[Los Angeles, 1969] Let’s just say I was testing the bounds of reality. I was curious to see what would happen. That’s all it was: just curiosity.

[Dinner Key Auditorium, 3/1/69, the infamous concert where he allegedly exposed himself] We are not talking about no revolution! I’m not talking about no demonstration! I’m talking about having some fun! I’m talking about dancing! I’m talking about love your neighbor ’til it hurts! I’m talking about love! […] This is your show, anything you want goes!

I’ve always been attracted to ideas that were about revolt against authority. When you make peace with authority, you become an authority.
Music is a pure expression of joy.
