Band quotes by Ozzy Osbourne
#1. 'And what about a [band] name?' said Tony [Iommi]. The three of us looked at each other.
'We should all take a couple of days to think about it,' I said. 'I dunno about you two, but I've got a special place where I go to get ideas for important stuff like this. It's never failed me yet.'

Forty-eight hours later I blurted out: 'I've got it!'
'Must have been that dodgy bird you poked the other night,' said Geezer. 'Has your whelk turned green yet?'
Tony and Bill snickered into their plates of egg and chips. We were sitting in a greasy spoon caff in Aston. So far, everyone was getting along famously.
'Very funny, Geezer,' I said, waving an eggy fork at him. 'I mean the name for our band.'
The snickering died down.
'Go on then,' said Tony [Iommi].
'Well, I was on the shitter last night, and...'
'That's your special place?' spluttered Bill, blobs of mushed-up egg and HP sauce flying out of his mouth.
'Where the f**k did you think it was, Bill?' I said. 'The hanging gardens of f**king Babylon? #Quote by Ozzy Osbourne
Band quotes by Al Yankovic
#2. It was difficult to get into my friends' rock bands when I was a teenager. They somehow didn't see the need for an accordion player. That's when I realized that I had to find my own path in life. #Quote by Al Yankovic
Band quotes by Chris Isaak
#3. I don't know what people think in making record is like. But basically, I got a bunch of spaghetti and spaghetti sauce, and the whole band was staying at my house and we had a ball. #Quote by Chris Isaak
Band quotes by Max Bemis
#4. I used to download a lot of music, and I understand it in this economy, but personally I buy my music. It feels good to be able to support a band you like. Plus, it'd be really hypocritical if I were still doing that, since I really hope people are buying and experiencing my music. #Quote by Max Bemis
Band quotes by Tom Araya
#5. To fans in a festival setting it's like a picnic. You want to have a good time with your friends in that crowd. And in the background you hear the band play, 'Oh, that's my favorite song!' everyone is there to enjoy the afternoon and that's about it. #Quote by Tom Araya
Band quotes by G. Norman Lippert
#6. Thought you were making a James Band Joke. Hard to tell with that accent #Quote by G. Norman Lippert
Band quotes by Jose N Harris
#7. We showed up.
We stood up.
We stepped forward.
We raised our right hands.
We mailed our letters home.
We shuffled, then stood in the door.
We jumped.
We walked through the fire.
We did not dodge.
We did not evade.
... We did not run.
We did not hide.
We did not leave a friend behind.
We have nothing to prove.
We have no stories to tell.
We have no one to convince.
Those who matter, already know.
Those who don't, never will.
We few.
We Band of Brothers.
We Moatengators... #Quote by Jose N Harris
Band quotes by Gayle Forman
#8. If you stay, I'll do whatever you want. I'll quit the band, go with you to New York. But if you need me to go away, I'll do that, too. I was talking to Liz and she said maybe coming back to your old life would be too painful, that maybe it'd be easier for you to erase us. And that would suck, but I'd do it. I can lose you like that if I don't lose you today. I'll let you go. If you stay. #Quote by Gayle Forman
Band quotes by Adam Rich
#9. A lot of big labels will just sign bands like a write off. #Quote by Adam Rich
Band quotes by Meg White
#10. I met Drew Barrymore in New York and she said she liked the band. That was really cool. I grew up on her. #Quote by Meg White
Band quotes by Gary Kemp
#11. For 24 hours a day, for 10 years, all I thought about was being in a band. That's all I did. I had no other social life. I don't want my life to be like that now. I've spent the past 10 years having a real life as well. But Spandau Ballet is such a difficult shadow to outrun. #Quote by Gary Kemp
Band quotes by Julian Casablancas
#12. But it can be hard to experiment when you're in a band. #Quote by Julian Casablancas
Band quotes by Billy Bragg
#13. I was in a little punk band and we put out a few punk records that weren't very political, at all. #Quote by Billy Bragg
Band quotes by Billy Corgan
#14. Smashing Pumpkins has never been a band about hit songs. #Quote by Billy Corgan
Band quotes by Robert Smith
#15. I never answer if someone knocks on my door and only the band and my manager have my phone number. In any case my phone doesn't ring so I never notice it. I occasionally just walk past and pick it up to see if anyone's there. #Quote by Robert Smith
Band quotes by Steve Erickson
#16. In their matching candy-stripe shirts, the Beach Boys were America's biggest band of the early '60s, transmitting utopian bulletins of summer without end to a cold and overcast nation. #Quote by Steve Erickson
Band quotes by Lauren Mayberry
#17. I have a personal Twitter for band purposes, but I don't use social media a lot. I fall in a weird age gap. I was on band message boards when I was 16, but I was on the early curve of Facebook. I did it for work when I worked in media, and I did it for the band, but I can't relate to the idea that you live your life online. #Quote by Lauren Mayberry
Band quotes by Chris Cornell
#18. Due to irresolvable personality conflicts as well as musical differences, I am permanently leaving the band Audioslave. I wish the other three members nothing but the best in all of their future endeavours. #Quote by Chris Cornell
Band quotes by Eugene Mirman
#19. I don't know what it would be like to actually play guitar. I've toured with a lot of comedians and it's never been like it is for a rock band. #Quote by Eugene Mirman
Band quotes by Gary Cherone
#20. Dave thought he was bigger than Van Halen the band. So there was this catfight going on for 10 years. #Quote by Gary Cherone
Band quotes by Sammy Roy
#21. Bullys are just being mean because they are just jelous of you and they have nothing better to do. so if you someone that is getting bullyed go see an groun up, and stand up for your self. Dont let anyone tell you that you cant stand up for you self because your too small, to weak, or anythink like that. so band bullying from all schools, and out of school. And keep your head high and sick through it. you will get throught it, i promess." =) #Quote by Sammy Roy
Band quotes by Robert Wyatt
#22. I really liked them, not just Syd, but all of them. Roger was very important, I thought, his contribution. And so was Rick's organ playing. It was a good band. It became something else completely, obviously. #Quote by Robert Wyatt
Band quotes by Ian McClellan
#23. I continued toward Atlanta with a Merle Haggard C.D. playing on the stereo. They weren't great hosts, but those guys in The Ted Kaczynski Fan Club had great taste in music. It was all classic country music- none of that sissy, boy-band country that they played on the radio all the time. I drove down the road while Merle preferred to just stay where he was and drink. #Quote by Ian McClellan
Band quotes by Elizabeth Acevedo
#24. That love can be a band:
tears if you pull it too hard,
but also flexible enough
to stretch around the most chaotic mass #Quote by Elizabeth Acevedo
Band quotes by Frederick Lenz
#25. The top of the band would be happiness, contentment and peace of mind. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Band quotes by Tony Blair
#26. I would've loved to have been in a band, but sadly I just wasn't good enough. #Quote by Tony Blair
Band quotes by Vince Gill
#27. Even when I'm touring, I feel like a sideman ... everybody's working together. We get to play longer solos; it's not just "Here's the record! Thank you for coming Goodnight" ... it has always had a "band" feel instead of being a singer and his backup band ... #Quote by Vince Gill
Band quotes by Jerry Harrison
#28. I had previously been in the band the Modern Lovers with Jonathan Richman. #Quote by Jerry Harrison
Band quotes by Scarlett Cole
#29. Harper walked over to her reception desk. "What's with the Tyson look-alikes out there? I almost couldn't get in here."
Pixie frowned. "Better go ask your boy-o. Famous rock star in the house." Pixie accentuated her comment with the poke of her pen.
Jeez, he was huge. And built. And shirtless. Okay, enough staring. Well, maybe just for another second. Trent was leaning over the guy, and she could tell from the wide-reaching spread of purple transfer lines that he was just beginning a sleeve on the other man's lower arm. The guy in the chair might well be a rock star - although Harper would never admit she had no clue who he was - but he was wincing. Harper could totally feel for him.
Trent was in his usual position - hat on backward, gloves on, and perched on a stool.
Harper approached them nervously. The big guy's size and presence were a little intimidating.
"I don't bite." Oh God. He was talking to her.
"Excuse me?"
He sucked air in between clenched teeth. "I said I don't bite. You can come closer." His blue eyes were sparkling as he studied her closely.
Trent looked up. "Hey, darlin'," he said, putting the tattoo machine down and reaching for her hand. "Dred, this is my girl, Harper. Harper, this is Dred Zander from the band Preload. He's one of the other judges I told you about."
Wow. Not that she knew much about the kind of music that Trent listened to, but even she had heard of Preload. That certainly explained t #Quote by Scarlett Cole
Band quotes by Augusten Burroughs
#30. Where there is willpower there is a Band Aid that's eventually going to fall off.

