Controversial and inconsistent, that's what makes DB so brilliant as an interviewee. A different message for each interrogator. On the subject of being true to oneself and not imitating, a few years ago he was advocating imitating as a better option that developing a personal style. He said something like "if you copy someone else, you at least put your own stamp on whatever you are photographing whereas if you copy yourself, it can be disastrous".
Long may he reign over us (Not sure if that's copying something I may have heard elsewhere).

Very interesting, nice to know he still enjoys his art.
