“How many records are you going to make in your life”
“How many records are you going to make in your life; how many are you going to remember?…You will remember the defining moments in your life, and if you’re really lucky you’ll be able to share them with others. You’ll be able to look at each other later down the line with the easy feeling that, for a time at least, you were ‘in’ a record – you were part of something, and, believe me, that is a sensation that makes a lifetime of bad pay worthwhile.” Rick O’Neil
