"On the surface, rock and roll changes at an amazing pace. The influence of a figure like the Maharishi can appear and disappear in a matter of months. Talk about old fashioned rock and roll finds itself dead before it begins."
"The problem for me, still today, is that I write purely with one dramatic structure and that is the rite of passage. I'm not really skilled in any other. Rock and roll itself can be described as music to accompany the rite of passage."
"I'm not in the leftist controlled Rock and Roll Hall of Fame because of my political views, primarily my lifelong militant support of the NRA, the Second Amendment, and my belief that the only good bad guy is a dead bad guy."
"If you don't know the blues... there's no point in picking up the guitar and playing rock and roll or any other form of popular music."
"My mom passed away a day before high school started, and her dream was for me to be a full rock and roll guy, and play drums in a band."
"My dad is a huge rock and roll lead guitar fan. I didn't even really know that until recently. Everything has to have a guitar solo in it."
"I did the whole rock and roll thing that's coming up. I think you're going to enjoy that! 'Burt Rocks', it's called. I like that he's a dreamer I like how positive he is. There's a lot of things I think I can learn from Burt."
"If your album sells, that's cool, more people find out about you, more people get turned on to what we're really about-which is a live rock and roll band."
"A more important reason is that the bands will intuitively trust someone they think is a peer, and who speaks fondly of the same formative rock and roll experiences."
"There's a hell of a lot of freedom in this rock and roll circus... it's where all the freaks go - it's the environment for me."