You only need willpower to get what you don't want or you only want to want. By want to want, I mean, something you wish you wanted but don't really. #Quote by Augusten Burroughs
Band quotes by Shane Filan
#31. You shouldn't end a band like Westlife and not be financially secure to some extent, but I wasn't at all - it was the complete opposite. But you look at stuff then, 'Well, what do I have? I don't have money but I have a great marriage, three healthy kids, and I have my voice. I'll just start again.' #Quote by Shane Filan
Band quotes by Francine Rivers
#32. Have you ever been to the beach and wanted to feed the seagulls? The problem is you tear off a little crust from your sandwich and toss it to one, and ten more show up. Toss a little more and a flock descends. You start to wonder: if I run out of bread, will I become the meal?
Turkeys are different. They startle easily and run for the barn. In the wild, they run for the hills. Of course, they're very tasty. Benjamin Franklin thought them majestic enough to be an emblem for our country. I'm sorry, but Thanksgiving would be downright depressing. There's our national symbol lying stuffed and roasted and ready to carve up for hungry guests.
And then we have the eagles. Our forefathers were trained in the Bible. […]They would have known Isaiah 40:31. "Those who wait upon the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary." They were making war on the greatest power in the world of the time; the world was watching them. What could this band of commoners do?
What troubles me about our country today is how many seagulls there are, scrambling for more. Remember the movie "Finding Nemo"? "Mine, mine, mine!" And we sure have a lot of gutless turkeys running for the barn whenever hard decisions have to be made; like how to keep our country solvent so our children won't be in soup lines…
Where are the eagles? That's what I want to know. Please, God, we need us some eagles! #Quote by Francine Rivers
Band quotes by Joe Casey
#33. I'm definitely not in a band to convince anyone I can sing. #Quote by Joe Casey
Band quotes by Tim Dorsey
#34. These rare gray afternoons evoke a sweet, childhood melancholy in my soul, like when it rained in kindergarten and we had to stay inside and do crafts with library paste and pipe cleaners and buttons, and I made the best project in the whole class, an ultra-powerful rubber-band zip gun, but the teacher gave me a zero because I got her in the eye with a button. #Quote by Tim Dorsey
Band quotes by Chris Carmack
#35. I grew up playing the saxophone. I joined the jazz band in high school, but somewhere along the way I realized the guys who strummed acoustic guitars at parties were the ones who got the attention. So I asked a friend to show me a few chords, and when I moved to L.A. I spent a lot of time practicing my guitar. #Quote by Chris Carmack
Band quotes by Rashid Johnson
#36. My father owned a small company, called Gundel Electronics, where he did community band radio and some repair stuff. #Quote by Rashid Johnson
Band quotes by Gloria Estefan
#37. When I went to do "Carson" that night, they wanted us to do two songs, but we were a brand new band. "Conga" hadn't even hit the top 10 yet. They go, "Do you think you could do something that people know, because we want you to do a second song, but not two originals, because we don't want to lose the audience, just in case." #Quote by Gloria Estefan
Band quotes by Cameron Conaway
#38. Real childhood scars heal, but not when band-aids replace self-reflection. #Quote by Cameron Conaway
Band quotes by Carl Gardner
#39. My musical background in Tyler, Texas was quite outstanding. Uh, I grew up with, uh, with high school teachers who were in bands, they could play music. And we had a nine piece band there in Tyler, and I joined them when I was about, oh, 15 years old and traveled all over Texas in that band, playing for the elite oil people. Hah. And um, I was making about 50 bucks a night, and uh, it taught me, they taught me how to find my timing and to learn the songs that I wanted. #Quote by Carl Gardner
Band quotes by Slash
#40. I was the one that allegedly "quit and joined my old band." That wasn't true. But it was said so matter-of-factly on the Internet that the guys weren't really sure what I was up to. #Quote by Slash
Band quotes by Rod Serling
#41. I only wanted to tell you that this was the wonderful time for you. Don't let any of it go by without enjoying it. There won't be any more merry-go-rounds. No more cotton candy. No more band concerts. I only wanted to tell you, Martin, that this is the wonderful time. Now! Here! That's all. That's all I wanted to tell you. #Quote by Rod Serling
Band quotes by Johnny Marr
#42. If you're in a successful band, you tend to fall into a role. But I'm not remotely laddish. I'm a grown-up. I'm vegan and teetotal. I run 50 miles a week, listening to Franz Ferdinand and the Four Tops at top volume. #Quote by Johnny Marr
Band quotes by Dan Mangan
#43. I am trying to keep my voice in order. Basically not talking much in the van throughout the day to preserve it, which I'm sure is welcomed by the band. #Quote by Dan Mangan
Band quotes by Jimmy Chamberlin
#44. Had I joined a straight rock band, I'm sure my drumming would be a little bit different right now. #Quote by Jimmy Chamberlin
Band quotes by Layne Staley
#45. I was in a band when I was 15. We were a glam band. Then I couldn't afford to buy makeup. At the time that was the thing. #Quote by Layne Staley
Band quotes by Gary Allan
#46. If you're truly in a band and you guys have been together for a long time, there's a family bond that you have. In fact, I've talked about this with therapists, especially if you're talking about a relationship, because when you're with somebody, you're going to your family, and she's alone. #Quote by Gary Allan
Band quotes by Rhiannon Frater
#47. You could tell exactly where the popular kids were sitting, the jocks, the drama kids, the band kids, the goths, the kickers, and the other kids who just floated in the middle of it all were, of course, the outsiders. #Quote by Rhiannon Frater
Band quotes by Jon Landau
#48. 'Sing It Again Rod' touches all the solo bases since Stewart's departure from the Jeff Beck Band, wherein he cut his teeth on American audiences for $75 a week plus expenses, and wisely ignores his generally inferior work with the Faces. #Quote by Jon Landau
Band quotes by David Platt
