Thoughts, Vol. 1

•"Sympathy For The Devil" is the blueprint for Nick Cave's entire career. Particularly in his more recent incarnations, but essentially since he discovered the blues, Cave's yarns of rambling, bleated misanthropy have borne a strong resemblance to the persona Jagger inhabited on "Sympathy."

•Bruce Springsteen will die of a heart attack onstage; it's astonishing that he hasn't already.

•James Brown was a genius of non-sequitors. Two favorites:
"Sixteen of the American Presidents were black."

"I'm not going to be joining ZZ Top. You know they can't play my stuff. It's too complicated."
