There were cruel comedians. Like I learned the guitar cause I played this guy and there were a couple of songs were he played the guitar. And I would just kill myself to learn the songs and make the guys happy and everything. And all along they knew they didn’t want me to play the guitar. They just liked that look on my face. Meanwhile my fingers were bleeding so; they didn’t really want me to play.
