'I don’t like the word authority. I’ll say that it’s more about experience. I think people will respect you more following a certain amount of experience and — I don’t like this word either but I can’t think of a better synonym — success. People will end up respecting your opinion more. I like getting older because the more experience I have, the more valuable I feel like I am. I’m kind of a loud mouth; I will give you every opinion that I have and I’m pretty passionate about my opinions. I bring that experience and know-how, the technical knowledge, the musical knowledge, the business knowledge.'
