“When I first started in rock, I had a big guy’s audience for my early records. I had a very straight image, particularly through the mid ’80s.”

“I was the only person I’d ever met who had a record contract. None of the E Street Band, as far as I know, had been on an airplane until Columbia sent us to Los Angeles.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“I don’t want to make a record like in the ’50s or the ’60s or the ’70s. I want to make a record like today, that`s right now.”

Britney Spears

“I have always been heavily involved in every album I have ever made. I’m very stubborn when it comes to recording and will only record songs I love, which is why it takes me a long time to make an album.”

“McCartney! Haven’t met him and haven’t played with him. I would LOVE to. He needs to make a kick-ass rockabilly record.”
