You know, people can't fall in love with me just because I'm good at what I do.
It's sort of a feeling of power onstage. It's really the ability to make people smile, or just to turn them one way or another for that duration of time, and for it to have some effect later on. I don't really think it's power... it's the goodness.
People say that I'm a millionaire, but that's not true - I only spend millions.
I like the idea of being alone. I like the idea of often being alone in all aspects of my life. I like to feel lonely. I like to need things.

I realized what Led Zeppelin was about around the end of our first U.S. tour. We started off not even on the bill in Denver, and by the time we got to New York we were second to Iron Butterfly, and they didn't want to go on!
I can't moan about any of it. I had a great time in the goldfish bowl.
I think I could sing and shear a few sheep at the same time.
I think that passion and love and pain are all bearable, and they go to make love beautiful.
I think I could continue forever as this sort of Peter Pan whizzing around, but I realize that the value of my time is of huge, huge importance. And I had to reconvene with everything that I'd taken for granted previously.
Old men do it better. We're not so sensitive in certain areas.
You can't give up something you really believe in for financial reasons. If you die by the roadside - so be it. But at least you know you've tried. Ten minutes in the music scene was the equal of one hundred years outside of it.
My vocal style I haven't tried to copy from anyone. It just developed until it became the girlish whine it is today.
