The Beach Boys

"That youthful idea that everything’s going to be alright, that I’m going to be someone’s Prince Charming and ride off into the sunset. It’s just apparent to me how things aren’t that easy; they don’t work that way. I think I’m disillusioned a bit, with the world. Hopefully I don’t follow in their footsteps and go into that odd, 1981 'I did too much coke, can’t make a decent song to save my life' phase, but I’ve still got a decent amount of time to figure that one out too [laughs]."

"Take the Beach Boys; the majority of people think their cheery songs about surfing and the sun are their best stuff. But I think once they got a little older and they realized that the '60s were over, and that the utopia isn’t going to happen, and the reality of 1970-1971 set in, that’s when that band starting making their best music."
