Mr. Bowie made a point of visiting Mr. Pop’s parents in Detroit, where they were living in a trailer. “He came to my parents’ trailer, and the neighbors were so frightened of the car and the bodyguard they called the police,” Mr. Pop said. “My father’s a very wonderful man, and he said, ‘Thank you for what you’re doing for my son.’ I thought: Shut up, Dad. You’re making me look uncool.”

“Haggard’s parents, James Francis and Flossie Mae, moved to California from their home in Checotah, Oklahoma, during the Great Depression, after their barn burned in 1934.”

Doesn’t it just SOUND like a country song?

“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.”

“The best lack all conviction, while the best are filled…oh, no. It’s the other way around. The best lack all conviction, and the worst are filled with a passionate intensity. Now you figure out where I am.”

– Lou Reed, doing his best to try to quote Yeats.

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”
