(Concerning Boston, MA): It's not a big college town.


[Concerning his epitaph]: Here lies David St. Hubbins.... and why not?

We're very lucky in the band in that we have two visionaries - David and Nigel. They're like poets, like Shelley and Byron. They're two distinct types of visionaries; it's like fire and ice, basically. I feel my role in the band is to be somewhere in the middle of that, kind of like lukewarm water.

[when told their album cover was sexist] Well, what's wrong with being sexy?

It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

Peter "James" Bond (1949-1977) Cause of death: Spontaneous combustion

We've got armadillos in our trousers. It's really quite frightening.

That's not to say I haven't had my visionary moments. I've taken acid seventy five, seventy-six times.

Richard "Ric" Shrimpton (1948-?) Cause of death: No one knows what happened to Ric. None of the band members thought to ask each other. We've also heard that he sold his dialysis machine for drugs, and we assumed he died.

It's like space without the stars.

These go up to eleven.

Mick Shrimpton (1948-1982) Cause of death: On-stage explosion.

Oh. This piece is called Lick My Love-Pump.

Joe "Mama" Besser (19??-1983) Cause of death: Missing, presumed dead, or playing jazz.

You can't really dust for vomit.
