"To me, the moustache was always like a logo. You can trace the evolution of Sparks through the way the moustache has changed over the years. It continues, but it changes. The other thing, just as an aside, is that I look horrible without the moustache so it’s going to stay."

"Syd found three objects which he sat and stared at for twelve hours: an orange, a plum and a matchbox. The plum became the planet Venus and the orange was Jupiter. Syd traveled between them in outer space. His trip came to an abrupt end when Imo, feeling hungry, ate Venus in one bite. ‘You should have seen Syd’s face. He was in total shock for a few seconds, then he just grinned.’ From then on acid became Syd’s drug of choice."

"Failure was the worst thing for Marc [Bolan]. It was taboo. But the ironic thing is that he didn’t fail. He’s there in the records. He was a big part of many people’s lives. He would have been in his glory today. He probably is."
- Mickey Finn (T.Rex)

"Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life…You give them a piece of you. They didn’t ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like ‘maybe we should be just friends’ turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It’s a soul-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. I hate love."
- Jim Morrison

"He [Marc Bolan] was fabulous, one of the funniest guys I’ve ever met. We would be on the floor rolling with laughter most of the time. I really miss him. He was stellar."

"In my next life I want to live my life backwards. You start out dead and get that out of the way. Then you wake up in an old people’s home feeling better every day. You get kicked out for being too healthy, go collect your pension, and then when you start work, you get a gold watch and a party on your first day. You work for 40 years until you’re young enough to enjoy your retirement. You party, drink alcohol, and are generally promiscuous, then you are ready for high school. You then go to primary school, you become a kid, you play. You have no responsibilities, you become a baby until you are born. And then you spend your last 9 months floating in luxurious spa-like conditions with central heating and room service on tap, larger quarters every day and then Voila! You finish off as an orgasm!"
