When I came back to my native country, after all the stories about Hitler, I couldn't ride in the front of the bus. I had to go to the back door. I couldn't live where I wanted. I wasn't invited to shake hands with Hitler, but I wasn't invited to the White House to shake hands with the President, either.
It took a lot of courage for him to befriend me in front of Hitler... You can melt down all the medals and cups I have and they wouldn't be a plating on the 24-karat friendship I felt for Lutz Long at that moment. Hitler must have gone crazy watching us embrace. The sad part of the story is I never saw Long again. He was killed in World War II.
I wanted no part of politics. And I wasn't in Berlin to compete against any one athlete. The purpose of the Olympics, anyway, was to do your best. As I'd learned long ago... the only victory that counts is the one over yourself.
Artigo I - Sei que há somente um Deus Vivente, Verdadeiro e Infinito, Criador e Mantenedor de todas as coisas visíveis e invisíveis, cuja Essência está difundida em todo Universo e cuja Mente e Consciência constituem a Alma do Homem.
O Guns nasceu inocentemente. Fundamos o grupo por amor à música e mantivemos essa mentalidade. Nunca deixamos a industria musical nos influenciar. No entanto, durante a turnê dos discos Use Your Illusion I e II, nosso relacionamento com Axl começou a ruir. Ele queria algo diferente da natureza da banda.
