"It was such a struggle when I was first putting this band together, because right away it was chart readers. And God bless chart readers. I will never bemoan their playing. I've played with some of the most talented cats in the business. But I never wanted a chart reader. I wanted a Joe Perry. I wanted a Malcolm Young. I wanted somebody who was going to be onstage just rockin' balls as well as being a brilliant musician. And somebody who was willing to contribute. Sure the band bears my name, but I in no way ever wanted to be the band leader. I want guys that want to be a part of something, who want to create, and who want to work harder than the next guy for the crowd because I think entertainment is a lost art." - Louis Prima Jr. of clients Louis Prima Jr and the Witnesses
