I recently did, for lack of a better word, a classical piece for the arts council in my home town [Staten Island, N.Y.]. It was like a suite, with orchestra, you know, with strings and oboe and piano. I wrote the music on a keyboard I got at Best Buy and a friend of mine scored it for me. I was at the concert, I took a bow, I was like Franz Liszt. I would do it again, if it’s a commission like that, because then you know it’s gonna get played.

-David Johansen (of The New York Dolls)

I read it here.
