrin

“A lot of people that are in the disease of drinking and using can be caught up on the denial aspect of it. I don’t have a problem with that. I am very sensitive.
