Do you have any advice for aspiring musicians? “Just keep finding the guys that complement the stuff you’re trying to write and work on. That’s totally important. You gotta get the mixture of the people you want in that band. That’s all I can… just hang in there!” ~ interview with A.J. Wachtel of The Beat, October 1987

On working with Andy Warhol for the video “Hello Again”: “(laughs) He was a different kind of human being. (laughs) He was nice enough. Sorry he passed away. Yeah, it was a whole different ambiance going in and shooting a video with those guys. It was very hardcore New York stuff. There was just an air about the whole process.” ~ interview with A.J. Wachtel of The Beat, October 1987

Are there any local bands you really like now? “Like I said, I’ve been out of the country for a while now and in New York so it’s very seldom that I get out to clubs these days. We just popped over The Opera House the other night but it’s the farthest I’ve gone in quite a while. Bowie the other day. Usually the big acts, and even that’s a chore to get to these days. I just don’t have the time.” ~ interview with A.J. Wachtel of The Beat, October 1987
