“Also worth noting that the Germs’ original name,”Sophistifuck and the Revlon Spam Queens,” had to be changed because they couldn’t afford to put that many letters on a T-shirt.”

how the 60s went down, and the right guys won

I think music sort of died at Woodstock

I went home and stood in front of the mirror with the guitar and played, ya know, surf songs and stuff. I thought, “I can do this.” I was a rock star in ’67.

All of the people who threw beer cans at me had long hair now; they were rednecks on acid

“It said the songs were too fast and too short, too simple; they had stupid lyrics; no guitar solos; no Eagles, no Doobie Brothers, no anything. I said, ‘That sounds good to me!’

“I’ve gotten a lot of session work lately for local bands doing X covers because there’s at least one chord in every X song that nobody can figure out”
