Had all of King Arthur’s knights, and they were all on the quest for the Holy Grail. And I remember looking at this picture of Sir Galahad, and, and, and he was kneeling, and — and light streaming over his face, and I remember thinking: I could never go on a quest like that. Because I’m not clean. I mean, I was just a little kid. You think … maybe I knew? I mean, deep down, that — I had… demon blood in me, and about the evil of it, and that I’m — wasn’t pure?”
