“The first mistake of art is to assume that it's serious.”
Lester Bangs

“The only true currency in this bankrupt world is what you share with someone else when you're uncool.”
Lester Bangs

“Rock 'n' roll is an attitude, it's not a musical form of a strict sort. It's a way of doing things, of approaching things. Writing can be rock 'n' roll, or a movie can be rock 'n' roll. It's a way of living your life.”
Lester Bangs
