My old man gave me rule to go by, when I was young — “you’ll find good people and you’ll find bad people, try an’ stick with the good people.” I tried to stick to that rule. It wasn’t until years later, that I looked back on it and realised there were all these different groups. It took me 20 years to catch on. I didn’t see the differences in people and the cliques they formed, I just took people as they came.
