JUICE MAGAZINE NOTABLE QUOTABLES:

“I never missed a day of high school in four years, although I was uncooperative… very uncooperative.” – JOHNNY RAMONE of THE RAMONES – Nov 1993 Juice Magazine #1 by Scott Daniel Ellison

“In politics and dealing with the media, the government, whatever, you have to understand that it’s the system we have to fight. The men behind the system are just that: human beings that suffer the same short comings of everyone else. It is the laws and the system that we have to mentally and spiritually prepare ourselves to overcome. We have to probe the minds of the enemy and understand them to conquer them. The youth are ready! Rise up! The time has come for a revolution!” – BAD BRAINS  – Nov 1993 Juice Magazine #1 by Alecia Mitchell

“We’re not a political act, we don’t try to beat anybody over the head with how we feel about certain things. We like to put out slammin’ records and dope tracks. We don’t devote whole songs to a social problem; we just mention it little by little, drop a little bit of bait and a little bit of candy. That gives us a mystique.” – TRIBE CALLED QUEST – Dec 1993 Juice Magazine #2 by Mark Duong

“We make boards for size of wave and not for where they break, as waves vary at each break of the world, going faster at low tide, slower at high tide. Each wave of every set is different, so our boards are made the same for a 2-foot wave on the East or West Coast as well as Hawaii.” – GARY LINDEN – Dec 1993 Juice Magazine #2 by Roy Turner

“Be true to yourself and don’t limit yourself. Eat at Cheddar’s. Props to East Coast pros and remember where you’re from.” – JAHMAL WILLIAMS – Jan 1994 Juice Magazine #3 by Pat Noonan

“It’s not that we believe in ourselves… We just don’t believe in anyone else.” – Maynard Keenan, TOOL – Feb 1994 Juice Magazine #4 by Alecia Mitchell

“I want peace, but I’m also prepared for war. Don’t just philosophize about stopping violence. Stop it. I’m not non-violent, then again I’m not violent. I am intelligent.” – KRS-1 – Feb 1994 Juice Magazine #5 by Michael Lawton

“If you love something, it can’t be taken from you. Whether it’s a person, object or anything you do. As far as the industry goes, we’re running it. We’re the kids, you know. What you buy into, you buy into and what you don’t, you don’t. Cause we’re running shit and it’s not an industry, so stop blaming the industry and get off your ass and make a difference.” – SCOTT BOURNE – Feb ‘94 Juice Magazine #5 by Chris Feasel

“Music, quite simply, is sex.” – DICK DALE – Apr. 1994 Juice Magazine #6 by Alecia Mitchell

“The only thing I want to intoxicate me is life.” – JOHN JOSEPH – THE CRO-MAGS – Nov 1994 Juice Magazine #13 by John Cowell

“All you bitches out there who want to be hard and listen to rap music and shit all the time, you should go out and buy a Cranberries tape… fuckin’ punks.” – CHET CHILDRESS – Apr 1994 Juice Magazine #6 by Chris Feasel

“If you’re a true surfer, you ride the waves, the ocean doesn’t lie, you paddle out and you confront the waves. There’s a truth there that’s misguided because people are so caught up in the images they see in the media. People need to get back into the brotherhood. The spirit. And let your surfing do the talking!” – BILL CURRY – Apr 1994 Juice Magazine #6 by Armando

“I just refuse to give anyone else power. There is no one who can make my life better or worse, and that’s the bottom line. If you think there is someone who can control your life, then you better evaluate yourself.” – MIKE MUIR – May 1994 Juice Magazine #7 by Alecia Mitchell

“Surfing is a very individual sport. You can go out and still be very graceful and have very radical maneuvers included in your session, or you can just go out there and totally try to kill everything in sight. Surfing is just what you want it to be. You can be an individual in a very crowded world.” – WILL ALLISON – Jun 1994 Juice Magazine #8 by Walker Golder

“I’m the type of motherfucker who will go to your house, smoke your pot, eat your chicken and borrow twenty dollars from you. I do that shit a lot of the time.” – GEORGE CLINTON – July 1994 Juice Magazine #9 by Michael Lawton

“I have this paranoid delusion that one day we are going to get a visit from some guy in a dark suit and sunglasses, who is going to tell us that we have gone too far.” – BIOHAZARD – July 1994 Juice Magazine #9 by Alecia Mitchell

“We were in the movie Skateboarding.” I had to teach Leif Garrett how to skate. He didn’t like me. He thought I was a low-life. I thought he was a Tiger Beat star and a candy ass and he thought he was the shit.” – TONY ALVA – July 1994 Juice Magazine #9 by Robbie Rhyne

“I’m not going to fight the system at all. I ignore them. They don’t exist – a bunch of blowhard, do-nothing turd factories.” – THE MEAT PUPPETS – Sept 1994 Juice Magazine #11 – by Alecia Mitchell

“We want to get people to think and to listen to the lyrics. I take pride in writing lyrics that don’t just say, ‘Baby, I love you,’ all the time.” – STEEL PULSE – Oct 1994 Juice Magazine #12 by Tony Jenzano

“It’s up to us to get past the stigmas that have been placed on our generation. Our generation has been plagued with the dilemma of having the cost of living so far exceeding the limit anyone can make, regardless of their degree or knowledge of a craft. We are so limited. The gap between our ways and means is more separated than it ever has been in the whole history of American culture. So you have to go out there and do what makes you happy. You aren’t truly free if you don’t do what you love with your life.” – BEN HARPER – Nov 1994 Juice Magazine #13 by Alecia Mitchell

“I got started in the industry by accident. Skip who does S.M.A., Santa Monica Airlines, showed me where to get boards made one day and that was about it. I started making boards, but I never thought I’d have a company.” – STEVE ROCCO – Nov 1994  Juice Magazine #13 by Chris Feasel

“Hardcore is about dignity and honor. It’s not bubblegum tunes about chicks.” – DOWNSET – Dec 1994 Juice Magazine #14 by John Healy

“They want to preach up a storm about how everything is terrible now: i.e. rock music is destroying our children, thus we exist. I am everything they could hate just to spite them. But at the same time, my point is, “Why is your way the right way? Why isn’t mine the right way?” – MARILYN MANSON – Dec 1994 Juice Magazine #14 by Alecia Mitchell

“Courtney [Love] just said that the first time she ever took coke, it was with me. But it wasn’t: it was Pepsi. Anyway, it wasn’t true. It just shows you where some people are at.” – MICK JONES – Feb 1995 Juice Magazine #15 by Alecia Mitchell

“It’s like every four or five years, hardcore goes through a cleansing, a dull period, and that’s what happened a couple of years ago. Now the bands are starting to get good again and they’re revitalizing the scene, making kids wanna come out to the shows.” – CIV – Mar 1995 Juice Magazine #16 by John Cowell

“Sid Abruzzi is God!”- Gail Greenwood – BELLY – Mar 1995 Juice Magazine #16 by Alecia Mitchell

