Mention Hubert Sumlin, as well, because Hubert's a great man, and again, you know, I don't play the guitar very good, but when I'm playing this kind of music, I always have him in my mind. I wish I could play like Hubert. Votes: 2Elvis Costello

You should have seen Willie Wells play shortstop: as good as Ozzie Smith and a better hitter.

Of course, if the evening goes well and you get the applause, then it's wonderful. Votes: 2Charles Dance
