A lot of people in pop have taken acid and all of them have softened up and lost a lot of drive and basic ambition. Life can only be seen by being involved in real life, and not a lot of nebulous and ethereal ideas. Love is an aggressive and possessive thing - it's not just 'Forgive thy neighbour and be nice to everyone.

— Pete Townshend
