    “…it’s connecting with other people through the medium of music, we love playing in our studio, we love recording the songs but they never have the same passion as when you’re trying to play them in front of someone. I think almost the goal of our band is to be like a magician who’s equally as surprised when the rabbit [...]

    “It’s great to have something that’s stood the test of time like that and where people just relate songs to certain periods of their life or certain things that happened to them and you can see that on people faces because they get really emotional about a lot of the songs on that record.” From release: Counting Crows have sold [...]

    “Part of rock and roll is doing things out of the box and trying new things that push the envelope and kind of open your thinking up to different things, so I’m very appreciative that Australia has welcomed the idea and opened it up for me to do it.” From release: From the Megadeth’s inception in 1983 until the band’s [...]

    “…we had to do something a little special so we did take a little bit more time than we probably should’ve but we just wanted the album to be perfect and knew we had to hit a home run with this album because the last album was so strong and very popular with the legion, this album had to be [...]

    “I think when we originally did the record that got scrapped, there were some preconceived ideas and kind of direction they wanted to go in but then when we did ‘Madness’ I felt all we threw all that out the fuckin’ door. Let’s not have a path and got into it and see what comes out…” From release: Sleeping With [...]

    “Music is not supposed to be a competition, there’s too many bands out there that are angry and they want to be the best and they want to win everyone’s fans over and they give you the stink eye, and it’s like ‘get over yourselves’ you know what I mean? Just enjoy it, it’s music, everyone has their own fans, [...]

    “We just wanted to trust in our own song writing abilities and really enjoy the whole process, so we didn’t really have any fixed agenda as to what kind of record we wanted to make but then a couple of months into the process we started to get a really good feel that this record was going to be the [...]

    “I think the essence of it all is that we’ve still got the same passion and edge we’ve had for our music and we’re driven by that, and to be in the band at this juncture just to enjoy it, writing new songs, recording new songs, playing new songs and doing live shows, it’s as simple as that really, we’ve [...]

    “…I think and I know that everyone else in the band thinks it was the right thing to do is to change the name from Thin Lizzy and we’re gonna go Black Star Riders and come what may… we’ll see what happens and hopefully we’re good enough to cut the mustard here.” From release: It was in 2012 that Black [...]

    “The Scorpions have been doing this without a break, meanwhile other bands take a break for a few years or a member does a solo album while the others do nothing or whatever. We’ve been continuously touring or making albums and so we thought let’s get out of the routine, we didn’t want to split up, we were ready to [...]
