I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.
I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music.
I wake up in the morning, I do a little stretching exercises, pick up the horn and play.
I was born with music inside me. Music was one of my parts. Like my ribs, my kidneys, my liver, my heart. Like my blood. It was a force already within me when I arrived on the scene. It was a necessity for me-like food or water.
I was growing up listening to Queen. Freddie Mercury threw those incredible melodies into his songs.
