"With a relentless, never ending blast through, this band worked hard to make it hard. Imagine all they have seen and done and experienced. Solid iron songs clad in a screaming satin slam out. They are a true example of an uncompromising devotion - to living their lives to the limit. Never done. Through their efforts they have made millions of people feel good, and for that they deserve all that they can have."
"Well I remember when Pump came out, I was in, um, sixth grade, and uhh..
The cover on the album, I remember seeing it was the cars stacked and I was like, oh, its the tow-truck, yeh know, its being towed. And somehow, someone explained that it was, a sexually oriented, uh photo. And I remember I was like "Whoa", yeh know, thats really intense. And it made me feel a little queasy in a way, cause I thought of it as very strange for automobiles to have a sort of human quality about them, not only because they're controlled and made by humans, but we. We have this very, uh they have a very humanistic thing about them, to the extent that when we were driving around in cars, and we see cars around us, and in front of us, we look at them and they have their own personality beyond the person thats driving them -- thats in them. And we look at them in this way, and I... And that was definitely represented in that photo very well."
"I really, really like the Diane Morin Song "Dont Want to Miss A Thing," that they sang for the Armageddon Soundtrack. I think its absolutely fantastic, I think his vocal performance is astounding. Its a perfect song. I like that "Jaded" song a lot too. It's real beautiful. They're just real hard workers, they're real committed to what they do and thats an inspiration to me and everyone else."
