Today’s quote: “We were hammering on the ’70s forever and I kept wondering when are we going to look back at the ’80s. By the mid-80s we were already romanticizing the ’70s. Whether it was Led Zeppelin or the Sex Pistols, its all people wanted to hear about. Finally people now see that there was something of substance in the ’80s.”
