  • Quotes

    • Mark: Out of all of us, Stan especially maintains that 70's ideology of fun and free love. He is Keith Moon. Stan tried to streak at 'Jurassic Park' right past some old lady who had just come out of the Coco's resteraunt.

    • Stan: I'd keep streaking at the movies, particularly for the summer movie sequel season, but I'm tired of getting arrested, I can't post the bail.

    • Mark:(on why they did a re-make of "Stand and Deliver" ) It's a song that means a lot to me from growing up, it evokes good memories. I don't know...I never thought it would make it to the record and be part of the finished product and now it's really cool.

    a 90's classic band who performed just about everywhere... I followed them when they were on MTV, good interaction with the cam!

    Sugar Ray is one of those bands that has been around the block a few times but still seems to keep your attention with great music. Like I said, they are definitly an older band, yes, meaning that some of the older folks might like them, but they are still really great. One of the things that i like the most about Sugar Ray songs are that they can be loud or soft. They dont have one style and every song is made to be different from the next and previous that they made. This is one of the reasons that they have lasted so long.moreless
