"You used to have to find your way to Lou Reed. Now as soon as some pointlessly vulgar song gets recorded, you hear it in a clothing store."

"Because rock music has become so watered down and homogenized, we forget that music is still a medium for social change and personal transformation. Rock music was once about breaking rules, but in this day and age, skintight jeans and leather jackets mean nothing and break no rules at all. If you want to break the rules, you create a place for the most unlikely people — who look nothing like the music icons we see in magazines — to not just break rules, but to invent new ones."
