"It (not talking to the media from 1974 through the end of his career)
was perfect for me at the time. It took me two years to make up my mind.
I was tired of getting slammed. To me it was a slap in the face. But it [his silence]
made me concentrate better. And the irony is that they wrote better without
access to my quotes. It's all quotes, anyway, and it all sounds the same to me.
After that they wrote better and more interesting stuff. I took it personal.
I got slammed quite a bit. To pick up the paper and read about yourself
getting slammed, that doesn't start your day off right."
