Quotation of Evan Dando
But ya have to make videos in the States. Usually ours just look too serious. We haven't got it together.
Quotation of Evan Dando
CDs, too. Totally corporate. They look real cheap and soulless and they don't smell of anything.
Quotation of Evan Dando
Drugs are just a really easy thing to fall into. There's no way you can be in a band and not be exposed to that.

Quotation of Evan Dando
For me, it's all about The Dubliners by James Joyce. I love The Dead.
Quotation of Evan Dando
I don't like alcohol, but I still like to mess around with other stuff occasionally. I think it's important I take mushrooms and acid. They're certainly not addictive, so I can't rule that out.
Quotation of Evan Dando
I don't write down my experiences, but I have a very decent memory. I have tons of books in which I write down phrases as they occur to me. That's how I write songs. I'll need a line and I'll go through the books and find it, the right rhyme and everything.
Quotation of Evan Dando
I guess I'm about ready to promote myself in a more human way. I don't feel quite so insecure.
Quotation of Evan Dando
I have to make rock records occasionally.

I just completely lost touch with what was going on and lost touch with myself. I was acting like a bad, selfish person.

Quotation of Evan Dando
I mean we're not quite a Gold band in America and that makes it feasible to go on.

Quotation of Evan Dando
I was hanging out with Jonathan Richman last night.
Quotation of Evan Dando
I was trying to spend it as quickly as possible. Because I'm so lazy, all that money created a block. I was flying around the world, staying at fancy hotels, having fun and trying to get rid of it as quickly as possible, so I could get on with some more work.
Quotation of Evan Dando
I'd forgotten what it was like to play music and have it be fun so I decided to stop. I wasn't even sure if I was going to make a new record, I was just kinda quitting.
Quotation of Evan Dando
I've got nothing against my parents; I don't know what it's like raising children and they did a damn good job, but they didn't see eye to eye.

I've got time, I hope, to make lots of quiet records. So quiet you won't be able to hear them.

It's better when you have your wife with you, more fun.

My high-school dream was to be in a band, pay my rent and eat - and I've been able to do that for 20 years. So I'm completely content.
Quotation of Evan Dando
My mistake is trying to do too much, when all that should matter is whether I'm happy with my records... and I am.
Quotation of Evan Dando
Rock stars wanting to write is even worse than wanting to act in movies, right?
Quotation of Evan Dando
See, to me, rock'n'roll doesn't have any point. It's just fun. It has a million different angles and they're all valid. But I think rock might be a world issue.
Quotation of Evan Dando
Since Elizabeth, I certainly live a healthier lifestyle.

The best songs I write in 20 minutes.
Quotation of Evan Dando
The last thing I want to appear as is serious, but people sometimes miss the humour.
Quotation of Evan Dando

Quotation of Evan Dando
When I write a song, it's all about the riff - the riff first, then the words come later.
Quotation of Evan Dando

Quotation of Evan Dando
You know more about me than I do about myself, that's probably true.
