I was part of a crowd for his video shoot for "Carry On Wayward Son" (what a crappy video that turned out to be). Anyway, there were only 30 people there so he played the song three times for footage reasons and we all stood in front of him so it made it seem like there were a lot of people there when we were just crowded into a 15 foot section.

Between each film set up he talked to the crowd a little bit. Don't remember much but do recall him slagging on Joe Satriani and how much he sucked(!!???!!). My issue was everyone there brought something with them, either a camera or something to sign. After the shoot was over he went backstage to hang out. If people wanted something to be signed, they had to hand it to a guy on stage who ran to the backroom, where he signed it there and then the guy brought it back to the person in the club. He refused to mingle in any way. I left without a signature and felt insulted.

Then I bought "The War To End All Wars" and I never gave him another dime after that.

You, me, or nobody is going to hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard you're hit, it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take and keep moving forward. THAT'S HOW WINNING IS DONE!!!
