You have four years to be irresponsible here. Relax. Work is for people with jobs. You`ll never remember class time, but you`ll remember time you wasted hanging out with your friends. So, stay out late. Go out on a Tuesday with your friends when you have a paper due Wednesday. Spend money you don`t have. Drink `til sunrise. The work never ends, but college does..."
The music business looks like, you know, innocent schoolboys compared to the TV business. They care about nothing but profit.
I`m barely prolific and incredibly lazy.
TV does not care about you or what happens to you. It`s downright bad for your health now, and that`s not a far-out concept. I think watching the TV news is bad for you. It is bad for your physical health and your mental health.
I don`t think it`s a good attitude in your life to feel that you have to be rich to have self-esteem.
I have turned down a lot of money for things that would have made me feel cheesy.
It`s very easy to be cynical about the hall of fame. But on the other hand, it`s really a beautiful thing for someone like me. I dedicated my entire life to this music.
It`s better to burn out, then to fade away.
You and I will meet again, When we`re least expecting it, One day in some far off place, I will recognize your face, I won`t say goodbye my friend, For you and I will meet again.
It`s funny how the music industry is enraged about the Internet and the way things are copied without being paid for. But you know why people steal the music? Because they can`t afford the music.
I think television`s become a downright dangerous thing. It has no moral barometer whatsoever. If you want to talk about something that is all about money, just watch the television.
We don`t really make bad records, though some people might like some more than others. And we have never really done a bad show. So I think in a way maybe we`ve been taken for granted.
Most things I worry about never happen anyway.
On Howie Epstein`s death: It`s like you got a tree dying in the backyard. And you`re kind of used to the idea that it`s dying. But you look out there one day and they cut it down. And you just can`t imagine that beautiful tree isn`t there anymore.
I`m not exactly a guy who makes new friends easily.
