I started getting some money from doing shows, going to Tennessee, and into small towns. $4,000, $1,500. The first car I bought was a Corvette.
How much did it cost?
60 bands. $60,000.
When did you buy it?

Yellow. I always had yellow cars from day one. I feel like if it’s yellow, and it’s a sports car, it’ll attract a lot of attention.
