We lived, until I was 12 or so, in communal apartment with five different families and the same kitchen, in two little - my brother and me and my parents. It was hell, but it was a common thing. My father was not general or admiral, but he was colonel. He was teaching in military academy military topography.

I have a great-great-great-grandfather who was a Confederate cavalry colonel, and I still have his military composite photo on my wall.

To some extent, the idea that rock 'n roll used to have this sort of free antediluvian identity, frolicking in the 1950s with Elvis or something, is totally wrong. It's insane.

Colonel, I do not care to die, but I pray to God I may never leave this field.
Winfield Scott Hancock
