Best Quotes

  • Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.
  • Music, in performance, is a type of sculpture. The air in the performance is sculpted into something.
  • No change in musical style will survive unless it is accompanied by a change in clothing style. Rock is to dress up to.
  • The manner in which Americans consume music has a lot to do with leaving it on their coffee tables, or using it as wallpaper for their lifestyles, like the score of a movie --it's consumed that way without any regard for how and why it's made.
  • There are more love songs than anything else. If songs could make you do something we'd all love one another.
  • I think pop music has done more for oral intercourse than anything else that has ever happened, and vice versa.
  • Most rock journalism is people who can't write, interviewing people who can't talk, for people who can't read.
  • Do we really want to know how Michael Jackson makes his music? No. We want to understand why he needs the bones of the Elephant Man -- and, until he tells us, it doesn't make too much difference whether or not he really is bad.
  • A drug is neither moral nor immoral -- it's a chemical compound. The compound itself is not a menace to society until a human being treats it as if consumption bestowed a temporary license to act like an asshole.
  • Rock journalism is people who can't write talking to people who can't talk for people who can't read.
