“I mean that our infancy was like the kids movie. It’s New York, we roam about, we drink beer on stoops. You know some of the Strokes kids, yes, they were successful for their parents — but we did not live like yuppies. When I was eight, my parents divorced. I’ve been growing up alone with my family.
We didn’t say, ‘Oh, let’s put all on the leather jackets and pretend fun’ when we started the band, do you know what I’m going to say? That was who we were. We were who.”
When they hit the band in late 2000, Rock and roll had been shouting for years. They were the most thrilling thing since CBGB’s heyday with their skinny jeans, 1970’s haircuts and cherubic pout.
