How could we possibly believe that? It's just gotten downright silly, to the point where now it's sort of become like profess
You need eagles wings to get over things that make no sense in this world.
You belong among the wildflowers You belong in a boat out at sea You belong with your love on your arm You belong somewhere you feel free
George Harrison was the kind of guy who wasnâ€™t going to leave until he hugged you for five minutes and told you how much he loved you.
I would never put my songs in a commercial.
We don't really make bad records, though some people might like some more than others. And we have never really done a bad show. So I think in a way maybe we've been taken for granted.
I don't believe in censorship, but I do believe that an artist has to take some moral responsibility for what he or she is putting out there. And I think a lot of these young kids are goingto have to learn the hard way before they realize that you can actually do some damage if you're being careless
I think to be successful you have to work really hard but you also have to have a little bit of luck.
The music business looks like, you know, innocent schoolboys compared to the TV business. They care about nothing but profit.
The great thing about the Wilburys was that none of us had to take the heat by ourselves. I was just a member of the band. Nobody felt like he was above anybody else. We had such a good time.

I ain't really sure, but it seems I remember the good times
It's always been great to be onstage. It's really effortless up there. It's not a lot of work.
We've been sent here to raise hell and cause chaos.
Yeah, the world would swing if I were king.Can I help it if I still dream time to time?
You have four years to be irresponsible here. Relax. Work is for people with jobs. You'll never remember class time, but you'll remember time you wasted hanging out with your friends. So, stay out late. Go out on a Tuesday with your friends when you have a paper due Wednesday. Spend money you don't
If 20,000 people start to sing, you tend to go along with it.
I'll stand my ground and I won't back down...

We haven't always been boy scouts, but we never lost sight of the music, Let me remind you that this ain't the end.
I'm barely prolific and incredibly lazy. Tom Pett
It's very easy to be cynical about the hall of fame. But on the other hand, it's really a beautiful thing for someone like me. I dedicated my entire life to this music.
Some grow young, some grow cold...
I don't treat the band like I'm above them or that they're a hired hand for me. We've never worked that way. So I'm a team player. I would be very uncomfortable having to do this alone.
Yeah and it's over before you know it It all goes by so fast Yeah the bad nights take forever And the good nights don't ever seem to last
