Tom Waits (1985): "They don't want you to sober up. Even though you've kept to your word that you'd write no more booze songs… You can't really, you know, be too concerned with what people really think of you, you just kinda have to pursue your own… you're on your own adventure of growth and discovery. Like Charles Bukowski said: 'people think I'm down on 5th and Main at the Blarneystone. throwin' back shooters and smokin' a cigar, but I'm on the top floor of the health club with a towel in my lap, watchin' Johnny Carson.' So I mean, it's not always good to be where they think you are, especially if you subscribe to it as well, which is easily done coz, y'know, you don't have to figure out who you are, you just ask somebody else… "
