"Nazi Germany is my subject; I'm an expert, especially on the Waffen SS. I could tell you some weird stuff. Bad guys are always more interesting." (1991)
"People are weird, aren't they? They'll say anything. You should never, ever listen about anybody from anybody else except themselves, 'cos you don't know. People will say any fuckin' thing. They say that I was a Nazi. It's really weird. There are very few people on Earth less Nazi than me. I've got three girlfriends in LA and they're all black. If they can get along with what I've got in my house, you ain't got nothing to talk about at all. My manager's half Jewish and half Italian, so that takes care of that. There's no way that someone who writes a song like 1916 is a Nazi" (1996)
"No I'm not a Nazi. I have two black girlfriends in this city, so I must be the worst Nazi you ever came across. Half my Jewish friends and black friends can go to my apartment and not be bothered by it. What's the problem with the Nazi thing? The Nazis are gone. Gone. The only reason they ever made it was Hitler. The day after he shot himself they sued for peace. It was just him. Nothing else. There wasn't an ideology that lasts for a thousand years, as has been proved. People have tried to start it up again all over the world and it's not worked" (2000)
" I'll explain it in an unusual way for you, right? An SS honour dagger, if you could find one these days, is worth $200,000. This is not your material that skinheads would buy, right? This is doctors and dentists. It is now antique-material from an age that has gone by and will never rise again, because the whole thing behind the Nazi party is that without Hitler there is nothing. I am the furthest thing from a Nazi you could imagine. I have no racial prejudice whatsoever. Show up at a Nuremberg rally, and I don't think Hitler would be shaking my hand"
