Whenever he visited Chicago as a kid, he had this game he'd play on the trains. He'd pick the ugliest, meanest guy, sit next to him, "and kinda get into his trip." If he grumbled, Eddie grumbled; if he sneered, Eddie sneered. By the end of the journey, they'd be shaking hands and exchanging phone numbers.

"Jeff works a lot on the artwork, and he's really into color. I'm sort of color blind, so I kind of resent color. I'm joking. But really, the music I listen to and like the most is black and white...Just really stark, emotional, direct stuff. Simple."

"Once we had this amazing jam, but when we ckeckedthe tape recorder the batteries were dead. We couldn't believe it! We were crushed because we thought this was really something. We call them "the great lost songs. We imagine how all these dead guys like Hendrix look out of their clouds, watching all these songs flying by. Probably they play them now. So at least we know we're contributing to thier heavenly concert."-Sky Magazine 1993

"I could run around that lake as fast as I could, just to say that i'd done it and had that experience, or I could sit here on the bus and look at it and think about it. But you have to do it, it make life worth..hell, man, this sounds so fucking stupid. Naw, you can't print this. Unless you're there, or unless you see it, or unless you hang out with me for a day, or unless we run that lake together." -Melody Maker 2/22/92