#49. No sound system. No band. No guitar. No entertainment. No cushioned chairs. No heating or air-con. Nothing but the people of God and the word of God. And strangely, that's enough. God's Word is enough for millions of believers who gather in house churches ... Jungles ... Rainforests, and middle-eastern cities. But is his Word enough for us? #Quote by David Platt
Band quotes by Alex Scally
#50. Sometimes, for bands, everything just happens too fast. #Quote by Alex Scally
Band quotes by Denis Leary
#51. When I clicked into this idea of doing a band and examining a band as a dysfunctional family, I wanted to reverse that Rescue Me formula. #Quote by Denis Leary
Band quotes by Don Henley
#52. Sharper than a serpents tongue, tighter than a bongo drum, quicker than a one night stand, slicker than a mambo band. #Quote by Don Henley
Band quotes by Rhys Ifans
#53. There's two kinds of rock n' roll casualty: the one that has huge success and adoration, and then suddenly it stops. Or there's when you're in a band: it is all-consuming, so then you have the dream of that, and then the dream's taken away from you even before it happens. #Quote by Rhys Ifans
Band quotes by Hayley Williams
#54. The most important part about playing shows and touring, is connecting with fans. At the end of the day it's not really a band and fans, we're all just human beings. #Quote by Hayley Williams
Band quotes by Rob Sheffield
#55. The key thing about LCD Soundsystem is that people always wanted this band to exist. For years, it was glaringly obvious that a band like this should exist, and people were impatiently waiting for them to show up. #Quote by Rob Sheffield
Band quotes by Tom DeLonge
#56. I used to get so jealous if my wife liked another band more than my own. Come to think of it, I still do. #Quote by Tom DeLonge
Band quotes by Artie Shaw
#57. 'Swing' is an adjective or a verb, not a noun. All jazz musicians should swing. There is no such thing as a 'swing band' in music. #Quote by Artie Shaw
Band quotes by Torquil Campbell
#58. I'm not an endings person. I don't do endings. There may have been people in the band who wanted this to be an ending from time to time, but me and Amy don't really do endings. You cannot escape from us. Once we're friends with you, that's it. #Quote by Torquil Campbell
Band quotes by Chris Reifert
#59. I'm always interested in new things. I don't go seeking out every band I can hear because there are too many, especially now with the Internet. There's no way you can collect everything. #Quote by Chris Reifert
Band quotes by Tommy Lee
#60. One day I would love to do rock a gig on the moon - how rad would that be? Isn't Richard Branson flying planes to outer space? Motley Crue could be the first band to play on the moon. #Quote by Tommy Lee
Band quotes by Lizzy Goodman
#61. You know how they say Black Flag got in a van, and they brought punk rock to the world? The Strokes got on a bus, and they brought "downtown cool" to the world. Along with the Internet, they were changing everything, not just music. They were changing attitudes. The Strokes were making New York travel with them. I saw kids in Connecticut and Maine and Philadelphia and DC looking like they had just been drinking on Avenue A all night. Sixteen-year-old kids in white belts and Converse Chuck Taylors with the greasy hair - hair that had been clean a week ago. Those kids had probably never even smelled the inside of a thrift store before Is This It came out. They found a band that they wanted to be like. They found their band. APRIL #Quote by Lizzy Goodman
Band quotes by Tiesto
#62. My favorite all-time artist ... I would say, I think that must be Sigur Ros, I love that band. It's like going to the stars for me. When I put the music from Jonsi or Sigur Ros on, it's so relaxing, it's warm and it never gets boring to listen to, you always hear new things. Yeah, that must be my favorite band. #Quote by Tiesto
Band quotes by Adam Levine
#63. You wouldn't be a complete band without a slightly cocky frontman, would you? #Quote by Adam Levine
Band quotes by Alain De Botton
#64. I've had my successes and failures. I know many academics in my field loathe me. I've come to loathe them back, as it seems only polite to do so. But at heart it's absurd; we should band together against the big common enemies. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Band quotes by As I Lay Dying
#65. We've focused so long on ideals of freedom that it is this very belief that oppresses us.
We all want to be free, yet we find ways to forfeit liberty to our own impulses, to our own consumption. #Quote by As I Lay Dying
Band quotes by Jennifer Egan
#66. I listened to classic rock and roll, and punk rock. 'Goon Squad' provides a pretty accurate playlist of my teenage years, though it leaves out 'The Who,' which was my absolute favorite band. #Quote by Jennifer Egan
Band quotes by Nikki Sixx
#67. The more confident you are, the more you can let go and believe that the people you've chosen to be in your circle are able to do what they say they're going to do and what they're really good at. It has made me a better band member, too. #Quote by Nikki Sixx
Band quotes by Thomas Harris
#68. Dr. Lecter took off Krendler's runner's headband as you would remove the rubber band from a tin of caviar. #Quote by Thomas Harris
Band quotes by F Scott Fitzgerald
#69. Please do not have a band, as I do not care for music. #Quote by F Scott Fitzgerald
Band quotes by Peter Ackroyd
#70. He was walking around in circles, the smell of the old furniture suddenly very distinct. There was a newspaper in his hand and he started reading it, paying particular attention to the headlines which seemed to be floating towards him so that now a band of black print encircled his forehead. He was curled upon the bed, hugging his knees, when the next horror came upon him: those who heard him last night would now have to report his theft, and his employer would call the police. He saw how the policeman took the telephone call at the station; how his name and address were spoken out loud; how he looked down at the floor as they led him away; how he was in the dock, forced to answer questions about himself, and now he was in a cell and had lost control of his own body. He was staring out of the window at the passing clouds when it occurred to him that he should write to his employer, explaining his drunkenness and confessing that he invented the story of theft; but who would believe him? It was always said that in drink there was truth, and perhaps it was true that he was a convicted thief. He began to sing,

