"Luck is when preparation meets opportunity . . . " --Jake Busey in DETOUR, November 1996.

"I had a really good foundation growing up. My Mom was more like a friend, very supportive and very together, while my Dad was the artist, traveling the world, and always taking on these new characters that he would inhabit, or that would inhabit him. I learned my creative focus from my Dad, but got my stability from my Mom . . . I never had anyone tell me 'Why don't you get a real job?'" --Jake Busey in DETOUR, November 1996

"I don't care whether I live up to my father or not. This is something I want to do."--Jake Busey in US, January 1995.

"I grew up in a world of drugs. Every adult around me was heavily addicted to one controlled substance or another. But because of that, I have no interest in drugs at all. I have to be in control of my mind, you know?" --Jake Busey in US, January 1995
