A good mustache makes a man for many reasons.
If you look over the years, the styles have changed - the clothes, the hair, the production, the approach to the songs. The icing to the cake has changed flavors. But if you really look at the cake itself, it's really the same.
Sometimes, it's just great to bring new people into the mix.
My mustache has become this weird iconic representation of a certain era.
If I stopped touring tomorrow, it wouldn't change my life.
Having a mustache and never smiling became a permanent component of my persona through the quaintly self-important decade of the seventies.
I couldn't wait to grow a mustache. I stopped shaving my upper lip the day I graduated from high school.

The first record I bought myself could have been 'Oh Lonesome Me' by Don Gibson or 'Wake Up Little Susie' by the Everly Brothers.
