 You ever notice John contradicts himself sometimes in interviews?  I love the man, but this is something I've noticed over the years. Most recently it is in regards to painting.  In recent interviews he states he has always been a painter, and came to NYC in the 70's to be a a painter, and accidently became a Rockstar. I have watched some interviews from the 90's where he says he took up painting "recently" because he was tired of being a rock star, and to keep him off the streets. My memory also has him taking up painting between Big Daddy and  the Whenever we wanted album.

Yes! I'm also sure there's an interview where he said he was going to be a dancer in New York!

The original story is better. There was a contest on loaves of bread wrappers and his buddy worked for the company. He won the contest to get the money to record his demo and then he went to New York. I guess he could ask us if he doesn't remember something because we do!
