Quote of the Day
Sonnymoon and Quadrants are a couple of bands that really inspire me in terms of the melodics of things and certain tones and just what feels good. It takes me back to the type of music that I grew up on in my household. We played a lot of gangsta rap, but we also played a lot of oldies, and I think that mix is part of what inspires my sound.
I listen to both oldies and contemporary stations. I enjoy listening to current stuff because there's an energy to it that's inspiring.
I figure the oldies are real close to what rocking country use to be.
I want to go back to the format that radio started with rock n' roll, with country artists and rhythm and blues with that oldies type feeling. I want to put it all together and create a Top 40 of rhythm and blues and country and straight blues with Wolfman at the reins.
I love oldies just kind of sweet, slinky, Fifties music. The slow stuff. And Billie Holiday.
I grew up listening to oldies, like Motown. That's from my mom.
I hate it when bands do that; they're so proud of their new album, they have to play all of it and a couple of golden oldies.
I listen to oldies but goodies stations, '60s and '70s music.
I find it always pleasurable talking with young people, particularly those aspiring to be writers, out of nostalgia, and because I've always felt that we oldies can learn so much from them and draw from them inspiration in our flagging and rickety years.

When I was a boy, I used to stay with a school friend in Bexhill, in Sussex, which was then well-known for being the town with more oldies than any other. Aged ten, I felt slightly embarrassed by this, though I'm not sure why.
Every few years, I go back into all the songs and I update them so that it never sounds like an oldies show. If you come to the shows, they're full of muscle. 'Copacabana' sounds like it could have been released yesterday.
Kids don't see me as an oldies person when I go out on stage. They see me as an energy force.
Sometimes I listen to '60s or oldies stations to see if they're going to play a Beach Boys song.
When I used to play nightclubs, you had to play Top 40 or favorite oldies that maybe people could relate to.
I don't want to be an oldies act, kind of dragging around on the road just for the money.
