Bobby Bare

Gene Guerrero, The Great Speckled Bird, 5 April 1971

"It's a funny thing. I'd probably sold two or three millions for RCA before I realized that you got paid for it. Fact is, I didn't even have a car. My manager said, 'Hey, why don't you get a car?' I was still bumming around. I said, 'Hell, I'm afraid if I get a car I'll lose my animal cunning,' because I was always trying to figure out a way to get some place."
