Quotes

Ed O'Brien: The trouble with a lot of music in this country is the radio stations with modern rock. It's such a stale format. As far as I can work out and we can work out as a band is, the music they put on these stations, it's not for the people. It's to satisfy the advertisers. It's completely reactive as opposed to proactive.

This is one of the greatest rockumentaries of all time, rivalling The Beatles' "A Hard Day's Night." Anyone who gives it less than an 8 rating obviously didn't get it. I give it a 10, and it deserves even more than that.
