Jack's Words of Wisdom

I'm proud to run a tight ship. When we came here, we had many problems; we were fighting to survive, so I used to say to the guys on the crew, 'Look.

When you run to get a lamp, you are doing yourself a favor, because, if we can't make budget, if we can't do these shows on time, we might as well fold our tents now and go home.'
