Favorite quotes:

"My music is the spiritual expression of what I am. my faith; my knowledge, my being. When you begin to see the possibilities of music, you desire to do something really good for people, to help humanity free itself from it's hang-ups. I want to speak their souls." - John Coltrane

Recommended visual media:

Rudy - "one of the most inspiring movies of all time (probably shocking that it is not 'Spinal Tap')"
