Paul Westerberg QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
A rock'n'roll band needs to be able to get under people's skin. You should be able to clear the room at the drop of a hat.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
Actually, I've done it the other way so many times where you rehearse the band and you do the whole thing with lights, the show and the crew - everything. Then you see what happens and you're already committed to dates. I'm just sort of putting out feelers this way.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
Although, my experience when I've been depressed, not only am I too depressed to sit down and write a song, I'm too depressed to pick up my feet. So if you can at least write about it, you're halfway away from it.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
Any musician who can stop may be a musician, but they're no artist. If it's in your blood, it can't stop flowing.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
I definitely wanted to see who the fans were, because I'd been away long enough.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
I didn't wake up one morning and not be in the Replacements. We're all that forever, and I've just grown older. I mean, I haven't lost anything. I've gained a few things.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
I don't think there's anything that will make me stop doing it. There may be a time when it's not available to anyone. You may have to come listen at my basement window... but I can't stop.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
I forever felt that I've fallen right between the crack of way too young for the first generation of classic rock 'n' roll and too old to be brand-new. It's hard.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
I have my own language and it's high time I put a little of it out there.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
I like to go to the record store. Every time I do, I wander up and down the aisles and nine times out of 10, I don't buy anything.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
I put myself in all the songs I love. The singer's singing to me, y'know? I'm flattered, but it doesn't affect me, really.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
I read The Bell Jar, and then I read her memoir and her diaries, and a third book, an outside opinion. Just the way she made the pillows so neat on the oven door. It just seems to be the opposite of, if you're going to take your life, in a horrible rage it happens.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
I sat through Ladies and Gentlemen, the Rolling Stones like three times at the Skyway when it came out.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
I think it should be evident by now, but I'm as lost as anyone.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
I think of the Replacements only when they're brought up to me. For two years, I'm at home, they don't really cross my mind. I still hear them on the radio. I'm not ashamed of anything we did.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
I think that there's not a joke on this record, where once there always was for comic relief. I simply was incapable of coming up with one this time.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
I'm always slightly baffled when I get done with a record, because to my ear it sounds like what I would like to hear on the radio.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
I'm beyond caring what anyone expects of me anymore.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
I'm hard-pressed to think of a lot of great rock movies.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
I'm not dissatisfied with my place in it rock 'n' roll.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
I've got a bootleg copy of Ladies and Gentlemen, the Rolling Stones. I like that better than Gimme Shelter, actually.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
I've had more people in my life take their lives than... I think it's out of proportion with most people. I think a lot of them gravitate towards me because of the music.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
It was a teenage dream to be a rock 'n' roll star, and I think I came as close as I ever wanted to and it's much closer to artist now.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
It's fun, but the fun is where it always was. I mean, it's still fun to strap on my Les Paul in the basement and turn up the Marshall amp. I'm still 15. I still enjoy that as much as I ever did.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
It's like, it's up to the people to fall in love with the song. The record company can only do so much.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
It's my first record since my son is old enough to understand and I can't even show it to him. Yes, it's affected me, probably in the opposite of how anyone would have thought.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
Mono is certainly a bad influence.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
Oddly, when I started to make the record, I wasn't aware I was making a record. I just was sort of disgusted with the whole thing and sequestered myself in the basement and started playing the piano just for something to do.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
Reading music is like listening to flowers. I don't understand the concept.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
Right now, it hasn't affected my music other than the fact that I don't have time to write any of it. That's no different from when I first started and I lived at home. I would play the guitar in the afternoon and then my mom or my dad would come home and I'd have to quit.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
So I figured in keeping with the record, I'd do something off the wall which is show up for free and wing it... I don't know, I'm just going to play some songs. I think it'll be fun.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
Songs aren't really written that way. You take something that inspires you, and it might just be a roaring pack of lies.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
Stick with your heart and you'll be fine.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
The best I can say is that it's better for me to write about despair and darkness than to be incapable of getting off the sofa. It's better to write about suicide than to contemplate it too heavily.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
The hack songwriter will write the absolute truth every single word, whether it makes a great song or not.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
The key is myself and Tommy (Stinson), if we get together, that would be the catalyst and he seems to be pretty engaged in his Guns N Roses thing at the moment. I'm not asking him to leave that, so we'll just see what happens with it.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
The truth is overrated.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
Then again, I think about high school every day and I think about being a little kid every day too.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
To have a lot of people clap is not my goal, so it took me a few years to realize that I am an artist more than a wannabe rock 'n' roll star.
Quotation of Paul Westerberg
You know, he likes me because I'm his son. I have to go long and far to find someone who knows me just as me, rather than me the songwriter or whatever.
