Jimmy Chamberlin QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
All he wants to do is practice and that's all he does, all day long. That's what it takes if you want to change the face of music. You've gotta be committed to it.

At first it was a bit daunting, but once I started to do it, the more I got into it, the more I started enjoying it and being able to say things lyrically that I would normally have to say musically.
Quotation of Jimmy Chamberlin
But back then the thing that saved me was the music, and it's certainly the music that saves me now. The music, my family and my friends and everybody around me.

Certainly in a lyrical supporting role with Corgan and company that I've worked with, so it wasn't that big of a stretch for me.

Had I joined a straight rock band, I'm sure my drumming would be a little bit different right now.

I think the way I play comes from that and that I took a little bit from everything I was listening to and made it my own.

I've always seen my drumming as lyrical anyway.
Quotation of Jimmy Chamberlin
If you can get a twelve year-old kid to go listen to Thelonius Monk, what more do you want? Do you want a big pile of cash, too? That's a home run for me.

If you put the right things out there the right things will happen.

Is the Complex going to change the face of music? I doubt it. But if it can help it along a little bit, that's great.
Quotation of Jimmy Chamberlin
My brother and I had a real love-hate relationship with my success. There was some bitterness there that I didn't understand until recently, but I told him that if I ever did a record I wanted him to play on it.
Quotation of Jimmy Chamberlin
My brother was always in bands and on the road when I was a kid and he was my inspiration. He never made it with a big band, in fact he never made a record. Here he is fifty-something years old.
Quotation of Jimmy Chamberlin
No one writes about the emotional things you go through.

People just expect you to show up, be a cartoon character of yourself, take your money and go home. But don't screw up to the point where you're gonna be out of the picture.

What I see for the band by the end of this year is the Complex live at the Montreux Jazz Festival. I want my guys to be comfortable. I'm certainly not in this for the money, but I'd really like to see my guys make some money off of this stuff.
Quotation of Jimmy Chamberlin
When I'm at home I practice everyday.
Quotation of Jimmy Chamberlin
You start to look at it with a deeper respect and I think that deeper respect for what you do builds more self-respect.
