I've lived in a few cheap hotels. One of them became infested with bed bugs. I had nowhere to go, and no money to get there, so I had to sleep with the bed bugs for three nights.
The only way to survive was to turn the ancient air conditioner in the window on as cold as it could go, bed bugs remain dormant at very low temperatures. In the morning the air conditioner would be covered in ice, my lungs full of fluid, my body only bitten and sucked of blood in a handful of places.
I come across as a well mannered middle class fellow. People often feel compelled to give me advice, tell me I have to pay my dues if I want to get ahead in the music business. I can only laugh.
