Back then I didn't have a big organization around me. I was just a kid with a guitar traveling around. My responsibility basically was to the art and I had extra time on my hands. There is no extra time now. There isn't enough time.
I think no artist can claim to have any access to the truth or an authentic version of an event. But obviously they have slightly better means at their disposal because they have their art to energize whatever it is they're trying to write about. They have music.
I'm not dead and I don't have blue hair but some people say there are similarities. It is usually intolerable to watch myself onscreen but this time it's fine. I think it's beautiful and a real work of art.
