John's top 3 quotes with the band:
#3 "What! What the fuck do you want, Sam!? I'm sick of always 'J, hey J, look
what happens if I do this, look what happens when I, I, when I do some other kinda shit!' Man, I SWEAR you are smoking
some kinda illegal shit sometimes!"
#2 "Here it comes. Full can of beer." (on
the live version of Carousel from their Southern California tour)
#1 "We don't want to act like adults. Anybody who can stay
in a state of adolescence will be much better off later on. Look at people who are working nine-to-five jobs out of
college, and look at professional skateboarders or guys in punk bands. See who's having more fun."