One fine day in the middle of the night,
Two dead men got up to fight

and then he knew what was meant by madness. #Quote by Peter Ackroyd
Band quotes by Daniel Ehrenhaft
#71. I'm sorry, Hen. I still have feelings for you. It's just that my band needs a real bass player now. We're not a joke band anymore. Okay, sweetie?'
That was how Petra Dostoyevsky fired me. #Quote by Daniel Ehrenhaft
Band quotes by Billy Sherwood
#72. I grew up in a very musical family, my father was a musician and a big band leader and made records. #Quote by Billy Sherwood
Band quotes by Kim Gordon
#73. I think that certainly, whenever you have a new band, the first record always has a certain energy to it before you know what you're doing. I think some of the early Sonic Youth stuff was maybe like that. #Quote by Kim Gordon
Band quotes by Stevie Nicks
#74. When you're in a band with three writers, three great writers, you only get one third of the writer thing. So that's the whole reason that I did a solo career. And that's, you know, when I told Fleetwood Mac I was going to do that, they were of course terrified that I would do that record and then that I would quit. #Quote by Stevie Nicks
Band quotes by Tommy Lee
#75. The New York Dolls are the only band that we grew up on that we haven't played with. #Quote by Tommy Lee
Band quotes by Jack White
#76. I'm always surprised when anything about the band connects. But I love the fact that it's hard for people to understand. We've said before that it's always been a great thing to get certain people to go away thinking, 'Oh dear, she can't play the drums!' 'Fine, if you think it's all a gimmick, go away!' It weeds out people who wouldn't care anyway. #Quote by Jack White
Band quotes by Louise Rennison
#77. Boys are like elastic bands. It doesn't mean that boys are made of elastic, which is a plus because nobody wants a boyfriend made out of rubber. On the other hand, if they were made out of rubber, you could save yourself a lot of time and effort and heartache by just rustling one up out of a car tire. Boys are different from girls. Girls like to be cozy all the time but boys don't. First of all, they like to get all close to you like a coiled-up rubber band, but after a while, they get fed up with being too coiled and need to stretch away to their full stretchiness. Then, after a bit of on-their-own strategy, they ping back to be close to you. So in conclusion on the boy front, you have to play hard to get and also let them be elastic bands. #Quote by Louise Rennison
Band quotes by Rick Allen
#78. But the irony is that because the band isn't the focus any more, it allows me the chance to enjoy being a member of Def Leppard much more. #Quote by Rick Allen
Band quotes by Duke Ellington
#79. If anybody was Mr. Jazz it was Louis Armstrong. He was the epitome of jazz and always will be. He is what I call an American standard, an American original. #Quote by Duke Ellington
Band quotes by Chris McCaughan
#80. It's hard to say. Whenever you play with a group of people for a long time it influences the way that you play with others. They were all very defining in their own way and all affected the band in one way or another. I don't think they are so obvious in the music. The fact is that The Lawrence Arms is the culmination of a long search of trying to find people who play well as a unit. #Quote by Chris McCaughan
Band quotes by Steve Albini
#81. The band cannot sign to another label or even put out its own material unless they are released from their agreement, which never happens. #Quote by Steve Albini
Band quotes by Bruce Pavitt
#82. I had no real photography experience, thankfully. I consciously took a lot of crowd shots. I was influenced by Seattle photographer Charles Peterson, who always seemed to incorporate fans in his live band shots. #Quote by Bruce Pavitt
Band quotes by Edie Brickell
#83. But when it came to jamming and writing songs like we used to, we realized Brandon was a huge spirit in the band. Who knew? It was just something we had to learn. #Quote by Edie Brickell
Band quotes by Chris Squire
#84. I think partly the problem with Yes - and I've had this discussion with people from the Hall of Fame in the past - is that it's going to be difficult to decide how many of the members of Yes you're gonna put in it and how many you're not because of the extensive membership of the band through the years. #Quote by Chris Squire
Band quotes by Jonny Greenwood
#85. I sometimes feel a bit embarrassed to play guitar. There's something - I don't want to sound ungrateful - but there's something very old-fashioned and traditional about it. You meet kids today whose grandparents were in punk bands. It's very old and traditional, but then, so is an orchestra and so is a string section. #Quote by Jonny Greenwood
Band quotes by Kim Gordon
#86. Families are like little villages. You know where everything is, you know how everything works, your identity is fixed, and you can't really leave, or connect with anything or anybody outside, until your physically no longer there. #Quote by Kim Gordon
Band quotes by Ashlan Thomas
#87. It's just a shirt. I have no emotional connection to it or the band. I just didn't feel like coming to work topless today."
Camden's hand slammed down on the counter. "Shit, are there days that you come topless? I would like to make sure I'm here for that. #Quote by Ashlan Thomas
Band quotes by Jimmy Chamberlin
#88. My brother was always in bands and on the road when I was a kid and he was my inspiration. He never made it with a big band, in fact he never made a record. Here he is fifty-something years old. #Quote by Jimmy Chamberlin
Band quotes by Emma Straub
#89. force them to band together. Jim imagined himself and Franny striding into a Mallorcan courtroom, the bump on Franny's head now the size of a tennis ball, hard proof of Antoni's negligence. "And how are you?" Charles asked. He purposefully #Quote by Emma Straub
Band quotes by Chris McCaughan
#90. I'm not ashamed to say that I really loved some of the hair metal bands of the '80s. #Quote by Chris McCaughan
Band quotes by Justin Vernon
#91. I don't feel anything about it. I really like "Staring at the Sun" - I like that song a lot. I haven't heard a lot of their records, but I know that they're cool. I know that the people who listen to them are really awesome and I like those people, so I know that I would like the band, I just don't own their records. #Quote by Justin Vernon
Band quotes by Marion Milner
#92. I had been continually exhorted to define my purpose in life, but I was now beginning to doubt whether life might not be too complex a thing to be kept within the bounds of a single formulated purpose, whether it would not burst its way out, or if the purpose were too strong, perhaps grow distorted like an oak whose trunk has been encircled with an iron band. I began to guess that my self's need was for an equilibrium, for sun, but not too much, for rain, but not always… So I began to have an idea of my life, not as the slow shaping of achievement to fit my preconceived purposes, but as the gradual discovery and growth of a purpose which I did not know. I wrote: "It will mean walking in a fog for a bit, but it's the only way which is not a presumption, forcing the self into a theory. #Quote by Marion Milner
Band quotes by Levon Helm
#93. The Band never really played big concert tours. We never sold millions and millions of albums. #Quote by Levon Helm
Band quotes by Ladyhawke
#94. Years ago I was in a band called Two Lane Blacktop - we deliberately named ourselves after the 'Two-Lane Blacktop' movie, 'cuz it's a car chase movie. All our songs were based on movies, every single song. I love movies, and that was something that me and the singer in Two Lane Blacktop bonded over - we were design students together, we did a film-class together, so we became obsessed with movies. It's followed me around ever since then, it's a constant theme. #Quote by Ladyhawke
Band quotes by Brandon Thomas
