Random Quote

"I mean everybody has been pulling from different directions. Being the future of rock 'n' roll before you've even made a record, I mean before you've had a chance to do anything -- it's as much of a curse as a blessing. People get very possessive about you, you're their duck that's going to lay their golden eggs. I'm there sayin': 'Let me make some records and then we'll talk about it, leave me alone.'" - Tom Petty
