Taking Back Sunday Quotes
No one was really in any kind of band that went anywhere. All of us basically did the same stupid high school bands, you know, play with your friends and different shows locally, but never really made it anywhere. We all have that going on; I've had bands since I was 14 years old. Some of us did well from Long Island, but it never went anywhere for anyone else and Adam was in North Carolina doing the same thing as the rest of us.

I'm personally indifferent. I stand behind anyone who would decide to take a stand on that and I wouldn't feel opposed to it all but to me it doesn't seem like a pressing issue in my life. Adam, our singer, was a vegetarian for a while. But after a while, he ended up soft. He went back to eating chicken, just not all the way back to hamburger and steak.