“If you can make billions of dollars, you deserve to keep that and you shouldn’t have to share it with everybody else that doesn’t get their ass out of bed every fuckin’ morning. Period.” – LEE VING of FEAR – Mar 1995 Juice Magazine #16 by Jeff Jobes

“I admire people who instinctually stand up for what they believe in. That’s a powerful quality.” – QUICKSAND – Apr 1995 Juice Magazine #17 by Alecia Mitchell

“There’s an element of absurdity in what we do. I just think that humanity is pretty entertaining, so the lyrics are satirical, not condescending, but definitely vague. I mean, they are pretty substantial. It’s just never really clear as to what I am talking about, but that’s only because I don’t know myself.” – CLUTCH – June 1995 Juice Magazine #18 by Alecia Mitchell

“I think it’s funny to be called the Grandfathers of Grunge. I’m actually still too young to be a grandfather. But there are people at our shows that I could potentially be their father.” – MARK ARM of MUDHONEY – July 1995 Juice Magazine #19 by Alecia Mitchell

“After this Saturday, we’re going to jump into a bus with some other bands and cruise around the country on this skateboard thing, which I think is called Warped or some shit like that.” – BRAD HOWELL of SUBLIME – July 1995 Juice Magazine #19 by Fishbowl Dave

“Taylor Steele pretty much made us what we are today. Having our songs on the Momentum II video really helped us.” – FLETCHER of PENNYWISE – July 1995 #19 by Keith Byers

“Records are way different from CDs. We put extra songs on vinyl that aren’t on the tape or cassette. CDs are stupid, they cost half as much to make and cost twice as much to buy, Our covers are very retro and very thrown back. They look like they’ve fallen off a shelf at a thrift store. I do all of the art. Support vinyl!” – O of FLUF Aug 1995 Juice Magazine #20 by Lynn Bowman

“We just like to enjoy ourselves, in general, whether it’s music or artwork or watching The Simpsons.” – LES CLAYPOOL of PRIMUS – Oct 1995 Juice Magazine #21 by Kassi Day and Alecia Mitchell

“What good is being a Vegan if you’re an asshole?” – RAY CAPPO of SHELTER – Oct ‘95 Juice Magazine #21 by John Cowell

“We absolutely refused to play the stupid high school popularity games and a lot of our early songs comment on that. I guess our earliest ambition was to annoy the hell out of all the people in school who treated us like shit.” – MILO AUKERMAN of  THE DESCENDENTS – Oct 1995 Juice Magazine #21 by Charles Glover

“There weren’t that many rights that day. I guess I wanted to go right really bad, so I just got all crazy and went in the air. That was a miller flip.” – BEN BOURGEOIS – Oct 1995 Juice Magazine #21 by Mark and Gibber

“I’ve always felt like an outsider my whole fuckin’ life, except when I got into the punk scene. It’s like a batch full of freaks, so I fit in pretty good.” – MAT FREEMAN of RANCID – Dec 1995 Juice Magazine #22 by Spike

“The Clash did a lot of stuff on foreign policy, but to be honest with you I was just like every other person that was sedated with a blanket over their eyes and I was like that for a long time until I got out of high school. I was in the same boat as a lot of kids who really didn’t realize how fucked up things were. I didn’t know there were people out there with different ideas and views.” – BRAD WILK of RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE – Mar 1996 Juice Magazine #24 by Ed Calhoun

“Puppets don’t have ears.” – RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE – Mar 1996 Juice Magazine #24 by Ed Calhoun

“Piece together the perfect skater? Jason Lee and Gonz for style. Wade Speyer for his energy, and Chad Muska and Danny Way just because.” – CHET CHILDRESS – May 1996 Juice Magazine #25

“When I was younger, I just never was really satisfied. I always wanted to do more and more. No matter how far I got I always wanted to try and push it some more.” – TONY HAWK – June ‘96 Juice Magazine #26 by Gibber

“Music has the power to heal. It’s almost a type of therapy for people.” – ANGELO MOORE of FISHBONE – Aug 1996 Juice Magazine #27 by Alex Stewart

“We’re not just singing about girls and cars and our penis and our hot dog, so this is just another way of making people understand what’s happening.” – JESSE MALIN of D GENERATION – Oct 1996 Juice Magazine #29 by Robin Miller

“It’s the underground and I think we should learn to respect each other’s opinions and tastes.” – DARYL TABERSKI of SNAPCASE – Oct 1996 Juice Magazine #29 by John Zawadzinski

“Bringing people together who feel the same is cool, but the real unity is bringing people together who might not think or act the same together.” – RICK HEALY of 25 TA LIFE – Oct 1996 Juice Magazine #29 by John Zawadzinski

“Collectively, one band we all agree on 100% is Fugazi. We could listen to them over and over and over again.” – CHRISTOPHER DALY of TEXAS IS THE REASON – Oct 1996 Juice Magazine #29 by John Zawadzinski

“I turned around and asked a friend, “Who would be stupid enough to join a surf band?” – LAIKA AND THE COSMONAUTS – Oct 1996 Juice Magazine #29 by Tim Donnelly

“I never went to bed with the system and I’ve been playing since ‘55 and I’m still surviving.” – DICK DALE – Oct 1996 Juice Magazine #29 by Gretchen Dunaway

“Some people fear that hip hop is turning for the worst, but I feel hip hop has always emulated life. It’s just that, life is deteriorating, and family values and morals are just deteriorating too. That’s the reason why hip hop is looking like it’s messed up, but there are a few conscious people who are gonna be die-hards like us, The Fugees, Roots or the Boogie Down Productions, Public Enemy and Chuck D… diehards to the end.” –  ALI of A TRIBE CALLED QUEST – Nov 1996 Juice Magazine #30 by John Zawadzinski

“Is one lethal weapon more lethal than another lethal weapon?” – MAN OR ASTROMAN – Nov 1996 Juice Magazine #30 by Charles Glover

“Punk rock or grunge or what have you obscures the fact that it’s just rock n roll. It’s an idiom that started in America and took over the world.” – KARL ALVAREZ of THE DESCENDENTS – Feb 1997 Juice Magazine #31 by Charles Glover

“Unity is the most important thing. If you’re just going to destroy your own scene, you’re missing the message.” – ROGER MIRET of AGNOSTIC FRONT –  Aug 1997 Juice Magazine #34 by Chris Bors

“Burnside is one of my favorites. Not only the park itself, but the whole concept that a bunch of skaters came together to build it..” – REGGIE BARNES ‘ – Aug 1997 Juice Magazine #34 by Mark Griffiths

“We don’t pretend that we are anything more than we were when we started. It’s a high profile tour with a low profile attitude.” – KEVIN LYMAN [creator of WARPED TOUR} – Aug 1997 Juice Magazine #34 by Ron Strauss

“This guy thought he was Nikki Sixx. He got every single tattoo Nikki got, cut his hair like Nikki’s, changed his name to Nikki, then took Nikki to court to prove he was an impostor. So Nikki went to court and met this guy who just basically wanted to meet him and dropped the case.” – MOTLEY CRUE’S, Tommy Lee on the craziest thing a fan ever did. – Aug 1997 Juice Magazine #34

