I'm into the idea that there could be a God and aliens and reincarnation and some geezer years ago turning water into wine. I don't believe when you die, you die. All the beautiful people who have been and gone, Lennon, Hendrix, they're somewhere else, man. Whether it's here or whether it's there, they're doing some musical thingummyjig. They got to be somewhere else, haven't they? I'd like it if everyone were all right at the end of it."
