Jim Morrison? He's a drunken buffoon posing as a poet. C'mon, give me The Guess Who. They got the courage to be drunken buffoons, which makes them poetic.


Penny Lane: You're too sweet for rock and roll.
William Miller: Sweet? Where do you get off? Where do you get sweet? I am dark and mysterious, and I am PISSED OFF! I could be very dangerous to all of you! And you should know that about me... I am THE ENEMY!

William Miller: Do you have to be depressed to write a sad song? Do you have to be in love to write a love song? Is a song better when it really happened to you? Like "Love Thing," where did you write that and who was it about?
Russell Hammond: When did you get so professional?

Let's say all of the things we never said.

You know, I think we both wanted to, uh, to be with her. And she wanted us to be together.

You know, I always told her not to let too many guys fall in love with her. I guess I was wrong. One of them ended up saving her life.

I always tell the girls, never take it seriously. If you never take it seriously, you never get hurt. You never get hurt, you always have fun. And if you ever get lonely, you just go to the record store and visit your friends.

We are not Groupies. We are here because of the music, we inspire the music. We are Band Aids.

I get people off! And I find the one guy who isn't getting off, and I MAKE him get off. Actually, that you can print!

From here on out, I am only interested in what is real. Real people, real feelings, that's it, that's all I'm interested in.

Because they are trying to buy respectability for a form that is gloriously and righteously dumb. And you're smart enough to know that. And the day it ceases to be dumb is the day it ceases to be real. And then it just becomes an industry of... cool.