“It’s funny, Everyone used to talk about DIY, and I never knew what the fuck that meant. I thought it meant Drunk Youth or something. For us, it was a situation back when we started, there was no one else that was gonna do it. So of course we had to do it.” – MIKE MUIR of SUICIDAL TENDENCIES – Oct 1997 Juice Magazine #35 by Tom Hazaert

“I can’t remember how we came up with the name except that it was inspired by the Kinks. At the time, we hadn’t heard punk rock, not even the Ramones. We just wanted the name to be like a gang, where everyone’s a Cramp.” – POISON IVY of THE CRAMPS – Oct 1997 Juice Magazine #35 by Lisa Hill

“I don’t think anybody has a clue in the record business about what makes a hit record. And if anybody did, then everyone would have a hit record.” – PAGE HAMILTON OF HELMET – Oct 1997 Juice Magazine #35 by Ron Strauss

“Our greatest accomplishment is that we’ve done everything our way.” – PANTERA – Oct 1997 Juice Magazine #35 by Scott Dickson

“Music is a good word to live by. I do.” – BUTCH WALKER – Oct 1997 Juice Magazine #35 by Scott Homewood

“The main thing in life for you to do is to make as many friends as you can. The more friends you have, the better. The more friends you have ensures that when you die you have made yourself a reservation for a good seat. That’s how I feel about it. I want that good seat.” – JANE’S ADDICTION – Dec 1997 Juice Magazine #36 by Lisa Hill

“The punkest thing a band can do is look around their scene and their lives and say, “Okay, what can we do different? How do we make this our own?” – H20 – Dec 1997 Juice Magazine #36 by Shawn Murphy

“AC/DC is the epitome of rock and roll. In the last 25 years, they’ve put out the same record 15 times and it works. It’s loud, it pisses the right people off, and the right people dig it.” – FU MANCHU – Dec 1997 Juice Magazine #36 by Robert Braswell

“Support your skateboard parks. Don’t take them for granted.” – JIM MURPHY – Feb 1998 Juice Magazine #36 by Oscar Wagenbuchler

“I grew up living in Carolina Beach and there ended up being a skatepark right there called the Ramp House. I weaseled my way into sweeping the floors every day so I could skate there for free. Through there, I met tons of good people that came through all the time like Tony Alva, Sluggo, Rick Howard and Christian Hosoi. It was sick.” – CHET CHILDRESS – June 1998 Juice Magazine #39 by Jim Murphy

On underground full pipes. “We’re padding up and we hear this raging fucking noise, so we started freaking out. My friend was stressing so hard that he pissed his pants. We thought it was water raging through the pipe. We thought we were going down the big Kahuna or something. Then out of nowhere it just stopped. It freaked us out, but we felt so alive. It was one of the best sessions I’ve ever had.” –  SHAGGY – Dec 1998 Juice Magazine #42 by Jim Murphy

“I did eat Elmer’s glue when I was little.” – SHEPARD FAIREY – Dec 1998 Juice Magazine #42 by Brian Lentini

“If you like going really fast and busting airs, then skate vert. If you want to get technical and flip your board and do crooked grinds then that’s street. I say why not skate it all? You can’t limit yourself to any one aspect of anything. If you do, then it just gets boring.” – MOSES ITKONEN – Mar 1999 Juice Magazine #43 by Dan Levy

“We tagged along with Pearl Jam to the White House. They split us up and they got the better tour. I mean they got to meet the president. I was actually disturbed, y’know.

“We got chased out and went to the Rabbit Hole, which is really steep and vertical. One of my friends broke his ankle the first day he rode there. It was a really nasty way to start riding pools, but it was so awesome watching Tony doing upside-down off-the-lips. Then we just got into making boards out of necessity since there were really no good boards around. Then I started drawing on them. I drew on everything.” – WES HUMPSTON – Nov 1999 Juice Magazine #47 by Andy Kessler and Jim Murphy

“Most personal fun? Skating the concrete ramp in front of P.O.P. while Dick Dale, Ritchie Valens and the Crossfires played at the Aragon Ballroom. Fishing for rats through the knot holes in the pier decking. Skating pools and ponds after the Bel Air fire. Riding the long off-ramps of the 10 freeway before it opened and skating into the traffic on the operational 405.” – C.R. STECYK III  – Feb 2000 Juice Magazine #48

“Best thing about growing up in Venice… The surf and skate scene started there. Tom Blake built the first modern production boards in Venice at Thomas Rogers factory in the early ‘30s. Pete Petersen who was far and away the greatest all around waterman anywhere worked out of Santa Monica Pier crafting stuff like all fiberglass boards in ‘47. The Malibu crew led by Bob Simmons, Joe Quigg and Matt Kivlin built the first balsa and fiberglass boards in the late ‘40s. Dave Sweet made a polystyrene and epoxy board in 1947 and later crafted the first polyurethane production boards in the early ‘50s. Velzy who was on the peninsula in the ‘50s became the world’s largest manufacturer. Those guys invented the surfboard shapes and construction that are still the standard one in use today. Even the Hawaiians began using the Malibu styled surfboards.  The skate thing came out of that same surf clique. Skipper Boy was the first guy I ever saw or heard of that had people paying him to build custom skates. A couple of years later in ‘63 Larry Stevenson started Makaha and Surf Guide Magazine. He also patented the kick tail.  Baby Dave Rochlen defected from Makaha a little later and they did Hobie with the Hilton’s dad. It was a close knit tight scene. It still is. The industry, the media, the moves, all of it came from there.” – C.R. STECYK III – Feb 2000 Juice Magazine #48

“I was just another one of those groms seeing Venice in the magazines and I knew that’s where I wanted to be. I wanted to be in the mix too. I came out in ‘89 from Hawaii and the thing I like most about Venice is la familia. They take you in under their wing and you got a whole family of people that will protect you, clothe you and feed you; it’s family.” – UHURU – Feb 2000 Juice Magazine #48

“My main influences for surfing and skating were Jay Adams, Gramps, Paul Cullen and Arthur Lake.” – POLAR BEAR – Feb 2000 Juice Magazine #48

“I am trying to stay committed to the idea of the underground. I don’t want to just polish up this gift and sell it to somebody. I’m trying to keep it in good shape, so it can be handed off to someone else.” – IAN MACKAYE – July 2000 Juice Magazine #50 by Jim Murphy

“I think skateboarding is a way for people to reassess and redefine everything around them. So, for me it was the perfect segue into punk rock because to me punk rock was like reassessing and redefining everything around you. It was like looking at what’s given, looking at if it can be used, how it can be used and whether it’s any damn good to begin with.” – IAN MACKAYE – July 2000 Juice Magazine #50 by Jim Murphy

“I’m talking about punk rock as a revolutionary idea or a rebellious idea. Like here’s something that’s punk rock – FDR Skatepark in Philly. That’s punk rock.” – IAN MACKAYE – July 2000 Juice Magazine #50 by Jim Murphy

“We did this gig in San Pedro at a place called Dancing Waters. It was a really crazy club in a really crappy neighborhood. While we were on, there was this kid right in front going off and all of a sudden he jumped up and bit me on the arm. And I cracked him. I started yelling ‘Who bit me?!!’ Someone said, that was Jay Adams. I ran out in the crowd and I was like ‘Are you Jay Adams? and he screamed back ‘Yeah!’ and I said ‘You bit me! ‘and he was like Yeah!! You rock!’ I was so honored.” – IAN MACKAYE – July 2000 Juice Magazine #50 by Jim Murphy

“Adrenaline junkies, we got some micro geneticists, computer geeks, and of course some high school flunkies. We didn’t all go to the same school or make the same grades, but we know where the best best bowls are and the great days to skate. So don’t miss out on the designated days. Could be anywhere from Daytona to PA, we got Peanuts, we got Buttons and Cheeks, In Carolina, there’s a keyhole, In Ohio, there’s the beast, just to mention a few, not to say the least. So come on over to the East and we’ll show you how adrenaline’s done, where it ain’t about glamour, just excitement and fun.” – CRAZY JOE – July 2000 Juice Magazine #50 by Pat Myers

“I think calling Skatopia the Woodstock of Skateboarding is a little too obvious to actually say, cuz everyone is coming here to go to war and they’re not really interested in peace.” – SLOPPY SAM – July 2000 Juice Magazine #50 by Pat Myers

“Skating has changed my life in a very positive way. It has given me a focus in life that is pure and the determination to do things positive. It is my lifestyle it has affected more than anything. I wouldn’t change it for all the money or power in the universe!” – TONY ALVA – July 2000 Juice Magazine #50

“I was taking a test in history class in 10th grade and my test paper had a bunch of sketches of the Keyhole Pool and tons of lines drawn in. The teacher snatched up my paper and said, “Mr. Olson, this is not history! And I said, “No, no yet.” I was already making more money skateboarding than she was making as a teacher.” – STEVE OLSON – July 2000 Juice Magazine #50 by Jim Murphy

“I was picked Skateboarder of the Year. I picked my nose. I slung my boogers. T.A. threw his trophy in the trash. We didn’t care. Next thing you know, our popularity was even bigger than ever. “ – STEVE OLSON – July 2000 Juice Magazine #50 by Jim Murphy

“I have a dope little street skating kid named, Alexander. He’s a bomb little artist. He’s going to be some kid to reckon with in the skateboarding scene. His dedication is sick, he’s nice, he’s got manners but he also knows how to be a motherfucker.” – STEVE OLSON – July 2000 Juice Magazine #50 by Jim Murphy

“The amazing thing is that we do so much with our lives and we are such an amazing animal. We’re the only animal on Earth that leaves a trace of what we did and what we tried to build. We have our faults and I find human beings cruel and ghastly in a lot of ways, and yet wonderful in other ways. It’s the capturing of the moments of their history, their faces, the things they’ve been through that I love.” – BRUCE FLEMING – July 2000 Juice Magazine #50 by Robin Fleming

“Let me start by saying, I’m utterly disgusted with the former members of Dead Kennedys. I can’t believe they would turn around and piss on everything the band stood for and reveal themselves to be such utterly greedy and rotten people. Basically, they sued the shit out of me. What triggered the falling out was my refusal to let “Holiday in Cambodia” be used in a Levis commercial – Dockers, no less. I mean, to me, that would be the worst possible stab in the back I could give to everybody who’s supported our music and the vision behind it all these years.” – JELLO BIAFRA – July 2000 Juice Magazine #50 by Ray Flores

“If you want to own something with a soul and a piece of history, you gotta keep supporting the pioneers.” – JELLO BIAFRA – July 2000 Juice Magazine #50 by Ray Flores

“I’d rather be a competitor, because icons are over. By the very nature of an icon, it’s dead. I don’t want to be dead. I ain’t fucking dead. I’m alive motherfuckers, deal with it.” – LEMMY KILMiSTER of MOTORHEAD – July 2000 Juice Magazine #50 by Robin Fleming

“I thought The Damned were more punk than The Pistols. The Pistols were like a vacation band. Steve was a failed burglar. Rotten was that kid that you wouldn’t let your kids play with. Sid was just a fucking mess, Sid was doomed from the beginning. Cooksie just wanted to play, like Ringo, but he was a good drummer. But The Damned were like loonies. Dave used to walk around in that vampire outfit, with his wife dressed in what looked like cobwebs. I remember him standing with the silver-topped cane, three-piece velvet suit with the purple inside the cloak, the patent leather pumps, and the hair with the streak in it, with women falling about. I said “Don’t move Dave. I just want to remember this.” – LEMMY KILMiSTER of MOTORHEAD – July 2000 Juice Magazine #50 by Robin Fleming

“What is going to remain is skateboarding.” – TOMMY GUERRERO – July 2000 Juice Magazine #50 by Dan Levy

“If we can just put the pools out there, it’ll show the kids there are other ways to ride. It’s definitely part of the history of skateboarding and it will be here forever.” – DAVE DUNCAN – Dec 2000 Juice Magazine #51 by Jim Murphy

“Belmar’s was the first backyard bowl, and then Chicken’s. Chicken’s has been around for about nine years and Belmar’s is a few years older.” – RICK CARJE – Dec 2000 Juice Magazine #51 by Jim Murphy

“There’s no way you could ever clean up skateboarding. Real skateboarding can’t ever be cleaned up.” – DAVID HACKETT – Dec 2000 Juice Magazine #51 by Steve Olson

“The Dead Boys and their chicks come wandering into the surf shop asking ‘Where is Sid?’ Sid of course is nowhere to be found because he partied all night. I was like, ‘You’re not going to see him today. He is MIA right now’. And I’m a sixteen year old kid with a mohawk and in the floor right there where they were standing it said ‘Sonic Reducer’ in the concrete.” – SERG of DONKEYPUNCH – Dec 2000 Juice Magazine #51 by Merk

“Journalists can change the perception of history. Even looking back at American history, I wonder if what I’m reading is true. It’s too bad there weren’t punk rockers at the turn of the century or during the Revolutionary War.” – AGENT ORANGE – Dec 2000 Juice Magazine #51 by Heidi Fitzgerald

“Skateboarding is not a sport, will never be a sport, should never be a sport, it should be a lifestyle. Something that you love to do because you’re addicted to gravity. It’s about you and gravity.” – SKIP ENGBLOM – Dec 2000 Juice Magazine #51 by Heidi Fitzgerald

“Life is full of slams; you either lay there or you get back up.” – KALE SANDRIDGE – Feb 2001 Juice Magazine #52 by Steve Olson

