‘Con Air’ was kind of a turning point for me, in my mind. I never shot anybody in that movie – I never did anything bad – because there were so many bad guys in that movie. I said, ‘The hell with this, I’m just gonna be a lovable guy.’ I’m like Steve McQueen in ‘The Great Escape.’

Everybody’s under God’s planet, and God is the Almighty, the Beginning, the End, the Alpha, the Omega. He’s Big Daddy. He gives out these little soldiers and sons and angels and saints to help everybody else get through to him. I’m not the ‘Jesus-only or you’re going to Hell’ kind of guy.
God will roast their stomachs in hell at the hands of Iraqis.
No one likes to be criticized, of course, but if the things we successfully strive for do not make our future selves happy, or if the things we unsuccessfully avoid do, then it seems reasonable (if somewhat ungracious) for them to cast a disparaging glance backward and wonder what the hell we were thinking.

When I was younger, I liked money – the feel of it. I would sit with my dad and count his coins and be like, ‘Yeah.’ I’d saved £700 by the age of 10. I thought: ‘What the hell am I hoarding this for?’ So I bought a drum kit.

My version, of course, is not this flag-waving, let’s all get on the Jesus train and ride out of hell. I’m not that kind of guy. It’s an embrace that life is good, worth living and yeah, it’s not easy, but there are more pluses than minuses.
I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation. War is hell.
I saw ‘Taxi Driver,’ and ‘Taxi Driver’ kind of saved my life. The scene where Robert De Niro is looking at himself in the mirror saying, ‘You talkin’ to me? You talkin’ to me? Who the hell else are you talkin’ to?’ That’s the scene that changed my life by changing my attitude about acting.
The Clinton administration launched an attack on people in Texas because those people were religious nuts with guns. Hell, this country was founded by religious nuts with guns. Who does Bill Clinton think stepped ashore on Plymouth Rock?

And it still rocks every night! It’s so fun to do.

I’m not afraid of death. What’s to fear? Once you’re dead, that’s it. Nothing. I don’t believe in heaven or hell. That’s baloney. What matters is the here and now. Yes, I’m 88, and there are things I can’t do: I can’t run a race or climb Everest. But isn’t life magnificent?
Hell is nothing else but nature departed or excluded from the beam of divine light.

People think I have an interesting walk. Hell, I’m just trying to hold my gut in.

Like most playwrights, I hate talkbacks with a passion that can burn a hole through hell.

At college age, you can tell who is best at taking tests and going to school, but you can’t tell who the best people are. That worries the hell out of me.
Plot is just not my gift. I’m fascinated with complex characters, and that doesn’t mix well with complex plots. And by the way, when the plot is simple, you can move one piece around and make it feel fresh. Hell or High Water’s a good example: I don’t tell you why the brothers are robbing the bank.
In this world, with thy earthly life, thou art under heaven, stars, and elements, also under hell and devils; all ruleth in thee, and over thee.

If you look at how people use the term ‘western,’ you can only conclude that it means a movie that has big hats and horses. And if you really want to sound like you’ve been thinking, then you’ll use a term like ‘genre.’ But all the hell it seems to mean is big hats and horses. Which is not all that deeply analytical.
‘Tis not where we lie, but whence we fell; the loss of heaven’s the greatest pain in hell.

The pain comes from knowing that we have never been safe, and therefore will never be safe again. It comes from knowing we can never be so ignorant again. It comes from knowing we can never be children again. Losing innocence. Remembering heaven. That was the essence of hell.

What is this some weird club that we’re in?’
In ‘Hell Ride,’ I play a biker – it’s about the bikers. It’s with Dennis Hopper and Michael Madsen, Larry Bishop and myself. We’re bikers, and I play Billy Wings; I’ve got all sorts of wings, and you have to watch the movie to find out what the wings are about.
In The Touch, the love scenes are the same as they were in The Thorn Birds or anything else I’ve ever written. I find a way of saying that either it was heaven or hell but in a way that still leaves room for the reader to use their own imagination.
When I was starting out, I didn’t know what the hell I was doing and my person who was helping me out, I didn’t even have an agent, got me five or six big auditions for leads in movies in 1986 that I had no business auditioning for. I think I ran out of three of them before I’d even finished.

Most English writers are not interested in change but in the social novel. That demands a static backdrop. I’m intensely interested in change – probably as a matter of self-preservation. What the hell is going to happen next?
‘Hell Freezes Over’ happened, and the Eagles decided to get back to work. We’ve toured pretty much since then, and I’ve been around the world a couple times. I had never really gotten any momentum going in a solo project during that period of time – Eagles was pretty much a full time job.

In high school, we would give away rulers to our friends that said, ‘Jesus loves you.’ I couldn’t put together the concept that Jesus loves you, but if you don’t love him back, you’ll burn in hell forever. I worried, ‘I’m rejecting the Holy Spirit, so I’m definitely going to burn in hell.’
For people like me, books are something solid and real, whereas digital stuff is a bit more ethereal. I like the trophy on my shelf, the presence in my home. A nice book is just as valuable as a decoration as a beautiful porcelain urn – and, let’s face it, a hell of a lot more useful.

I was roundly criticized for being in and around rock & roll music at its inception. It was the devil’s music: it would make your teeth fall out and your hair turn blue, whatever the hell. You get through that.
I started riding the whole ‘fluffy’ train, and it’s a cute word and socially a lot more acceptable than someone saying is fat or obese. If you call a girl ‘fat,’ yo, she’ll raise hell, but if you say, ‘Aw girl, look at you, you’re fluffy,’ there’s almost a sexy appeal to it.

There’s a ton of stuff in mythology and folklore that is loaded with wonderful creatures that I haven’t drawn yet, but that’s kind of my retirement plan. Theoretically, I won’t be doing comics any longer, and I’ll just be drawing and painting whatever the hell I want. Most of that will be monsters.
In L.A., you work like hell because there is nothing else to do, unless you’re cheating on your wife.
I went to a Steiner School, which is very small and nurturing and creative, so I felt like I was in an environment where I could mature.

Growing up under the heavy hand of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, it was drummed into me that attending weekly mass was not an option. It was a must to avoid eternal damnation, which was not a prospect filled with many positives. Hell fire was perpetual, and no parole would be offered.

It’s a good idea to have friends both in Heaven and in Hell.

The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis.

Before I play matches I’m always switching myself on. That’s why I have that walk-on music – Two Steps From Hell – they produce really good motivational gladiator-style music. As soon as that music comes on I’m switched on and I’m ready for a brawl!
I am the epitome of a walking contradiction for various reasons, only one of which being that I feel my existence is of heaven and hell.
