"I was in the closet with my metaldom. I remember driving around with my friends in a Cabriolet with the top down, in our turned-up-collar Lacoste shirts, listening to Violent Femmes. And when we'd stop at a gas station, they'd go in and pay for the gas, and I'd slip in [Motley Crue's] Too Fast for Love. You could get beat up for that."
"[Blackie Lawless] took some WASP posters and rubbed them on his ass and threw them into the crowd. I'm, like, 15 years old, and that's the coolest thing I've ever seen. Rub your poster on your ass, I'm in!"
