Blue Cheer Quotes
We were very young men and wanted to explore music, we added more and more amps. A lotta people loved us, a lotta people didn't. Our music, you either like us or you don't. We're a rock `n' roll band.
Dickie Peterson (about Blue Cheer)
When I first got the bad reviews it did rattle me up. We were young and you're lacking in self-confidence. We were used to people saying `Hey, you're great' and then you see bad reviews plastered all over newspapers, it was really shattering at first.

I think the drugs culture did some good but it became bad. I abused the Hell out of drugs, don't get me wrong I am against drugs and don't condone the use at all. I don't think it's a good idea but at that time it opened channels in my head that prior to that time were not open. It did change my life. I don't know anyone who killed themselves with LSD but I know plenty who did with heroin and alcohol.
