"This was different. This was about living. It was the freedom of being in France and being treated as a human being, like someone important. Even the band and the music we played sounded better over there. Juliette was probably the first woman that I loved as an equal human being. She was a beautiful person. We had to communicate with each other through expressions and body language. She didn't speak English and I didn't speak French. We talked through our eyes, fingers, stuff like that. She was independent, her own thinker, and I liked that."
