"There are only three of us in the band and there are not a whole lot of egos flying around."
"I really don’t know what the next Living End record will be like – we’ve never got a plan."
"As cliché as it sounds, it was a labour of love."
"We still have our personal issues, we’re human, we still get on each others’ nerves. But I’m willing to accept that we all have our shit."
"I know [leaving Bon Jovi] wasn’t a popular decision that I made, but… thirty years is a good run."
"I think it’s the reason why I’ve maintained a career in music for this long because I don’t just take the easiest road all the time."
"I’m still honoured and flattered that us, a bunch of not very good-looking guys, get to travel the world."
"I don’t think the song is ever not going to be relevant in any social strata."
"There’s all the Prom Queen traits in there, but then we’ve added these little bits of icing in the cake that just make it a bit cooler and current."
"Any label that would sign us would know better than to mess with what we’re doing.”
"I’ve known these guys forever and I have every bit of faith that they know what they’re doing."
"We’ve always wanted to ruffle feathers and get people to think – that’s the ultimate dream."
"If you’re not touring in a rock’n’roll band, then what the bloody hell else are you doing?"
"There has never been a better place where our band has been in."
"I’m very happy with Burials and it has nothing to do with the first couple of records, which I’m proud of, because if we’d not grown it would have been embarrassing."
"I remember last time we were there I had the massive beard; [Jerry] Cantrell and I both weren’t going to shave our beards until Black Gives Way To Blue was really done and in the can, so we had to go to Australia with the ZZ Top beards."
“I always liked watching bands who had fun and made you laugh, so that was always one of our priorities."
"We fell into a little pigeonhole from the last record of being a breakdown band and just playing a lot of open breakdowns so we really tried to steer clear of that this time."
"We really wanted to focus on the quality of the record without feeling like we had to compromise on what we were doing.”
"We wanted this thing to be like the modern version of Led Zepplin’s IV or AC/DC’s Back In Black. We wanted it to be gigantic… And I think we achieved that, and I’m really proud of that."
