“ I don’t wanna rag on the industry and what’s happening with music these days…but a lot of records are being made where people who can’t even play can put a record together that it sounds like they’re playing…there’s a lot of what you call Pro Tools and this, that and the other…”
“its really hard to put a guitar solo together if you can’t play one..”
“There’s a lot of amazing guitar players out there, way better than me. They just can’t get a foot in the door. You can’t get a record deal anymore…you have to go on you tube or myspace and put it together on there…there’s no A&R guys no more”
“we’re as irresponsible as any old school rock band…”
“Jeff Lynn (front man from ELO) called me up about 3 months ago really happy about it…” referring to the VR cover of ELO’s “Can’t get it out of my head

“I don’t see any (Gn’R) reunion happening – for real!”
“I haven’t heard anything on Chinese Democracy…I probably won’t until it’s released.”

“I don’t support it, but don’t condemn it either." when asked about Axl’s new Gn’R line up.
“…it’s the same kind of thing…to have second shot…and have a great bunch of guys to work with….but it’s also sort of a relief as well, it’s not a tenth as complicated or difficult to pull off…” when asked about playing with Scott Weiland in VR in comparison to being in Gn’R with W. Axl Rose.
