I was wondering, what are some good quotes said by famous guitarists??

I'm writing a reflective essay on guitar, and want to start it out with a quote, and I don't really know any quotes. So I thought I'd ask the pit.

Edit: Thanks for the help, we should just turn this into, your favorite guitar quotes thread.

Yeah, it's Wikiqouted:

[Dave] Grohl interview with Perez Hilton about VMA's and Britney Spears:

Perez: Are you drunk right now?
Grohl: No, I gotta play.
Perez: Britney Spears has been getting wasted all the time, hasn't stopped her.
Grohl: Yeah, but she doesn't have to sing live.

People ask me, 'God, you must be exhausted. You guys work so hard.' I'm like, 'Do you know what working is? I used to work in a furniture warehouse. That seems like work to me. Coming here and talking to you on a television show, that's like, that ain't work. I might not have slept last night but, ****, this is great.'

____

The other night I was in New York and I made a diner reservation in my name. I showed up with my girlfriend and they asked who I was, so I said, "Dave Grohl." And they said, 'Oh, we thought you said David Groh,' who was in this ****ing American TV show called Rhoda in the Eighties. So no, I'm afraid my name doesn't have too much pull at all.

Noel Gallagher
"I'm going to get drunk and insult as many [musicians] from the '80s as is humanly possible"

"Wow, what an afternoon! Of all the NME awards this one has certainly been the most... recent."

___

"Someone told me 'Supersonic' was about teenage prostitution. ****. It's about a nine-stone Rottweiler called Elsa who was in the studio where we were recording."

___

"We just believe we're the best band in the world. We're not arrogant, that's just a fact."

___

Dani Behr: Do you [and Liam] still have physical fights?
Noel: No. The last time was in March or May and we haven't done since because...
Dani Behr: Who won?
Noel: I did. He claims it's because he was drunk, but I claimed I had won because I had a cricket bat in my hand.

___

Frank Skinner: "You're probably one of the most down to earth rock stars I know... but you do wear shades when the sun's not shining"
Gallagher: "Well it's in the manual isn't it. It actually says in the rock star book 'Thou shalt wear shades at all times, preferably indoors'"
