You can get through anything if you want it bad enough.

Through recovery, I've been able to do so much good stuff.

What's scummy about the music industry is that everybody loves you when you're dead.

The thing is that I've known the guys from Motley Crue longer than just about everybody.

Every day, I wake up, and the first thing I think of is my kids.

I do believe that when I'm writing music, I get addicted to the music of the concept of what the outcome of the song is, or the passion behind the lyrics.

I listen to NPR a lot. I love that.

Los Angeles has been my home since the days even before Motley Crue, so I am beyond excited that 'The Side Show' has found a home on 98.7 FM. This is the station I listen to - my friends listen to it, my family listens to it. It's the station I wanted to be on, and I'm psyched to get started.

I think that music is a lifestyle that you sort of intravenously plug into and unplug from when you do and don't need it. Some people live it 10 hours a day, some on weekends. It's no more important or non-important than that.

My studio, nicknamed 'Funny Farm,' is in a hidden location. It's very private. Not only do I create my photography there, but it is also where I write my books and create music.

I never understood bands saying Nirvana had anything to do with derailing their career. Maybe those bands didn't have the goods.

It's interesting. People go to an animal shelter and pick a dog that's been kicked, beaten, and has lost a leg and an eye, and they'll take that dog home and give it love and support, but they don't do that with people.

People say I have a distorted lens. I think I see things as they really are.

Some cats, Iggy Pop, they're going to always have that hunger.

In '85, I went through rehab and I wasn't ready. If you're not ready, you're not ready. You don't want to hear the truth, and you're gonna keep doing what you keep doing.

I'm not religious, but by nature I am spiritual. I'm an artist, and creativity seems to go hand in hand with spirituality. But I have a knee-jerk reaction against organized religions. Actually, I have knee-jerk reactions against anything that's organized.

When you have so many things, and you have no idea why, you think, 'Maybe I'm supposed to do things for other people.'

I don't really care what people do.

If you don't deal with your demons, they will deal with you, and it's gonna hurt.

What inspires me? I am so inspired every day. I am inspired by thinkers. I am inspired by rebellion. I am inspired by children. I have been inspired by love.

There's nothing unique about me as a parent. I am a parent. My kids are kids. We do the best we can do.

Hey, man, I like to look good; I wear make-up.

If I'm watching my favorite boxer, and he's just won the heavyweight championship of the world, and he retires, it kind of makes the guy a legend.

I just love doing radio. I've learned to be more vulnerable through radio than even I've been through books and writing lyrics. It's a different type of experience where, if I'm writing a lyric, I can sort of hide behind it a little bit.

How can you have a rock n' roll circus without a midget?

When it comes to putting together a new show, we always push the envelope, and that's part of Motley Crue's legacy.

What can I say that will make people that are in recovery want to stand up and support Recovery Month? A friend of mine said, 'You know, the fact that you did a really honest book and it changed people's lives, that's something to talk about.'

I love women. My life revolves around them.

You get clarity as you get sober, and you get clarity as you get older.

One thing I've always loved doing is hanging out and talking music with other artists.

You don't base records on success; you base it on creativity.

There's a sound with Motley Crue, and it comes with Vince's voice, which is such an important part of the show, and Mick's guitar. And the way Tommy and me play together is an important part of it.

I know some people who've gotten tattoos that they probably shouldn't have, like the name of somebody they were dating, and that never ends well.

I'm a sponge for information.

I love those Keith Richards solo records, but it's not the Rolling Stones.

I think - I honestly think that my story is not 100 percent that unique. I think that I'm - just the whole rock star part kind of throws an interesting twist on it.

I don't know if I believe in life after death so much as I believe that there is something out there.

I know when I wear a Led Zeppelin shirt, I am happy to put that Led Zeppelin shirt on. It's not, 'Well, they kind of suck.'

My main camera is a Nikon D3. I use a French camera from the 1800s for wet plate photography, I use a Hasselblad sometimes. But to me the camera really doesn't matter that much. I don't have a preference for film or digital.

I remember Iggy and the Stooges' song 'Search and Destroy' reaching out from my speakers to me like my own personal anthem.

It's hard to find vehicles for your music.

We all fall off the wagon. It's only one day; it's not the rest of your life. Pick yourself up and go again.

Nothing that Robert Plant does will ever equal Led Zeppelin, but that doesn't mean he's going to stop being creative. Jimmy Page has so many incredibly cool projects, but it's not Led Zeppelin; there will only ever be one Led Zeppelin.

We did something this year that was not based on animosity.

Sometimes when people can't speak English, they hum the melody instead of singing along. Having 20,000 people humming your song is incredible.

In the end, the whole Internet thing kills me, because you can use it as a positive thing or you can read into all the negativity. And I think you've gotta put out positive energy, put out cool viral stuff, and then just stay out of people's opinions.

You have to age gracefully. And that's what I love about Keith Richards. That's what I love about the Rolling Stones. They are aging gracefully. They are falling apart at the seams right before our eyes, and they are doing it gracefully. And that's the most beautiful thing that we can do.

We each have our own tour bus. We've never done that before.

My mom, you know, took off when I was about 6. What ended up happening is I ended up being with my grandparents.
