I love playing with makeup. Makeup has become a thing where it's an art form. It's not a thing where you use it because you need to feel beautiful or because you don't like the way you look.
When you've been playing for 35 years, there aren't too many 'firsts' left. But this is definitely the first time we've ever played a record company's lobby.
If it seems like you are playing around and not practicing, that's when you know you really love it.
I just love playing in major championships.
I thought, 'OK, Melissa Gilbert is playing my mom, and I'm playing her old role - no pressure.' So I went up to Melissa and said, 'It's such an honor playing your daughter,' and she smiled and said, 'Oh, shut up.' I thought, 'Great, a normal person.'
I have always found myself playing the hero, but I love villains. Villains have more fun.
Playing drums feels like coming home for me. Even during the White Stripes I thought: 'I'll do this for now, but I'm really a drummer.' That's what I'll put on my passport application.
The White Stripes

I learned the tricks of the tangeros, those intuitive tricks that helped me later on. I couldn't define them technically; they are forms of playing, forms of feeling; it's something that comes from inside, spontaneously.
I started playing the trumpet when I was about eight.
I was playing cricket first and my cricket coach was the one that introduced me to track and field.
'Oh, son, I wish you hadn’t become a scenario writer!' she sniffled.'Aw, now, Moms,' I comforted her, 'it’s no worse than playing the piano in a call house.'
