“There is a gentleman that writes most of the music you hear, and is name is Richard Marx. He wrote “Bye, Bye, Bye” by N’Sync, he wrote “Butterfly Kisses” by Bob Carlisle, I won’t tell you what songs he wrote of mine, but when Richard Marx sends you a song, you do two things: you pickup the phone, and you say I’ll take it.”—John Mayer to a “focus” group of girls after they asked if he still wrote all his music and words
I don’t like it nearly as much as Mirrors. It has a few songs that are really great, and the guest spots are incredibly well done. I really don’t like that the whole record just sounds sort of silly. Silly music isn’t really my thing. Mirrors was very chill sound, and even weird at times, but it never quite got to the realm of silly. I think it can mostly be attributed to the timbres and textures on Gloss Drop compared to Mirrors. Not as many phat sounds or really groovy sections to balance out Gloss Drop as I’d like. I can appreciate that they’ve done something a bit different than before (I don’t really need to hear another record just like Mirrors), but I don’t think I’ll be listening to it as often as I have Mirrors. They’re still the only band doing their thing, so it’s all well and good.
“Don’t let these fuckers grind you down. Don’t let these bastards kill your soul. Bottom feeders in the worst way. A bunch of fucking turncoats. You gave them more than they ever gave back, and now everyone knows. Don’t let these fuckers grind you down. Don’t let these leeches suck you dry. You’ve got the heart of a lion. You’ve got the strength to survive. Time is their true punishment, they’ll eat each other alive. Don’t let them grind you down. Choke on all their lies. Wasted all their lives, lowest of the low. Cowards so beneath you now. You’ve got the heart of a lion.”—"Lions" by Doomriders.
“I get so sick of this shit ……I want you to pick up a book that you hate, read out loud over and over and over and over and over and over again. Then i will ask you to read it again because you do soooo well. If you like my playing what does it matter why i left a band. I left the band its pretty self explanatory.”—Chris Storey, quoted from a YouTube comment in which he responds to “WHY U NOT IN ASP NO MORE?”
