Great Quotations: Bob Geldof

Written by March 17th, 2011 at 5:01 pm

“Rock ‘n’ roll needs to be against something. It can’t just be. It always needs a function in which to function. Of course there are great songs. There will always be great songs that don’t suggest anything other than being a great song. But … where are our Ramones or our [Sex] Pistols today? Do we need them? Yes is the answer. Will they be found? Maybe not.”

- Rocker, actor and activist Bob Geldof, in his SXSW Keynote address (via Billboard)
