Gene Ween QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
A few years ago, one of our singles got beaten out by Better Than Ezra. The label could only have one band at a time being taken to the right people at radio, and they opted for Better Than Ezra instead of us. Who knows.

Basically, Pizza Hut just backed out on the ad agency at the last minute. They got fired and we got fired. It was a simple as that. We do stuff like that on and off.

I was never into smart college boy music.
Quotation of Gene Ween
I wasn't interested in a major label again, at least not right now. No one at our level should be, the way the industry is going right now.
Quotation of Gene Ween
I wrote most of these songs right before the end. A lot of these songs are about that. Even if it's not direct, you can feel the beginning of the end of the breakup in these songs.
Quotation of Gene Ween
I'm a very big Notorious B.I.G. fan and I do an imitation of him that always cracks everybody up.
Quotation of Gene Ween
Most of our fans seem to be very intelligent people who don't stand out too much, but they're still total freaks. I like that - they're smart and sadistic, which I think is a reflection at us.
Quotation of Gene Ween
Ninety-nine per cent of opening bands stink.
Quotation of Gene Ween
Not after the big bust in '92, there's no big drug lifestyle anymore. I can't talk about it. Pretty ugly.

Now in a way, money is money, and if it's going to increase our audience, that's fine.
Quotation of Gene Ween
The musicianship is more advanced, because we're older. And as we continue to progress, I'm certainly going to take the adult contemporary approach.
Quotation of Gene Ween
There is a lot of psychological terror going on in Ween, and there always has been.

We are going to put out a boxed set thing, but I don't want to do it yet. I want to wait until we're 45 and we're bitter and broke. Then, we'll put out the comprehensive Ween boxed set.
Quotation of Gene Ween
We had been working. We had a bunch of songs written and it came time to make the record, so we had our lawyer make the call to Elektra and ask for our advance. Then, we got dropped. It was actually exciting.
Quotation of Gene Ween
We love doing commercial and TV show work.
Quotation of Gene Ween
We signed with a certain group of people back in the day, and by the time we left, the place had changed over like three times. All Elektra did was put out our records. There was one guy in the art department who we really liked and that was it. We didn't expect them to put out White Pepper.
Quotation of Gene Ween
We sold a certain, steady amount of product for them and they could count on it. When it came time to ask for the money for this new record, they dropped us. It was fine with us. It was a dead fish.
Quotation of Gene Ween
When it comes to the recording and writing, it's still mostly Mickey and I. But now there's this whole live entity that's a whole different thing, and it seems to be where we're gaining the most popularity.
Quotation of Gene Ween
Yeah, we have humor in our music, but it can get as serious as a heart attack, too.
