1[About using a thumb pick] "First of all I'm left-handed so I started learning how to play right-handed which to me is no big deal 'cause one hand has to catch up with the other anyway. But it took me about nine months before I could really play anything with any feel with my right hand. When I finally got to that point I started getting more serious about it and I started meeting other guitarists who all told me, 'Oh, you can't play rock 'n' roll with a thumb pick.' My attitude was that it had been nine months of hell for me to play anything that sounds like music - there was no way I was going to start over with a pick that I don't know anything about! And I still to this day can't play very well with a flatpick!"
