Chris Lowe Quotes

  • I feel like the Internet has really freed everything up to an extent, hasn't it? That radio maybe doesn't have quite the power that it had before.
  • I don't think you ever know in yourself whether you have gone mad.
  • Shameless self-publicity works, of course: living your life as a soap opera.
  • We never let go. Ever. Even with punctuation. It's frightening. I can't see anyone from any record company ever writing an email to Neil and not getting it back, with corrections.

  • I'm beginning to think that you should only be allowed to serve two terms, before madness sets in.

  • Dance music is about having a good time, and a lot of dance music is very serious now. When progressive house and progressive tech came along, it was kind of serious, but it's all context as well.
  • Stupidity combined with arrogance and a huge ego will get you a long way.
