Personal Quote:

It is just sort of insulting, though, that all I will probably be remembered for is that fact that a very famous dude casually dropped my name in an interview. That this is as good as it will get for me, that I will always be subservient to that remark. (On Kurt Cobain) See more »


Black is referenced in the song "Veruca Salt Et Frank Black" by Vincent Delerm in the album Kensington Square [2004]. See more »