“My personal motives were to help the kids and give them things I didn’t have growing up. I didn’t have anyone taking me surfing, giving me team shirts, sponsoring me surfboards and skateboards and taking me to skate contests. I don’t think anyone had ever thought of preparing these kids for a future in skating and surfing.” – JEFF HO – Feb 2001 Juice Magazine #52 by Steve Olson

“I love the limelight and I want to be in it, and skateboarding gave me that whole attitude. It was the best education of all time.” – BOB BINIAK – Feb 2001 Juice Magazine #52 by Steve Olson

“Skateboarding is an art. Fuckin’ art. You know, if it was a sport, I wouldn’t be skating with this fucked-up knee. It’s an art, because I want to do it.” – OMAR SALAZAR – Feb 2001 #52 by Dan Levy

“As a matter of fact, the only time I ever went to Studio 54 was on a double-date. I was with Susan Blonde. She was an actress and the hostess on something called Blue Channel, an early cable semi-hardcore porn show. She was my date and we were double-dating with Michael Jackson and Andy Warhol. I was like, “What the hell!” I didn’t care she was a porn star. And Michael Jackson was still black; he still had his original color. He had just done The Wiz so he had the big hat look going with patchwork on his bell-bottoms. We’re sitting there and I’m feeling like “I made it.” Andy Warhol was dressed like Lil’ Abner with bib overalls and no shirt. And Andy goes, “I’m going to make you a star. You’re my latest find.” And Michael Jackson passes me a joint. In Ohio, if we had enough marijuana to fill an aspirin, we would talk about it all week. We would call it ‘African trance weed’ and finally on Friday we would get together and we’d drink enough wine first so that when we each got our tiny little smidgen of a hit, we’d all think we were high. So, when Michael Jackson hands me a joint, I’m like “Whoa, you bet.” I’m looking around and no one is grabbing it out of my hand. If I were in Ohio there would be five savages grabbing for it trying to find some escape from reality. So I had a hit, then I had another couple of hits and passed it on. Then Susan Blonde says, “Let’s go dance.” I said, “I really don’t even know how to dance. I can only do it on stage. Don’t ask me to dance to some disco.” The dance floor at Studio 54 had this huge tower of disco lights like a countdown towers for drag strips and they had nine of them. It was like a tic-tac-toe board over top of the dance floor. They’d turn them around and rotate them slowly and lower them down and twirl them. I’m watching Susan dance and the song playing was “It’s Raining Men”. The towers of lights are coming down and there’s something wrong. They’re not coming down properly. They start twirling around and hitting people in the head. I’m seeing all these people getting hit in the head and there’s all this blood and all these people getting hurt. I run over and grab Susan and go, “Come on. Let’s go.” And she’s like, “What?!” I said, “I just saw all these people get hurt by the lights.” And then I look over and it’s all gone. And she’s like, “Are you okay?” I said, “I just saw all this blood and people getting hurt by the disco balls!” She said, “Did you smoke the angel dust? Oh, no. You smoked the angel dust.” I said, “What’s angel dust?” So, she put me in a taxi and got me back to my hotel room and we got to the door and I thought she was coming in and she put her foot on my ass and pushed me through the door and said, “Good bye, good luck.” I just sat there and fried all night. That was my date with Andy Warhol.” – MARK MOTHERSBAUGH of DEVO – Sept 2001 Juice Magazine #53 by Steve Olson

“The Sex Pistols had been kicked off the label and he took us in the studio and recorded a four-song demo that became the first EP. The president of A&M wanted a punk band that wasn’t going to pee on the wall and I guess that was us.” – THE DICKIES – Sept 2001 Juice Magazine #53 by Steve Olson

“I consider football and baseball a sport. Skateboarding is something I like to do.” – DANIEL SHIMIZU – Feb 2001 Juice Magazine #52 by Dan Levy

“I pretty much made a mark as the most hated surfer in the industry. Thanks to all the people that believed in me and everyone else can fuck off.” – CHRISTIAN FLETCHER – Sept 2001 Juice Magazine #53 by Steve Olson

“It means open palm, slap right in the fuckin mouth of the one trying to shove shit down your throat. It means fuckin’ up constantly. It means knowing good things come to an end. Everything sacred will get raped. It means ready to die. It’s the throttle held open – the endless death on a daily basis. Seize the day because there is no sweetness left in this world. I love you, can you dig it?”  – JASON JESSEE- Sept 2001 Juice Magazine #53 by Jay Adams

“When Stecyk and I first started the Dogtown and Z-Boys project, Muir came up to me and said, “You know holmes, I’ll give you all my support, but if you screw up I’m going to kick your ass.” – STACY PERALTA – Sept 2001 Juice Magazine #53 by Steve Olson

“Pipes are the last, and only uncommercialized genre left in skateboarding today. In the pipes, the underground rules, not the wooden vert warriors, or the street hellions, or the media blitz. It’s the only true pure rage in skating left.” – SALBA – Feb 2002 Juice Magazine #54

“Stecyk was commando photographer guy. Stecyk had everything to do with making Dogtown, Dogtown. We were just a bunch of kids skating and he wrote the articles and made it what it was. Without Stecyk I don’t think it would have been shit. I think he’s the one that blew it all up. I guess we knew how to skate and stuff too but Stecyk blew it up. There would have been no fucking Dogtown if it weren’t for Stecyk.” – JAY ADAMS –  Feb 2002 Juice Magazine #54 by Steve Olson and Dan Levy

“It was 1986 when I found Nude Bowl for the first time. It had been rumor city up until then and I had looked for it on at least three occasions, driving for miles in that stinking desert for hour in 110 degree heat. It finally took one weekend and good luck when we actually came upon her basking in all her glory. . . hardly any spray paint, still a death box, and original coping which grinded like no other. Thanks to Eddie Elguera and Al Losi. Micke, Spidey and me with filmer Scott Dittrich found it when we were filming the first Santa Cruz video. That part in the film Streets on Fire featured that very first session in 115 degree weather baking our brains so much that we left after an hour or so. We went back a lot in those early days, just us and whoever we brought. No rules, no bullshit, no egos or attitudes, just plain American fun in the sun. We’d B-B-Q while the girls would sunbathe and drink beer and skate all day long into the night with generators before anybody ever thought of doing it. We’d jam with bands and go off with no hassles or lame fighting that happened later. It was skate paradise literally.” – SALBA – Feb 2002 Juice Magazine #54

“Skateboarding is about going off. I want to watch skateboarding that’s exciting. That’s why backyard contests are way more happening. I just wish the events would have at least one contest a year based on aggression.” – TIM PAYNE – Feb 2002 Juice Magazine #54 by Jim Murphy

“The first song I remember writing was “The Ramp Song,” about my buddy Danny Moped getting into a fight with this guy’s dad who owned the house where this ramp was. I had stolen most of the wood for the ramp before we relocated it there and this guy came out and attacked my friend Moped while he was skating. Someone ended up with a bloody ear. The chorus went: “Just having fun, hurting no one, except ourselves and maybe your dad…” – JFA – Aug 2002 Juice Magazine #55 by Terri Craft

“How in the hell can you describe what Tony Alva means to the world of skateboarding? T.A. was the first skater to set standards. Nobody did it better or with more style than T.A. He was the first world champ, first in the world record books, first winner of the ‘SkateBoarder’ Poll and the very first to pull off frontside airs in pools. Nobody was a bigger rock star skater than Alva; Not then and not now. In his prime, you were lucky to even get to drop in while he was skating. if you did you’d better be able to rip, because if you couldn’t, you’d better just sit and watch. I can’t tell you how many times he showed up at a skatepark and everybody would just stop skating and take notes. The early days of pool-riding belong to him. he paved the road that all modern day skaters are riding down. The name Tony Alva is still burning bright in the skateboard world. Can you name anyone else who has been doing it as long and as good as Alva? Don’t think he’s ready to give it up anytime soon, because you’d be kidding yourself. I bet if you asked him he’d say it’s just beginning (again). With a new shoe from Vans and Alva Skateboards coming on strong, I’d say it’s a safe bet to believe he’s going to be around for awhile. ‘Yeah, T.A. You rule, homeboy. Thanks for all the memories. Keep it real like you always have. never say it’s over.’ Tony Alva is a skateboarder 4 life 100% for real.” – JAY ADAMS – Aug 2002 Juice Magazine #55

“All those dudes were bummed that I brought him to the pool. I said, “Fuck! This is Larry Bertlemann. He’s the one that paved the way.” That dude was fluidly ripping. He was 100% surfing. He was really cool.” – PAUL CONSTANTINEAU – Aug 2002 Juice Magazine #55 by Steve Olson

“The Dog Bowl was probably the best thing that ever happened to us, because we were always running from the cops, trying to skate pools. I used to hate that, because I could never really relax and get a good run. At the Dog Bowl, we didn’t have to worry about a damn thing. The only thing we had to worry about was, who had the next joint or who had the beer. The owner would watch us skate, which was a good thing, because that just made us really relax and think of the skating.” – SHOGO KUBO – Aug 2002 Juice Magazine #55 by Jay Adams

“Someone knocked the beer out of Keith’s hand and the next thing you know bodies were flying everywhere. For a solid minute, it was a huge washing machine full of skaters in our room.

Finally, someone went flying through our hotel window.” – HENRY GUITERREZ – Feb 2004 Juice Magazine #57 by Jim Murphy

“When there’s energy in the water, I have energy. I’m governed by the energy of the ocean. You know they say, at the hospital during the full moon that more women have babies. It’s like a big rush to give birth because all of the strength of the moon, the ocean and the water. You don’t even know the power it has. It’s got enough power over me that my whole life has been trying to devise a way to always be able to surf. I tell everyone regarding my plans that, everything is pending a 20 foot swell.” – LAIRD HAMILTON – Feb 2004 Juice Magazine #57 by Jeff Ho

“I just put the events on. Guinness and David Frost wanted some Skateboarding World Records and I had the sanctioned body of skateboarding because I had started the USSA (United States Skateboard Association) and the WSA (World Skateboard Association). They said, “What events do you have for world records?” I said, “Well, I don’t know. How about speed? That’s natural.” Then I had to come up with some other events. I said, “What about a height jump and barrel jump? They said, “Fine. We’ll be there with a film crew.” I got the permits for Signal Hill and did the first World’s Speed Run at Signal Hill.” – JAMES O’MAHONEY – Feb 2004 Juice Magazine #57 by Susanne Melanie Berry

I chose vert.” – TONY HAWK – Mar 2005 Juice Magazine #58 by Christian Hosoi

We should try and clean up our own backyards first.” – STEEL PULSE – Mar 2005 Juice Magazine #58 by Dan Levy

Of anyone on the team, I was the most rebellious. I don’t conform to anything that society expects of me.” – CHRIS CAHILL – Mar 2005 Juice Magazine #58 by Steve Olson

Rock n’ roll ain’t dead until I’m dead.” – BILLY IDOL  Dec 2005 Juice Magazine #59 by Steve Olson

“It was a talent of being able to see that society is a game and you can manipulate it. That’s what Malcolm McLaren always talks about. It’s about how you can change the perception of society and culture just by using your ideas in the right way. This is something that came with all the 20th century art, from Dada to punk. Punk is an art movement. It’s a manifesto. “I shall do what I want. If you don’t like it, fuck off.” – THE BUZZCOCKS – Apr 2006 Juice Magazine #60 by Steve Olson

“We were the first ones. There was no English movement. There was no New York movement. It was the end of the ‘60s.

When they saw us, they coined the phrase “punk music.” – NEW YORK DOLLS – Apr 2006 Juice Magazine #60 by Steve Olson

“We’re walking through the arches down this humongous flight of stairs, and I’m looking at 70,000 people going crazy. When I saw all of those people, I felt the rush. It’s so ridiculously amazing. When I’m up there, playing, and feeling the energy from the crowd, it’s a rush. It’s probably the same feeling as getting double overhead Teahupoo or something.” – ROBERT TRUJILLO of METALLICA – Sept 2006 Juice Magazine #61 by Jeff Ho

“I watched that scene in the OBX sprout to a massive, cool, super hospitable scene. And it’s not like these guys are 25-year-olds that have no responsibilities.

“I don’t want to see a Frito’s commercial with a skateboarder on it. It’s not in the spirit of skateboarding. We’re not supposed to be in the limelight. We’re supposed to be the scuttlebutt.

“I remember I had this map up on the wall that was just for decoration. When someone would call with a message from a record company, I would write the phone numbers on the map.

From that point, it was a pretty magical time.” – CHRIS CORNELL –  Jan 2008 Juice Magazine #63 by Jeff Ho

“We were starting to venture into the danger realms of skateboarding, bombing hills and stuff. We started to push each other.

I put it all in a sock and gave it to Christian and said, “Here’s $85.” And he gave me the best twin fin ever. It was amazing. Then I learned how to surf.” – JASON JESSEE – June 2008 Juice Magazine #64 by Steve Olson

“Well, it felt like a regular wave, except my legs really hurt afterwards. I didn’t know it was over 60-foot, so I wasn’t really thinking about what it felt like. I just had to make it. I knew I shouldn’t eat it on that wave. I had to make it.” – MAKUA ROTHMAN – June 2008 Juice Magazine #64 by Dibi Fletcher

“The stunt where I launch over the car driving directly at me and smashes through the ramp as I go over, is one of the scariest. The timing must be precise. It’s definitely a make or break stunt.” – RYAN SIMONETTI – June 2008 Juice Magazine #64 by Dan Levy

“She didn’t have a lot of dough, but any mom that would let you put a vert ramp in the middle of the living room was a pretty dope mom. It was sick. I had the coolest mom.” – MAX SCHAAF – June 2008 Juice Magazine #64 by Steve Olson

“We were cutting the GTOs record and we go to our session and there’s Jeff Beck on guitar, Nicky on piano, Aynsley Dunbar and the rest of the Mothers of Invention. Frank Zappa was producing.

“When I was watching Salba dropping in and rolling in on people, and just taking over, he was just dominating. He was blowing snot boogs out at people while he was dropping in with his leopard skin shorts on. It was so punk rock.” – JOHN GIBSON – June 2008 Juice Magazine #64 by Jim Murphy

“Music helps deliver the knowledge of those that came before us in language with context to insure accuracy.”  – PHIL ALVIN of THE BLASTERS – June 2008 Juice Magazine #64 by Steve Olson

“When FDR happened, I think everyone felt that way. It was like, “If we build this, other shit could happen.” And it did.” – DAN TAG – Dec 2008 Juice Magazine #65 by Jim Murphy

“Those guys, the Z-Boys, and all the Venice guys like Polar Bear, Jimmy Plumer and George Wilson and the whole Z-Flex team originated skateboarding.

“Everything seemed to be going away, but Red and those guys were just going at it under the bridge at Burnside. It was amazing that those guys could build that stuff down there. I don’t think at the time anybody realized what a historic moment it was, and the significance to that thing being built there like that.” – MARK CONAHAN – Dec 2008 Juice Magazine #65 by Jim Murphy

“My goal is to take a timeless photo. That’s the hardest thing to do.” – IVORY SERRA – Dec 2008 Juice Magazine #65 by Steve Olson

“Then I saw all the skaters that owned businesses take the easy way out too. Rather than supporting the core people that built it up and making sure that they remained important to skating, the skaters that owned businesses went for the profit instead.” – JEF HARTSEL – Dec 2008 Juice Magazine #65 by Jim Murphy

“The next generation was all about the streets. The skate industry justified their actions by saying that not every skater had a half pipe in his backyard. Suddenly, the very reason that grew skateboarding was the very reason why they could also drop it.” – JEF HARTSEL – Dec 2008 Juice Magazine #65 by Jim Murphy

“I love skateboarding because it’s never ending. Spots are never ending. There are new parks and new terrain. I’ll just love it until I die. I love the feeling of locking into a Smith grind on whatever.” – PAT DUFFY – Dec 2008 Juice Magazine #65 by Steve Olson

“I would ride a six-foot unicycle down the street with a raccoon on my shoulder. My mom worked in the salon down the street. She was at the shop and one of her clients came in and said, “You will not believe what I just saw coming down the street.” My mom would have to say, “Oh, my son is coming to see me.” – WALDO AUTRY – Dec 2008 Juice Magazine #65 by Steve Olson

“We’d try something, push it and get broken a little. I never thought about it. I just did it all the time. If someone was doing this, I was going to do that. If someone did that, I had to do that too. It was in me to push it. If they were going to jump over a car, I was going to jump over a garage.” – WALDO AUTRY – Dec 2008 Juice Magazine #65 by Steve Olson

“I got a phone call one day from some guy that said, “Is this Waldo Autry? This is Bud Browne. I’d like to put you in the movie Going Surfin’. I was like, “Whoever this is, that’s kind of funny.” I think I cussed at him and hung up.” – WALDO AUTRY – Dec 2008 Juice Magazine #65 by Steve Olson

“What’s funny is that I was “anti-luge” at Signal Hill.

I had a big banner that said, “Skateboarders do it standing up.” – WALDO AUTRY – Dec 2008 Juice Magazine #65 by Steve Olson

“With Logan, I ended up with the very first female signature model skateboard, which was a milestone in itself. I stayed loyal to the Logan team for many years, even through all of the years when everyone was jumping ship, chasing the money and not giving a rat’s ass about the quality of a product.” – LAURA THORNHILL – Dec 2008 Juice Magazine #65 by James O’Mahoney

“There are no 401k’s for tattoo artists. There was no retirement or medical insurance. I chose something knowing I might be broke for the rest of my life, but I was going to be happy. All of this that’s happening now, with how huge skateboarding, surfing and tattooing has gotten, it’s all just icing. It’s a kind of pay-off for the guys that followed their passion.” – TIM HENDRICKS – Dec 2008 Juice Magazine #65 by Steve Olson

“Those were the days when skateboarding was illegal, so the cops were chasing you. Skateboarding wasn’t about making money. It was just cool and kind of outlaw. I liked that it was a black sheep kind of subculture.” – MATT HENSLEY – Dec 2008 Juice Magazine #65 by Steve Olson

“I don’t have to sell my soul to keep playing rock n’ roll.” – HANK WILLIAMS III – Dec 2008 Juice Magazine #65 by Steve Olson

“If that seed was in you to begin with to seek out new things and go another route, what happened? Why are you still not seeking out new things? Why aren’t you going to some show that some kid is putting on in his basement? Why aren’t you going out to see brand new bands that you have no clue about?” – TIM KERR – Dec 2008 Juice Magazine #65 by Steve Olson

“The Ramones had played Cleveland, so we had gone to see them and met them. We made friends with them at their show. Stiv was talking to Joey every now and then. He’d call just to say hi or whatever. Then Joey said, “You know you guys should come up and play CBGBs. Joey got all these people like Roberta Bailey, Danny Fields, “Legs” and all the people from the magazines and brought them down to see us. I remember on the third song, Bators went to jump up on my amp and it was on wheels and it went right off the back of the stage.” – CHEETAH CHROME of THE DEAD BOYS – Dec 2008 Juice Magazine #65 by Steve Olson

“The greatest thing about being a surfer is that you have hope every single day. You wake up every morning and have that promise of getting a fantastic wave that will make your day. I don’t think there are a lot of sports that are comparable to that. It’s incredible.” – EVAN SLATER – Dec 2008 Juice Magazine #65 by Dibi Fletcher

“Skateparks aren’t just something the city wants to do. It’s not just something that we did. It’s something that the community as a whole did together. Whether it’s a mom or dad that shows up and brings us lunch or a local that brings us some appetizers, the city people are great. We have moms that cook us food. It’s not just the city and us. It’s everybody.” – LIL EDDIE LAWRENCE – Dec 2008 Juice Magazine #65 by Jim Murphy

“My dad was like, “I’m so happy you followed your heart and you did what you love doing. I can’t tell you where you might have been if you’d listened to me.” It was a cool thing. I was stoked.