#95. All the bands get along really well. That's one of the biggest things on a tour. It's great to get all these cool bands together, but if they don't get along it sucks. #Quote by Brandon Thomas
Band quotes by Paul Eenhoorn
#96. I did some stage when I was a kid, around 16 or so. I was living in Melbourne and had a band. I was quite young. We weren't very good. Then I found a band in Perth. We played around for three years. We're in the 'History of Rock'N'Roll,' a book about Perth music. #Quote by Paul Eenhoorn
Band quotes by Gregg Allman
#97. The Beatles had just come out, and everybody had a band. It was incredible competition out there. #Quote by Gregg Allman
Band quotes by Chip Esten
#98. I had been in a band in college. You kind of need to make a choice between going the music route or going the acting route. I chose acting, figuring I could always do the music on my own. #Quote by Chip Esten
Band quotes by Eric Carr
#99. I was in one bar band from 1965 to '69, then I was in another one from 1970 to '79 - a 9-year bar band! #Quote by Eric Carr
Band quotes by Adam Levine
#100. People always - when you rise, whenever you're getting to a point where you're a very big band, which is a very rare thing, there are always going to be people that aren't going to like you. #Quote by Adam Levine
Band quotes by Roger Bart
#101. In high school, I had a wonderful teacher who, coincidentally also taught Meryl Streep before me. At the same time I had my own rock band, I played bass and sang. I was one of those kids who really enjoyed being with my friends and doing rather insane, but fun, creative things. #Quote by Roger Bart
Band quotes by Chris Stein
#102. We're a pop art band. Not a pop band. #Quote by Chris Stein
Band quotes by Rick Wakeman
#103. Even the two times that I left, I never really felt like I left the band. It's very bizarre. It's like there's sort of an umbilical cord that stretches between us spiritually. #Quote by Rick Wakeman
Band quotes by King Tuff
#104. I'm not a huge practicer, which is probably not a good thing because my band definitely needs to practice. #Quote by King Tuff
Band quotes by Mick Jagger
#105. You have to realize that everyone in a band is all more or less together, and everyone has their own niche, and some people lead in some ways, and some people lead in others. #Quote by Mick Jagger
Band quotes by Pierce Brown
#106. I touch the haemanthus blossom in my pocket and feel the wedding band around my neck. They didn't create me. She did. #Quote by Pierce Brown
Band quotes by Ciara Bravo
#107. What I really like about 'Red Band Society' is how real it is, and the experiences that they are going through are experiences that everyone is bound to go through at one point or another in their lives. #Quote by Ciara Bravo
Band quotes by David Bowie
#108. I started playing around with local rock band swith the alto. And then, in a nutshell, somebody fell ill one night, the lead singer of one of the bands, and they knew I could sing, so they asked me if I would stand in. And I quite enjoyed it, actually, I must say, at 14. It was a real trip to have girls wave at you and smile and everything just because you opened your mouth and sang. #Quote by David Bowie
Band quotes by Jello Biafra
#109. The underground scene is still a cool way to meet a lot of cool people, see a lot of interesting bands and get a lot of food for thought, but people have to remain curious and get their brain activity food from other places besides punk. #Quote by Jello Biafra
Band quotes by Mitch Hedberg
#110. I played in a death-metal band. People either loved us or hated us. Or they thought we were OK. #Quote by Mitch Hedberg
Band quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#111. Love by the sweat of thy brow.
Not through whispered words of hollow sound or lofty dreams ne'er substance bound that more than oft do run aground. Nay, love with mighty, blistered hands that turn the soil and carve the land. A bearer of toil and golden band.
Be strong! A founder of the feast!
Protective knight who slays the beast!
For promises and vows aloud are naught but wispy veneer shroud like cobwebs, frail, the airy words and wooing fail. So work, my darling. Toil as proof. Thy loyal heart be drained of youth and yet beat on, incessant sound. Both feet take root within the ground, and service be thy kingly crown.
Love by the sweat of thy brow. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Band quotes by Joan Jett
#112. Blackheart Records being 25 years old represents staying power and the fact that we weren't able to get a record out through conventional means, so we had to create this record company to put out our records if we wanted to be a band that had records to give out to their fans. #Quote by Joan Jett
Band quotes by JC Chasez
#113. With *NSYNC, we shopped our deal for a year in America, sang a capella in everybody's office, then moved to Germany for almost two years and became popular there. A guy representing a rock band came to our show in Budapest, saw 60,000 people get excited for a band from America that nobody in America knew, and told someone at RCA. #Quote by JC Chasez
Band quotes by Gail Honeyman
#114. During the next free-form jigging section, I started to wonder why the band was singing about, presumably, the Young Men's Christian Association, but then, from my very limited exposure to popular music, people did seem to sing about umbrellas and fire-starting and Emily Bronte novels, so, I supposed, why not a gender- and faith-based youth organization? #Quote by Gail Honeyman
Band quotes by S.A. Tawks
#115. Band together with the brothers and sisters of misery and never stray. You are the integral part of the deeply depressed. We found you. Hooray. #Quote by S.A. Tawks
Band quotes by David Johansen
#116. Most bands are commercial enterprises. But I'm not in one of those bands. #Quote by David Johansen
Band quotes by Jeff Kinney
#117. My office doubles as a karaoke den for the neighborhood. There are strobe lights and Rock Band plastic guitars, a disco ball and a fog machine and some other things. I have a really long work day, and you might find me doing karaoke by myself late at night. #Quote by Jeff Kinney
Band quotes by Holly Black
#118. We'll call him Maynard McSmollet and he can be from two towns over," said Aidan, snickering. "No one really knew him that well, kept to himself, but he was crashing the party because he could never resist a kegger - or how about Roderick Spoon? Roddy. The Rodster. He was in band and played electric keyboards but got kicked out of several schools for setting small fires. Yeah, that's better. What do you think, Gavriel? #Quote by Holly Black
Band quotes by Tim Heidecker
#119. When I was in college in Philly, there was a lot of post-punks ... hardcore ... like, rock. Sixties, retro, proto-Strokes kind of bands. #Quote by Tim Heidecker
Band quotes by Jools Holland
#120. My love is new music, I tend to go and see a lot of bands, while [co-producer] Mark Cooper spends his time reading the press. It's often the new acts that strike a chord, because they aren't seen on other shows. #Quote by Jools Holland
Band quotes by Megan McCafferty
#121. I tried writing this book about a singer in a wedding band, but realized I only wanted to write the book so I could have an excuse to sing with a wedding band as research. That's not a good enough reason to write a book. #Quote by Megan McCafferty
Band quotes by Nikki Sixx
#122. The funny thing is that when you have any form of presentation to your band, meaning you have the foresight to see outside of your creativity, you have a bigger vision. #Quote by Nikki Sixx
Band quotes by John Paul Jones
#123. I've never actually seen a tribute band. I can't really get a hold of the concept. To me, it's old material. I have no interest in it. I want to see what's coming now. #Quote by John Paul Jones
Band quotes by Becca Ritchie
#124. The Cobalt Empire is the largest, known for their regal poise, intellectual prowess, and fierce commitment to one another. Each Cobalt is prideful and passionately unique but when push comes to shove.

