:evil: I am SO frustrated! I once researched a quote that goes something like, "Writing is easy. All you have to do is sit in front of a typewriter and open a vein." It was by "Red" somebody.
Now I see a quote "Writing is easy. All you have to do is sit in front of the paper and wait for drops of blood to form on your forehead", (or something like that).
PLEASE someone help me with the last name of the writer named Red who said the quote about opening a vein, and if possible, the dates of both of the quotes??
Thanks so much!!!

I know that the second quote is by Gene Fowler, but I don't have a date on that one, either.
Thanks again!

If I could stick my pen in my heart
And spill it all over the stage
Would it satisfy ya, would it slide on by ya
Would you think the boy is strange? Ain't he strange?
If I could win ya, if I could sing ya
A love song so divine
Would it be enough for your cheating heart
If I broke down and cried? If I cried?

I said I know it's only rock 'n roll but I like it
I know it's only rock 'n roll but I like it, like it, yes, I do
Oh, well, I like it, I like it, I like it
I said can't you see that this old boy has been a lonely?

If I could stick a knife in my heart
Suicide right on stage
Would it be enough for your teenage lust
Would it help to ease the pain? Ease your brain?

If I could dig down deep in my heart
Feelings would flood on the page
Would it satisfy ya, would it slide on by ya
Would ya think the boy's insane? He's insane

I said I know it's only rock 'n roll but I like it
I said I know it's only rock'n roll but I like it, like it, yes, I do
Oh, well, I like it, I like it, I like it
I said can't you see that this old boy has been a lonely?

And do ya think that you're the only girl around?
I bet you think that you're the only woman in town

I said I know it's only rock 'n roll but I like it
I said I know it's only rock 'n roll but I like it
I said I know it's only rock 'n roll but I like it, like it, yes, I do
Oh, well, I like it, I like it. I like it...

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards
