    Well...mines a bit more serious:

    Billy Joel, on Rock 'n Roll (Elvis)- "They (parents) thought that we would see those hips, and listen to that music, and become really wild and promiscuous...and they were right!"
     
  6. Can I ask a relevant question at this juncture ?.......Are we gonna do Stonehenge tomorrow ?

    Zappa was full of them:

    "Rock journalism is people who can't write, interviewing people who can't talk, for people who can't read..."

    "Writing about music is like dancing about architecture"

    I could go on and on....
     
  9. I thought Eno said that.

    answered..."The money your mother gave you for singing lessons!" :)

    Kirk Hammett "I didn't snort it, I just sniffed it."


    James Hetfield "It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye, then it's fun and games you can't see."
     
  15. Well, it's not Rock (or even music), but the Welsh footballer (that's the sport where you use your feet, not the weird American one where you throw it) once said "It's like playing in a different country"...about playing in Italy!

    Also, I like Dan Quayle's one:

    "The republican party has been accused of turning it's back on the poor. It's the other way around - they never vote for us"!!

  19. This isn't verbatim but when Dave Mustaine was talking about Metallica's early days, he said something like:
