Quote Of The Day: John Lennon Edition

“These critics with the illusions they’ve created about artists — it’s like idol worship….They only like people when they’re on their way up . . . I cannot be on the way up again. What they want is dead heroes, like Sid Vicious and James Dean. I’m not interesting in being a dead [expletive] hero . . . So forget ’em, forget ’em.”
John Lennon in a Rolling Stone Interview on December 5, 1980
