I was green when we first started, I was only 20 years old I was using a fake ID to play in the bars that we were playing in and I did not quite appreciate what everybody needed to bring to the table for us to be a success and for to us to have staying power.”

“He walks straight past me, straight to Vannucci and it was just, I was like oh shit, we better keep an eye on what Oasis’ drummer is doing, but yeah he was a huge fan of him right away.”
