Dave Marsh Quotes

"Daltrey was by all accounts the toughest man in the Who; maybe the toughest man in London. Filled with blue collar attitude, he strutted around the stage, screaming out the rage of a century of Londons dead end lives, roaring like a young lion trapped in a decadent, dying England. Townsend wrote prettily, daydreaming foolishly individualistic dreams of artistic expression, but it was Rogers sledghammer voice that smashed the skulls of the enemy."

There is a lot to be grateful for that takes place between the wheat field and the dumpling."

Quotes About Repeated Apologies

The same cage as hers"—she indicated the woman outside—"merely a different gilt." - Author: Sarah MacLean
