To me, the only success, the only greatness for a man is immortality. To have your work remembered in history, to leave something in this world that will last for centuries… that’s greatness. - James Dean (Feb. 8, 1931 - Sept. 30, 1955)

There was no guidance at all on those early records. And very little need for it. What the fuck, this was the first time a band got together and just played. They changed my whole idea of recording. Before I’d just been doing sessions, 3 hours to get the tunes down. Working with the Stones made sense right away. Booked studio time for 24 hours a day for two weeks and if you didn’t get it, fuck it. The great new thing about them was they’d record a song the way they had written it. And if it didn’t work nobody thought twice about making it a tango. They tried every way possible. ― Jack Nitzsche: Working with the Stones.
