Roger Daltrey quotes

I don't know many singers who actually do like the sound of their own voice.

I don't care what people say about me.

I had me jaw broken, and so my chin stuck way out. That's how I became tough - I learned to pick up anything and fight back.

I hope I die before I get old.

I'm not always the most diplomatic person.

I'm not anti-fox hunting because, to me, shooting foxes is even worse and the results are horrendous.

I've never wanted to be anyone other than who I am.

I've always felt that music is an art form that deserves to live the life of the artist.

First of all, you have to understand that I'm like anybody else. When I hear my voice on a record I absolutely loathe my voice. I cannot stand my voice.

I never understood that if you sweat as much as I used to every night, you drain your body of salts. So I got very, very, seriously ill. I got to the stage where I was almost hospitalized with serious problems.

All you could do was to see them. We were backstage when the Beatles were on and you could just about hear a noise. It was just literally screaming.

Fifty per cent of rock is having a good time.

I always used to develop a cold going into the studio.

I don't like Tommy on Broadway at all. I like the music, I'm pleased with Pete's success but I don't like what they've done to it.

I enjoy singing; being in touch with something that is inside of me.

I thought if I lost the band, I was dead. If I didn't stick with the Who, I would be a sheet metal worker for the rest of my life.

Imagine if you could go watch Mozart today, even if it's the last, crappiest show he ever played. What a thrill that would be.

You know, I was a school rebel. Whatever they said do, I didn't do. I was totally anti-everything.

You're better off being a brick layer if you're going to play guitar than a sheet metal worker.

A lot of the new people they choose on shows like 'American Idol' and things like that - I don't ever hear lead singers. They always seem to choose to pick people that are great singers, fabulous singers, but they've never got the voice that makes a great lead singer.

The success of our operas rests most of the time in the hands of the conductor. This person is as necessary as a tenor or a prima donna. Giuseppe Verdi

I never understood a word John Cassavetes said. And I think he did that deliberately. Peter Falk bio

Let us be the ones who say we do not accept that a child dies every three seconds simply because he does not have the drugs you and I have. Let us be the ones to say we are not satisfied that your place of birth determines your right for life. Let us be outraged, let us be loud, let us be bold. Brad Pitt age
