Quotes[edit]

  • We never really cared about all the things that other people cared about, you know? Like, people recognizing me on the street never interested me. I've always been kind of suspicious of the world, anyway, so it's pretty easy for me to live in my own little world.
  • I don't want to know about my biggest idols. I don't want to read their autobiographies, I don't want to find out what they're really like.
  • I was able to afford a car that didn't break down every five minutes.
  • Actually I don't. I've never played with a bass player before, so I wouldn't even know. It wouldn't feel like it's missing, I just think it's normal … I prefer it that way so I only have to concentrate on Jack.
  • It's in this book I was reading. Apparently, there's a little red demon dwarf that haunts the city, and before every major bad thing that's happened, it's appeared to somebody. Last time, he appeared in a Cadillac.

  • We were like a moth right next to the flame. It's like, do any more and you go down. We were so tired. One final lap, and then have a rest.
