The LOST HIGHWAY star compares his devotion to Davis' album BITCHES BREW to his cocaine addiction and believes that he owes his prolific comic career to Bruce.
The 64-year-old says, "I never heard anything like Lenny Bruce before and I remember thinking, 'If this is comedy, then what the f*** am I doing?' So I played his record over and over, every night
"It was him who said comedy wasn't about telling jokes - it was about telling the truth."
He added that unlike cocaine, Bitches Brew was a great thing to be hooked on: "I fell in love with the pipe and it controlled my very being. That motherf***er say, 'Don't answer the phone, we have some smoking to do."21/05/2004 17:17
