"I would just say 'Mom I love you, and I miss going to McDonald's with you.' Doesn't that sound silly? We just used to do that. She loved McDonald's."

"My mother was an ego booster. When I first started to play guitar, we went to Hollywood, and she bought me my first guitar."
"When I was born my dad said to my mom 'Meet your new best friend.'"
