Well, I'm sure I'd feel much worse if I weren't under such heavy sedation.


[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.

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

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

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

These go up to eleven.

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

It's like space without the stars.

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

They died. Nice person, really... He's dead, you know... Yeah, he died...

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

You can't really dust for vomit.

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.

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