“Me, Lemmy, Rod Stewart, we’re in another medium where the singing is rough, and there’s nothing wrong with rough singing. People must like it; it must have a message of soul in it. Who can way what singing is? People understand that you’re out there, and you’re going to come back with some strange murmuring or whimpering from where you’ve been in your thoughts.
That’s what singing is. You’re relating some emotional experiences you had…that you shouldn’t have had if you wanted to retain your sanity. With singing you don’t have to think about it.” -Joe