You go to the rock show. The gate is open. Be true and that’s it.” – CRAIG JOHNSON – Sept 2009 Juice Magazine #66 by Jim Murphy

“As far as anyone building skateparks, the more the better as far as I’m concerned. Let’s concrete the earth and leave some stash in the grass for nap time. I can critique very strictly or just say it’s fun, because a shitty skatepark can’t keep a good skateboarder down.” – PETER GUNN – Sept 2009 Juice Magazine #66 by Mark Scott

“I beat Tony Hawk, Christian Hosoi and Omar Hassan in a high air contest in Japan. Somehow Mark Gonzales heard that I’d beaten Christian in the high air contest, so he faxed a handwritten note that said, “If I were Wade, I would have went a little lower for Christ.”. – WADE SPEYER – Sept 2009 Juice Magazine #66 by Jim Murphy

“I nerded out on it and tried to see how high I could ollie. I tried to make it up two stairs and then three stairs. I’d see how far up the stairway I could axle stall and see how high I could ollie. It’s not like anyone set out to change anything. It was just hanging out and skateboarding.” – NATAS KAUPAS – Sept 2009 Juice Magazine #66 by Steve Olson

“I got more serious about building molds and learning how to press them. I built a press in my bedroom out of 2x6s, with a hydraulic car jack inside of it. Before that I pressed boards under the tire of my Mom’s car.” – PAUL SCHMITT – Sept 2009 Juice Magazine #66 by Steve Olson

“You want to be able to say that you lived life to the fullest. When I’m 70, I want to be able to say that I skated hard. I surfed a thousand days in my life. I wrote good movies. I had fun with my friends. I laughed. That’s what drives me.” – SCOTT CAAN – Sept 2009 Juice Magazine #66 by Steve Olson

“The infrastructure of America is totally destroyed. Rape is rampant. Poverty is everywhere. When I was filling out my kid’s paperwork at school, it said, “Where do you live? Do you live in a house? Do you live in an apartment? Do you live in a car or a park?” – JACK GRISHAM of T.S.O.L. – Sept 2009 Juice Magazine #66 by Steve Olson

“On any given night, there would be Jane Fonda in one corner, Alice Cooper in the other corner, Warhol in another with David Bowie thrown in. It was just different because it all mixed and meshed together.” – BEBE BUELL – Sept 2009 Juice Magazine #66 by Steve Olson

“If I see myself in a magazine, I’m stoked. It just makes me want to try harder and get an even better shot. I don’t see it as I’m better. I see it as I need to try harder to get better shots.” – KALANI DAVID – Sept 2009 Juice Magazine #66 by Jay Adams

“That’s why the dudes in the industry that are seriously killing it and getting all the buzz these days can skate everything and make it look really cool. The all-around dues that skate everything are the best in the biz.” – GARETH STEHR – May 2010 Juice Magazine #67 by Steve Olson

“It was, basically, the old surfer guys that were starting to skate in pools. They had waterskis and everything else. They were skating barefooted.

“This superficial, arti-fuckin’-ficial world that we live in is ours for the taking. These people aren’t strong enough to hold us back.

“The only weight I lift is when I pick up my skateboard to drop in.” – GREYSON FLETCHER – Feb 2011 Juice Magazine #68 by Jason Jessee

“The London scene was pretty good. The Sex Pistols and the Clash were it. Not only did Malcolm steal the scene, the music was great. They were trying to be even more punk than we were in New York.

“That’s how we learned to skate street. It’s like you’re going from this ramp to this ramp. They might be five miles apart, but there’s a curb here, so you do a board slide on it. You didn’t stop and session. You just hit it one time on the way to the ramp.” – J.J. ROGERS – Dec 2011 Juice Magazine #69 by Andy Roy

It was a time when they only had activities that were spiritually and significantly important to the culture.” – CRAIG STECYK III – Dec 2011 Juice Magazine #69 by Dan Levy

“I don’t think about sports at all. I would be more inclined to dissect skateboarding as a viable form of alternative transportation. I don’t think it needs to be anything other than what it is.

“We were part of a radical political group and we took a militant stance against the establishment and made some very bad decisions. One of them was that violence could be used to make positive change. It was a mistake we made. We thought we were doing the right thing, but as it turns out, it was an error in our thinking and somebody blew up the CIA office.

“You have to find a really good place that’s comfortable for you as a business, where everybody is making a good living and everybody is having fun. If you’re not having fun in the skateboard business, get the fuck out.” –  RICHARD NOVAK – Nov 2012 Juice Magazine #70 by Steve Olson

“That’s really how you stay ahead in this game. You find great people, treat them the best you can and wake up every day and do what has never been done.” –  RICHARD NOVAK – Nov 2012 Juice Magazine #70 by Steve Olson

“The skateboarding community will drag you out of the bottom of a pool.” –  DAVE TUCK – Nov 2012 Juice Magazine #70 by Merk

“Seeing your friends there and getting to skate something cool is fun. On the other hand, winning money is good because then I get to build more at my house.” –  KEVIN KOWALSKI – Nov 2012 Juice Magazine #70 by Mark Scott

“There were no limits to what you could progress to in skateboarding, because it’s such a creative sport. That’s where the thing that separates skateboarding from a lot of other sports. It’s an artistic sport that applies itself to its surroundings.” –  STEVE CABALLERO – Nov 2012 Juice Magazine #70 by Dan Levy

“Whatever you have a passion for in life is what makes life happen.” – JIMMY GANZER – June 2013 Juice Magazine #71 by Steve Olson

“I make my kids have punk rock moments. They have to sit with me and watch YouTube of the Dead Kennedys, they have to do it. I’m like, “No, there’s no option. You’re going to sit here and watch the Dead Kennedys right now because this is punk rock.” –  DEREK KRASAUSKAS – Nov 2012 Juice Magazine #70 by Jim Murphy

“There was supposed to be a full pipe and pools that they never built. All in all, they accidentally made a dream come true with the snake run. The builder knew what he was trying to do, but he didn’t realize what skateboarding would do with it. It became a full on ollie training ground. We were just flying over these hips everywhere.” – ALLEN LOSI – June 2013 Juice Magazine #71 by Jim Murphy

“Malcolm always encouraged us to write our own stuff. When I was just learning guitar, I had a short attention span, and when you try and learn a song, you do the first few chords and it’s easy and then it gets more complicated and you say, “Fuck that,” and you end up doing your own version. Pretty soon, you’re doing your own song, so it’s easy.” – GLEN MATLOCK of SEX PISTOLS – June 2013 Juice Magazine #71 by Steve Olson

“We’re not encouraged to grow up. Youth is like the drug. You don’t want to look old. You don’t want to seem old. It’s so strange. Your body is telling you one thing and your mind is telling you another, and you’re tearing yourself apart. So I am getting older, but I have a youthful outlook on life.” – JAMES HETFIELD of METALLICA – June 2013 Juice Magazine #71 by Steve Caballero

“Skateboarding is an individual sport. You basically master being a lone wolf. Being a lone wolf, you learn that there is so much more appreciation for yourself, your thoughts and your time. That’s why most people that really excel in anything don’t have a lot of wasted time or wasted people around them. They tend to gather with people that are likeminded and making things happen in their lives and then they thrive off each other. Those are the kinds of people that I met in skateboarding.” – JERRY VALDEZ – June 2013 Juice Magazine #71 by Steve Olson

“I learned that it’s not just about the skating that can help promote what you’re doing. I learned about treating people well and giving back. I learned about being a team manager or a team curator, and how much it means to believe in someone and believe in their effort.” – TONY HAWK – June 2013 Juice Magazine #71 by Dan Levy
