Ike: I did a lot of wrong things in my life, and a lot of good things, and I don't regret any of them. The only regret I have -- I made one mistake in my life, during the time I was doing drugs -- I signed a contract with Walt Disney (makers of What's Love Got to Do With It) giving them permission to portray me in this movie any way they wanted, not realizing I was signing away my right to sue them. They totally exaggerated everything she said in the book on the screen, and that sabotaged my career.

Ike: I got a job driving the elevator in the Alcazar and the radio station was on the second floor. It was very exciting to me, a radio station. I'd run up to the second floor and look through the window at the guy spinning records. He saw me and tole me to come in and showed me how to 'hold a record.' I'd sit there and hold it until the one playing stopped, then I'd turn a knob and the one I was holding would play. Next thing I know, he was going across the street for coffee and leaving me in there alone. I was only eight. That was the beginning of my thing with music.
Ike: One of two things happen when you hit a woman. Either she heads for the door or she's all yours.
