"I enjoy listening to old 78s of the Berlin Music Hall. My father was over there just after the war and one of my earliest childhood memories is of him playing his collection of German 78s".
DAVE VANIAN - 1979.
When we were told it was gig time, I went running down the steep stairs toward the stage. I wasn't thinking about anything but getting out there. I turned a corner on the steps and ran full on into Dave Vanian, The Damned's singer. He was dressed to the hilt in his vampire gear. I nearly knocked him over. I felt like such a jerk. He was cool though. He extended his hand & said 'hello'. I was tripping out on that as I went down the stairs. A guy who's records I had listened to for years and all I could do was nearly send him flying down a flight of stairs".
HENRY ROLLINS (ROLLINS BAND) - 1994.
