"The only thing I worry about - and I'm really being sincere - is whether I'm being honest. If I had to lie to be successful, or had to pretend an interest in a subject or style of music that really didn't interest me, but my management or a market researcher had told me that would give me a lot of hit records, I'd fall flat on my face. It would terrify me."
