"I saw The Stooges and I went: 'What The Hell?' I was pretty used to getting the audience totally shocked by what we were doing 'cause nobody had ever seen anything like me before. And then I saw somebody that i had never seen anything like before!"
Alice Cooper
"I remember getting on the bus and just staring at the cover of Raw Power in disbelief all the way home. I wasn't disappointed when I played it because it sounded like I thought it would. It was mysterious, sexy, druggy, riffy and to-the-point"
Johnny Marr, The Smiths