They'll band together like an army of one. #Quote by Becca Ritchie
Band quotes by Joan Jett
#125. So it was out of necessity that Blackheart was born. I think it's great that now, 25 years later, we're not only putting out our own music, but are able to put out music by other bands. That's really exciting for us. #Quote by Joan Jett
Band quotes by Jennifer Egan
#126. I came for this reason: I want to know what happened between A and B."

Bennie seemed to be waiting for more.

"A is when we were both in the band, chasing the same girl. B is now."

I knew instantly that it had been the right move to bring up Alice. I'd said something literally, yes, but underneath that I'd said something else: we were both a couple of asswipes, and now only I'm an asswipe; why? And underneath that, something else: once an asswipe, always an asswipe. And deepest of all: You were the one chasing. But she picked me. #Quote by Jennifer Egan
Band quotes by Stark Sands
#127. Luckily for me, when I was growing up in high school, I had a band, and I was a singer in the band. I'm less of a legit Broadway singer than I am a pop-rock singer. #Quote by Stark Sands
Band quotes by Sebastian Bach
#128. Every single band in the world has these gigantic songs that people are obsessed with. #Quote by Sebastian Bach
Band quotes by Trombone Shorty
#129. When I was a kid, my friends and I formed a band, Trombone Shorty's Brass Band. When I was six, I was a bandleader for my brother's band. #Quote by Trombone Shorty
Band quotes by Bobby McFerrin
#130. Then I came up with this crazy idea just to walk out on the stage with no band at all and just start singing whatever came to mind. I actually fought the idea for a while because it seemed almost too radical, but it became obvious what I was supposed to be doing. #Quote by Bobby McFerrin
Band quotes by Gene Simmons
#131. To be in a band on the road is to have anything and everything you want just by picking up the phone. #Quote by Gene Simmons
Band quotes by Mary Wollstonecraft
#132. Love from its very nature must be transitory. To seek for a secret that would render it constant would be as wild a search as for the philosopher's stone or the grand panacea: and the discovery would be equally useless, or rather pernicious to mankind. The most holy band of society is friendship. #Quote by Mary Wollstonecraft
Band quotes by Ken Follett
#133. The original eight cryptanalysts were supplemented, after Pearl Harbor, by some of the musicians from the band of the sunken battleship California. For reasons no one understood, musicians were good at decoding. #Quote by Ken Follett
Band quotes by Dave Grohl
#134. It's not until recently that I could even imagine myself as an adult. But these kids today, they look at me like I'm Neil Young. Nirvana is the band their parents listen to. #Quote by Dave Grohl
Band quotes by Billy Corgan
#135. Being in a rock band is just an excuse not to get a job #Quote by Billy Corgan
Band quotes by Joan Jett
#136. I remember thinking that Janis Joplin sang like Mae West talked. When I
first heard the primal scream in 'Piece Of My Heart,' I was hooked. 'Cheap
Thrills,' Janis 'Live' with Big Brother And The Holding Company, was one of
my all time faves. During the 'whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa's' in 'Combination Of
Two,' I couldn't help but go to the mirror and pretend I was a wild woman
like Janis, in a rock band. #Quote by Joan Jett
Band quotes by Drew Lachey
#137. I was a wallflower when I was younger, and at a young age, I was too embarrassed. So I didn't start dancing until around 20, and obviously when you're in a boy band, you kinda have to. #Quote by Drew Lachey
Band quotes by Ian MacKaye
#138. I'm basically in every band I ever was in, and the songs, I still mean them all. I don't take anything back, so I do look after them to some degree. But my main focus is on what I'm doing now. #Quote by Ian MacKaye
Band quotes by George R R Martin
#139. When Edd caught sight of the ragged band of wildlings, he pursed his lips and gave the giant a long look. "Might need some butter to slide that one through the tunnel, m'lord. Shall I send someone to the larder?" "Oh, I think he'll fit. Unbuttered." So #Quote by George R R Martin
Band quotes by Anton Newcombe
#140. You know why Guns n' Roses aren't a good band? Because no black people listen to them. #Quote by Anton Newcombe
Band quotes by Frederick Lenz
#141. The human field of perception is not the only band of perception. Nor is it necessarily the best; there is no such thing in infinity. Infinity does not label. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Band quotes by Howe Gelb
#142. I think the notion of success is fairly destructive. You can see elements of this surrounding any band becoming too popular. On the other hand, survival means you are doing fine. #Quote by Howe Gelb
Band quotes by George Nations
#143. The 5th Marine Division had suffered such severs casualties, they were able to bring our entire Division back to Hawaii in only 5 or 6 ships. We docked in Hilo and boarded a single train normally used to haul sugar cane to mill. These were open flat cars, the weather was beautiful, the scenery fantastic. As our train gets underway the Marines break out their Jap flags captured on Iwo Jima. There were hundreds of Jap flags flying from on end of the train to the other. This was a beautiful sight. The victors had returned home. I've never felt so proud to be a part of anything like this before in my life. There were no spectators, no one watching us, no crowd, no cheering, no band, only the remainder of a proud 5th Marine Division returning home. For some reason I preferred it this way, no one could understand our feelings at this time. #Quote by George Nations
Band quotes by Merrell Fankhauser
#144. When my band MU landed on Maui in 1973 we were greeted by a wonderful group of peace loving brothers & sisters who we immediately formed a bond with. We had two instant roadies, Spider & Richard, who helped with every move of our musical equipment. We settled into our house on the edge of the rainforest that eventually became a portable studio. We started rehearsing and booked the Lahaina Civic Auditorium for a full moon concert starring MU and a local band The Space Patrol. #Quote by Merrell Fankhauser
Band quotes by Elliott Smith
#145. There are lots of things I like about playing in a band, the things I can't do by myself you know. #Quote by Elliott Smith
Band quotes by Mary Lou Williams
#146. I wonder what an agent would do if he had to travel with the band he's booking. #Quote by Mary Lou Williams
Band quotes by Ringo Starr
#147. I met The Beatles while we were playing in Germany. We'd seen them in Liverpool, but they were a nothing little band then, just putting it together. In fact, they weren't really a band at all. #Quote by Ringo Starr
Band quotes by Daniel Handler
#148. The Edith Head Trio, I would say, would be even less of a musical career than playing the accordion, particularly because I played the accordion in The Edith Head Trio. I'm very impressed by your Googling. The Edith Head Trio and another band, Tzamboni, were two bands I was in after college that played at tiny clubs to little acclaim. Our Gypsy tango version of "When Doves Cry" was our biggest hit.But we were not destined for greatness. #Quote by Daniel Handler
Band quotes by F. Paul Wilson
#149. I survived a number of garage bands during my teens and early twenties, both as drummer and guitarist. It's nigh impossible for me to listen to music without parsing it. #Quote by F. Paul Wilson
Band quotes by Margaret McGoverne
#150. What had these people done to deserve a band of desperate rebels turning up on their doorsteps, and now more trouble!

