Lots of things I wish hadn't happened - but everybody looks to keep his own precious hair. You drop the cat in boiling water he's going to claw his way out or cook. I didn't never intend to cook. So I clawed. I don't make no apology for it. You'd have done the same. But what happened with the girl…
