    "These gigs were all before 'Who's Sorry Now?' was released. I remember one time having to do as many as eight shows all in one week-end for the whopping pay of $150 -- where was I gonna spend it all? I also remember I had to type up these contracts myself because my manager couldn't afford his own secretary at the time!"