Yet, what had any of them done, what gods had they displeased to deserve the calamity that was the Romans? #Quote by Margaret McGoverne
Band quotes by Oscar Isaac
#151. I started playing guitar at, like, 12 or 13 and just rock bands mostly. I had a punk rock band and hard core bands and all that. #Quote by Oscar Isaac
Band quotes by Margaret Atwood
#152. And this is the Marilyn section," says Budge. "You can have five different hairstyles, and in the outfits you get a choice too, depending on what movie. That's from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, the pink dress; there's the black suit from Niagara, and over there is the all-girl jazz band one from Some Like It Hot ... " "Where are these headed for?" says Stan. "The Oprahs. Are they that into Oprah, in Holland?" "You name it, someone's gonna be fetishistic about it," says Derek. "Our biggest customers are the casino operations, #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Band quotes by Don Asher
#153. The lower the class of the affair, the more likely the band will be invited to eat. #Quote by Don Asher
Band quotes by Kimbra
#154. It feels like it's just starting in America and the UK. It's great to have a loyal fanbase in Australia and New Zealand. People in America say how polished our band are, but that didn't happen overnight; that came from doing all this touring back home. #Quote by Kimbra
Band quotes by Dan Fogelberg
#155. I was playing in bands before high school even. My first band I was in at 14. And we were playing just Beatles. #Quote by Dan Fogelberg
Band quotes by Steve Albini
#156. If I'm working as an engineer for another band, the responsibility for brilliance pretty much rests on their shoulders. I think I'm pretty good, but I'm not good enough to turn a trout into a sausage, or the other way around. #Quote by Steve Albini
Band quotes by Sebastian Bach
#157. Bret Michaels and Dee Snider and I know how to step on a stage and front a band, and we're not ashamed to. We're not shoe gazers. #Quote by Sebastian Bach
Band quotes by Pete Seeger
#158. I was 16 when I came to New York. I had graduated to a tenor banjo in the school jazz band, and it was kind of boring - just chords, chords, chords. Then my father took me to a mountain music and dance festival in Asheville, North Carolina, and there I saw relatively uneducated people playing great music by ear. #Quote by Pete Seeger
Band quotes by Jimmy Page
#159. The beauty of the band was you never knew what was going to come out next. #Quote by Jimmy Page
Band quotes by Thom Yorke
#160. Music is more difficult - try naming a political band. The Dead Kennedys. The Dead Kennedys are political, but they are more funny than they are political. #Quote by Thom Yorke
Band quotes by Ciara Bravo
#161. 'Big Time Rush' was a great show, and I had some great experiences. It allowed me to become more of a comedic actress, which is also a great skill to have. But there wasn't a whole lot of tragedy in there. Not quite as dark as 'Red Band Society.' So I've been very lucky to have been able to grow in that sense, just through moving to FOX. #Quote by Ciara Bravo
Band quotes by Set It Off
#162. Maybe you'll change
Abandon all your wicked ways
Make amends and start anew again
Maybe you'll see
All the wrongs you did to me
And start all over, start all over again.

Who am i kidding?
Now, lets not get overzealous here
Youre always been a huge piece of shit
If i could kill you i would
But it's frowned upon in all fifty states
Having said that, burn in Hell. #Quote by Set It Off
Band quotes by James Bay
#163. I do some solo, acoustic stuff, but I also like plugging in my electric guitar and playing loud with a band. #Quote by James Bay
Band quotes by Dave Grohl
#164. And later, if I ever felt that I was getting swept away by the craziness of being in a band, well, I'd go back to Virginia. #Quote by Dave Grohl
Band quotes by Liz Miller
#165. The regular rhythm and upbeat tunes of military music or marching bands positively affect your mood even if you don't actually 'enjoy' listening to it. #Quote by Liz Miller
Band quotes by Bill Bruford
#166. A rock band used to be four guys and a drummer. Now it's five guys sitting around reading manuals! #Quote by Bill Bruford
Band quotes by Rob Delaney
#167. A long-term relationship is about showing up and working hard and banking on each other. If one's down, the other might be up and can help the other one up, and sometimes you're both down and you just [band] together. Endurance is a big theme of it for me. That might not sound romantic, but I kind of think that it is. #Quote by Rob Delaney
Band quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#168. Santa Claus is just a story," says Seth. "He's just the opening band to God. There is no Santa Claus. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Band quotes by Eric Burdon
#169. The Animals were their own worst enemy. The Animals were a band that couldn't live up to their name. I was the singer in the band and as long as I was enjoying myself I would keep on working with the band. But it got to be rather nasty once the big money showed up - things started to turn toxic. #Quote by Eric Burdon
Band quotes by Charles Lindbergh
#170. We can have peace and security only so long as we band together to preserve that most priceless possession, our inheritance of European blood, only so long as we guard ourselves against attack by foreign armies and dilution by foreign races. #Quote by Charles Lindbergh
Band quotes by Joan Jett
#171. The thing I get out of it is the connection. I remember going to shows as a kid and meeting eyes with the people in the band, and knowing they are meeting eyes with you, and that moment, that smile, and that's your moment. I want to create millions of little moments for other people. #Quote by Joan Jett
Band quotes by Brad Delson
#172. I'm inspired by the sheer ingenuity and intelligence possessed by my fellow band mates. #Quote by Brad Delson
Band quotes by John Deacon
#173. I wouldn't do go to another band. #Quote by John Deacon
Band quotes by Elizabeth May
#174. My cheeks are hot when he stalks right up to me, eyes narrowed. Pinched between his bloody fingers is a piece of scrap metal laced with seilgflùr from the blunderbuss - a shot that would have killed any other faery.

"Really?" he says.

"You were traipsing around in a low-visibility field while enemy fae are afoot," I say defensively, hoping he can't tell I'm blushing. "What is wrong with you?"

Aithinne snickers and Kiaran casts her a sharp glance. "It's not funny."

His sister tries to hold back a laugh, but doesn't quite succeed. "I'm sorry," she says. "But you just . . . I've never seen you look like such a complete mess."

Kiaran studies her with a narrowed gaze. "And both of you look like you've gone three rounds with a roving band of feral cats. I'd say we're even."

