"I had no idea whether I could play 'em or not, but I wanted to and I was very determined. . . but the band director said #That's not really normal.' Of course, all you have to tell me is that something's not normal and I'll go for it!!"

R
"I remember thinking back then, 'Oh God, if we don't get a hit by the time I'm 20 I have to kill myself!' Well, we JUST made it, because it came out in late May, right after I turned 20, and within 6 weeks it was number one."

"We came out right in the middle of the hard-rock period . . . it was hard-rock everywhere! But we were ready to make our music, you know? And it was such a turnaround, I guess it caught people by surprise."
N
"Our first single, 'Ticket To Ride', was a kind of half-hit, half flop: in some places it was number one, in others it was ash-tray material."
K
"It's kinda nice to be remembered by your peers and your fans, because you can achieve a lot of success and be a creep too! But we try to be nice, just normal people."
