Random Quote

"I like those old cheap rock songs. I really do, as much as I like 'Born to Run,' you know, but I just had this theory that if it's a good song, whatever that is, it will endure. I think any songwriter that stands up and plays the guitar and really thinks that he's changing the world and singing to millions needs a tomato in the face."
