… Wine, women and song. I don’t think I had any goal at all. All the others had goals. I was talking to that friend about this the other day. We just hung out, we played pool [laughs] … We read poetry. We read it like a plan; we wanted to understand what truly living was about. Poetry was sacred writing; the Law. One had to live according to the Law. But for us poetry was also related to drinking and picking up girls [laughs] … Montreal was ideal for that; with good hang-outs, some cafes where you could drink cheaply, bring your guitar and sing. To live the life that poems spoke of: freedom, love, those kinds of things.
