Primer 55 Quotes
When I first got to Memphis, man, it was sad. The bands were either death metal, or Hootie shit, which went over big with the college kids. We lived in a few different places around town, - some ok, some not so good - and had friends of all different colors, so some were into heavy metal, some were into rap, some into Duran Duran, but nothing really grabbed me. So we started doing our own thing eight years ago and have kept on doing it. There just wasn't anything original in Memphis. Everyone was too afraid to be different. They all wanted to be hip.
The past couple of years, rock has really been coming back strong. People either love it or hate it, but I have no opinion. I do what I do. Korn did open the door for mass acceptance, but Anthrax and Rage Against The Machine have been doing it longer.
The Internet is the most important key to a band's success today. We're very involved with the site. Music sites are so important - kids are out there reading, checking out new bands and finding out about stuff faster than they ever could before. We are totally down with it.
