What are your favorite quotes by any musician?
(inspiring, funny, retarded, what have you)

"A good song should make you want to tap your feet and get with your girl. A great song should destroy cop cars and set fire to the suburbs. I'm only interested in writing great songs."
-Tom Morello
We've dressed up in our best...

...and are prepared to go down like gentlemen.

"if we were going to put subliminal messages into our songs, we'd put 'buy more albums', not 'do it', trying to get our fans to commit suicide" - Rob Halford

That Morello quote is great. I lan't think of anything other than the cliche Hendrix quote "When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace."
I'm dancing in the moonlight
It's caught me in its spotlight

All Dave Mustaine-

*After being flashed by a girl*
"Aww, dont worry honey. Maybe if you water them, they'll grow."

"Playing acoustic guitar is like having sex with your clothes on. You can do it, but its a lot harder."

"I like Jazz, but I couldn't play it. You just sit there with a guitar the size of a chevy on your chest, playing the same solo for half an hour while wearing a silly hat."

*At a dickhead fan in the crowd*
"Look buddy, I don't know who you are. But we both know who I am, so shut the fuck up and let me play!

Theres a whole webpage of them somewhere.

"Having a drug addiction is like having sex with a gorilla. You don't stop until the gorilla stops."
-Dave Mustaine

"I've become Christian, but I still love blowjobs and I still say fuck a lot!"
-Dave Mustaine

"Practice makes perfect, but nobody's perfect, so why practice?"
-Billie Joe Armstrong

"(After playing the beginning of Welcome to the Jungle) No, that's not fucking Guns and Roses. I wrote that riff back in 1984 and they stole it from me." - Mikael Åkerfeldt

"I suck dick for crack money!" - Devin Townsend

"Ahoy mateys, we be pirates! Swab our fuckin' poop deck!" - Devin Townsend, while wearing a giant green hat

"Oh my god, look! A five stringed guitar!" - Devin Townsend, pointing at the bassist

"Actually, No I-I-I I have to tell you. Like I was saying, I actually like pop music occasionally. Like take Jimi Hendrix for instance. I mean, he was like half-pop star, half-freak... I only got the freak end of it, Not like Billy though! And not like Dave, of course, who's uhh who's hormones are just going crazy. Poor guy's 20 years old, stuck in the Steve Vai band.
Okay...Could you imagine, though, like if Jimi Hendrix was here and he had a, sorta of a little conversation with Brittany [Spears]...What do you think he would say? 'Baby, let's watch MTV from the bottom of the sea, Yea Ah-hoo!' "

I see all these guys now-a-days who are like the Michael Jordan of bass playing... I've always considered myself the Evil Knievil of bass playing. I just go 'out there'. In the early days all I hoped was to make a living out of what I did best. But, since there's no real market for masturbation I had to fall back on my bass playing abilities. -Les Claypool

You can't always write a chord ugly enough to say what you want to say, so sometimes you have to rely on a giraffe filled with whipped cream. -Frank Zappa

Mark Hoppus after watching Travis do a marching snare: "I can barely...barely, play my instrument."

Don't hurt me, but -

Joe Trohman - Fall Out Boy:
"I'm gonna regret this later, its the jew in me, saying "goddammit you spent money!"

"Look at my ****ing sink, its huge! You could wash two babies in there... and a duck."


Dave Grohl :
"I'd rather sound like a piece of **** and be able to do somethi' about it." (on linkin park playing to backing tracks live)

"People who work at Disneyland who walk around dressed up as Goofy, apparently, under no circumstances are they allowed to remove their outfits when they're in the parks. So you have these people in 80lb Goofy costumes, running around in 110 degree heat. Even if you happen to vomit, you're not allowed to remove your costume in front of the children because they'll freak out and won't believe that Goofy is a real animal. Once you're wearing those costumes, you're not even allowed a regular piss break. I guess you could just piss in your suit. But imagine if you're five years old and the first time you met Minnie Mouse she smelled of piss and vomit. "

"I love the development of our music, that's what I really dig about the whole thing. How we've tried to develop, y'know? It grows. That's why every day people come forward with new songs. Music goes on forever."

"Live the life you love and love the life you live."

"My music will go on forever. Maybe it's a fool say that, but when me know facts me can say facts. My music will go on forever."

"Better to die fighting for freedom then be a prisoner all the days of your life."


All by Bob Marley.
