“I want you to take my little turd and I want you to polish it and make it a diamond. I want you to take my idea and I want you to develop it with me. I want you to challenge me to re-write my chorus.” – Chris Greenwood

“The goal is not to get the artist to spend the most money possible. The goal is to have enough artists to be able to do this every day. To do that, you have to make sure that the artist is going to promote once they’re done.” – Chris Graham

“No matter what period you’re talking about in the history of audio engineering . . . that has always been the case. You either adapt, or you die off.” – Brian Hood
