If somebody says, ‘Do you remember the first time you heard a Rolling Stones song?’ if you say you do, you’re crazy. You’ve just always heard them. You might remember the first time it impacted you, but the first time you heard one, you were in a cradle.
Brad Paisley
I hear a really good pop song every now and then. ‘ROAR’ by Katy Perry, I love that! ‘Poker Face’… Oh! What a song! And ‘Rolling in the Deep’… Oh!
Bjorn Ulvaeus
You can’t be rolling into town with stars in your eyes. A lot of people get to Nashville and immediately start selling themselves: ‘Let’s go to lunch and talk about the business!’ Then you realize everyone is talented here.
Maren Morris
I just love rolling up my sleeves and doing research, and I especially love doing research on the origins of folklore and the origins of mythology.
Mark Waid
I’m not trying to hide from my past. I want to roll in it. Like a dog, rolling in feces, I’m rolling in the feces of my greatest hits – that’s a bit of a wild way of looking at it, but I am a man, and we do like rolling in our own feces at times.
Billy Idol
I got an opportunity to be on a tribute to the Rolling Stones in the late ’90s and did a rockin’ version of ‘Paint It Black’ – that’s probably the biggest stretch of anything that I’ve personally done. I listen to a lot of different kinds of music, but I understand where my parameters are.
Tracy Lawrence
When I started working for Rolling Stone, I became very interested in journalism and thought maybe that’s what I was doing, but it wasn’t true. What became important was to have a point of view.
Annie Leibovitz
‘Swagger’ would be the word for ‘Dirt On My Boots.’ With the real funky drum loop and the ganjo rolling down, and then the fiddles and the guitar and steel, it really took an old school style where it’s fiddle, steel, guitar, and mixed it with a drum loop.
Jon Pardi
I know I didn’t like that dress ’cause it didn’t fit but I thought it was a great picture. We weren’t the first band to do a picture in drag; The Rolling Stones were. If it was good enough for them then it had to be good enough for us.
Jimmy Carl Black
Even though I loved the Fifties doo-wop, you couldn’t hold on to it. You had to change, or you was gon’ be antique real quick, like the Ink Spots. And then we were at Motown and you had the Rolling Stones, simple rock & roll became the new thing.

Martha MacCallum
I think between The Beach Boys, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and innumerable acts after that… rock music became a huge economic force.

Lauren Graham
I am not an enthusiast when it comes to cities, preferring rolling scenery, wildlife and stars to museums, monuments, architecture and traffic.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a canonizing institution. Jann Wenner has worked to make Rolling Stone the keeper of the canon since 1970. I don’t like that, because he uses institutional power and he uses economic power to enforce those standards.

Joe Harris
With acting, you wanna see if you can get into trouble without knowing how you’re gonna get out of it. It’s like the exact opposite of war, where you need an exit strategy. When you’re acting, you should get all the way into trouble with no exit strategy, and have the cameras rolling.
John Cusack

The iPhone always has a different look from model to model – ‘Tangerine’ is quite smooth, but that was the 5s. I was using the iPhone 6s Plus for ‘The Florida Project,’ and it has what’s called a rolling shutter, and it gave it this hyperactivity and a very different, jarring feel, and we liked that.

Clint Howard
I don’t measure myself against my coaches, I don’t measure myself against my teammates.

I measure myself every day against the guy I was yesterday.
CM Punk
My first memory of the Rolling Stones is listening to ‘Satisfaction’ at a sixth-grade slumber party at a friend’s house in Ankara, Turkey, where my family was living at the time. In the middle of our sleepover, my friend’s dad stopped the record when he heard the words ‘girlie action!’

I don’t sing white; I don’t sing black – I sing Bronx. When I sing ‘Ruby Baby,’ I’m rolling like Jimmy Reed. I wanted to communicate like Hank Williams and groove like Jimmy Reed.
Dion DiMucci
Because I’m seen on ‘Oz’, a lot of the urban cats in the city are like, ‘Yo, I thought you’d be rolling in a Mercedes?’ And I’m just like, ‘Not at all!’ This is cable money. There is a big difference between that and a network. But still I can’t complain. It’s better than doing a 9 to 5 any day.
