Personal Quote:

[on whether rock music had stopped being rebellious and become the establishment] The barriers got broken down, I think, and the distinctions got blurred. And I think it's a very good thing. Music is music and rock music will always be there now as not necessarily the expression of the young but the expression of people who feel that they want to express their passions directly and communicate.
