Eddie Vedder Quotes

Eddie Vedder Quotes: You know, punk bands now sell with one record - their first or second record - sell 10 times the amount of records than the Ramones did throughout their career with 20-something records.

Quotes about Eddie Vedder: Music was your real passion, this thing you held dear even above family. It was this relationship that never betrayed you.

Quotes about Eddie Vedder: Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament and I get excited talking about making record artwork or working with T-shirt designs. The least exciting part for us is talking about the finances; it's like going to the dentist for us. But we at least try to do it in a creative way and put our stamp on it. I can only think that we create something that's worth the value of that dollar.

Quote about Eddie Vedder: When you're out in the desert, you can't believe the amount of stars. Are you busy as a bee? Do not even have time for fun? Do your friends advise you to buy essay writing example? Do not hesitate! Come after the advice of clever men and make a correct choice!

You also don't want to lock yourself into a situation where a major label owns part of your touring and merchandise.

Saying about Eddie Vedder: Before music videos first came out, you'd listen to a song with headphones on, sitting in a beanbag chair with your eyes closed, and you'd come up with your own visions, these things that came from within.

Eddie Vedder Quotes: Well, maybe it was just that I wasn't going to like anybody because I had to work and I had to explain to my teachers why I wasn't keeping up. I'd fall asleep and things in class and they'd lecture me about the reality of their classroom. I said, 'You want to see my reality?' I opened up my backpack to where you usually keep your pencils. That's where I kept my bills... electric bills, rent... That was my reality.

Eddie Vedder Quote: You know, rock stardom... I have a hard time discussing that because I don't really accept it. It's not really that tangible.
