"I remember I was jamming with Nick in Vinnie’s Studio, 1994. We were, like, 13, and Julian came to visit. He just stayed and listened, didn’t even play, but it was a rare old time. He was eating tacos, I believe."

Happy Birthday, Nick Valensi. (January 16, 1981)
”Lots of bands with potential are just not devoted enough to drop everything else in their lives and be an amazing band. They’re scared of losing their day jobs or they’ve got wives; there’s something preventing them from devoting their lives to music, which is what we’ve done. We all dropped out of school, quit our jobs, pretty much sacrificed our social lives for a long time, cooping ourselves up in a rehearsal studio from eight at night till eight in the morning. We ate, slept, walked and talked music. We love it. That’s the way it should be.”
