Quotes

Pete Townshend: Gustav Metzger comes in and shows movies of him with one young Yoko Ono, by the way, bursting through paintings with... You know, slashing at it with a sword, and a bunch of what looks like idiotic art students on the streets smashing up an old piano, and then tries to describe his thesis, which was that what we're doing is we're destroying our planet, and what art should do is reflect that destruction.