"Even? Oh, please." Aithinne ticks off each finger. "Thus far the Falconer and I escaped through a forest of spiked trees, fought off the mara, fled from Lonnrach's soldiers, and defeated two mortair. You were shot by accident with some weapon composed of a wooden stick with a barrel on the end - "

"A blunderbuss," I correct helpfully. Kiaran gives me a pointed look that says, Whose side are you on?

" - so I'd say I win this round." She finishes with the sort of arrogant grin that makes it very clear that this must be an ongoing competition.

Sibling rivalry, it seems, is not just for humans.
If Kiaran's glare #Quote by Elizabeth May
Band quotes by Brian Molko
#175. I'm tired of being around men all the time. I'm going to start a band called Skirt with three girls and I'll play the guitar and sing backing vocals in drag. I went window shopping when I was in New York, saw a lot of amazing dresses. #Quote by Brian Molko
Band quotes by David Johansen
#176. In the late '70s, I had a band - the David Johansen band, for lack of a better name - and I started collecting, not records, but tapes from people I knew who had jump-blues records. #Quote by David Johansen
Band quotes by Bernard Cornwell
#177. Sharpe wanted to be ready and so he untied the rag from his musket's lock and stuffed it into the pocket where he kept the ring Mary had given him. The ring, a plain band of worn silver, had belonged to Sergeant Bickerstaff, Mary's husband, but the Sergeant was dead now and Green had taken Bickerstaff's sergeant's stripes and Sharpe his bed. #Quote by Bernard Cornwell
Band quotes by Eric Clapton
#178. When you're onstage with an electric band going through a massive P.A. system, it's very artificial. You can't really hear your own voice as it comes out of your mouth. #Quote by Eric Clapton
Band quotes by Frank Turner
#179. The bands I like, they don't sell too many records and the girls I like, they don't kiss too many boys. Books I read will never be bestsellers yeah but come on fellas at least we made our choice. #Quote by Frank Turner
Band quotes by Frank Iero
#180. I've always been in bands writing songs with friends in order to play shows or record a future record. #Quote by Frank Iero
Band quotes by Robert Plant
#181. I've got the big name, but I've always wanted to be in a band, one of a band. #Quote by Robert Plant
Band quotes by Gemma Arterton
#182. I was in lots of dodgy bands growing up and I always fancied myself in a band. But, you know, I was rubbish at writing music. So maybe one day I'll play a rock star, or punk rocker. #Quote by Gemma Arterton
Band quotes by Tom DeLonge
#183. I don't get boy bands these days. Thye don't write their own songs and everything is choreographed from their dance moves to how they have sex with each other after the show. #Quote by Tom DeLonge
Band quotes by Sandra Cisneros
#184. I think that it's not enough to do the little Band-Aid things of having celebrities come and read to children. Not that we don't need to read to children, but we don't need to just do it one time and feel good about it. I think we need to think long range about poor people and their relationship to libraries. #Quote by Sandra Cisneros
Band quotes by Tony Visconti
#185. Marc Bolan had inspired so many people to pick up a guitar and join a band. #Quote by Tony Visconti
Band quotes by Courtney Love
#186. Kurt Cobain was Nirvana. He named the band, hired its members, played guitar, wrote the songs, fronted the band onstage and in interviews, and took responsibility for the band's business decisions. #Quote by Courtney Love
Band quotes by LeRoy Neiman
#187. It has been difficult to hold onto many paintings but I have retained a few. Possibly the current favorite is titled 'Big Band' completed in 2005. It measures 13 feet x 9 feet. It has 18 nearly life size recognizable portraits of the biggest jazz stars that I knew and saw perform in the 1950s, '60s, '70s, '80s and includes Wynton Marsalis. #Quote by LeRoy Neiman
Band quotes by Jonathan Gould
#188. It is the sound of the crowd that can be heard in the second, crescendoing rush of the orchestra that follows the final verse, rising from a hum to a gasp to a shout... fusing at last to a shriek (its similarity to the sound of the crowds at Beatle concerts is surely no accident). The onrushing sound of the orchestra at the end of "A Day in the Life" has transcended more than the conventions of Sgt. Pepper's Band. It is the nightmare resolution of the Beatles' show within a show. It is the sound in the eras of the high-wire artist as the ground rushes up from below. There is a blinding flash of silence, then the stunning impact of a tremendous E major piano chord that hangs in the air for a small eternity, slowly fading away, a forty-second meditation on finality that leaves each member if the audience listening with a new kind of attention and awareness to the sound of nothing at all. #Quote by Jonathan Gould
Band quotes by Ravi Zacharias
#189. I am convinced that all our attempts to change the letter of the law and to reeducate people have been, and are, merely band-aid solutions for a fatal hemorrhage. The system will never change because our starting point is flawed. The secular view of man can neither give the grandeur that God alone can give, nor can it see the evil within the human heart that God alone can reveal and cure, for atheism implicitly denudes each individual of the grand image God has imprinted upon His creation. #Quote by Ravi Zacharias
Band quotes by Brad Wilk
#190. I think it's really important, and it's a lesson I didn't learn until my late teens: Whatever bands that you love, go find out what bands they love, and what bands turned them on, and then you really start getting into the human aspect of it because the further back you go in time the less technology you had, and consequently the better records you had. There's this incredible library of music thank god. #Quote by Brad Wilk
Band quotes by Jack Antonoff
#191. I think what's cool about about going on a co-headline tour is everyone's bringing a huge show, so it's not like opening band, opening band, then here's the big show. It's like two big shows. #Quote by Jack Antonoff
Band quotes by Joseph Hopkinson
#192. Hail, Columbia! happy land! Hail, ye heroes! heaven-born band! Who fought and bled in Freedom's cause. #Quote by Joseph Hopkinson
Band quotes by Lauren Willig
#193. I know historians aren't supposed to fall in love with their own theories, but I was head over heels about the notion of an entire band of female French agents, like a nineteenth-century Charlie's Angels. Only better. It made the Pink Carnation's organization look positively humdrum. #Quote by Lauren Willig
Band quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#194. One athlete does not make a team.
One singer does not make a band.
One actor does not make an ensemble.
One participant does not make a contest.
One employee does not make a company.

One stroke does not make a portrait.

Band quotes by Austin Carlile
#195. Linkin Park has been a band for such a long time, for me, in my eyes. I was 16 years old when I first heard them. I heard 'Hybrid Theory,' and I was floored at what I was listening to. It was angry yet melodic, it had hip-hop and it had - it was just different, good. Good songwriting. #Quote by Austin Carlile
Band quotes by Michael Azerrad
#196. Back in the day, in '91 or so, I tried to interview Fugazi for Rolling Stone, which the band felt stood for everything they detested about corporate infiltration of music.

Band quotes by Billie Joe Armstrong
