There's a lot of positive stuff to say about him... Why can't I think of any now? (laughs) Oh, here's something positive: Big Jim's best trait of character was that he has always been himself... which was his worst trait of character at the same time.
Patton quotes
Recently, a girl chained herself to me with hand-cuffs after a gig, just because I refused to talk to her. I politely declined, though. I am a well-bred boy. I don't want to be too specific, but... it got pretty ugly.
Patton
I got one entire song from fortune cookies (Land of Sunshine). On another one, I took words from different Frank Sinatra songs and pasted them together. Another one, I was just driving around and there was a piece of paper on the ground, so I stole it.




Patton Mike quotes
Revenge is good. I think revenge is healthy too, and if you can use music in that way, a sort of therapeutic way for yourself, it can't do any harm. So if King (For A Day...Fool For A Lifetime) is angry in any way, it's angry in a random, chaotic, healthy way. Like the guy who goes into a building, shoots a bunch of holes in the wall and then leaves. He didn't kill anybody.
Patton Mike
It's (RV) about a slob sitting around who doesn't do anything. I kind of identify with it.
Mike Patton quotes
Big Jim is over and out, as far as I am concerned.
Mike Patton
The governor wants the pharmacies to fill prescriptions, if given valid prescriptions, and I think basically as an organization we have the same expectations, but to also insure the right of pharmacists and the right of the patients as well.
Patton Mike quotes
Trey Spruance didn't want to tour for ages. And Dean Menta has always been our guitar-roadie during Angel Dust, and I remember him playing fantastically during soundchecks. During each gig, he was watching from the side of the stage, seeing Big Jim play stuff that he could play better.
Patton
Let's just say we're closer musical friends now. A lot of these people are strangers to me. They were out of sight but very much in mind.
Patton Mike
I've encouraged all pharmacists to have all hands on deck. It's going to be a nightmare.
Mike Patton
It's time, money and effort. For what?




Mike Patton quotes
Oh, have you seen Beavis and Butt-Head when they watch one of our videos and Beavis goes: 'These guys sound just like the Chili Peppers?' As if I haven't heard that one before!"
Mike Patton
Despite the aural onslaught, King (For A Day) is not an assault I think it's us being us, more than anything. I think we finally had the resources to be us on this record.
Patton quotes
Puffy's the only guy who's jealous. "All drummers want to be singers. I think it's a myth that the singer needs to be the focus. Bands perpetuate that myth. With somebody like Sebastian Bach it makes sense. Look at him. He could be in an Avon ad.
Patton Mike
We just wanna be the happy bums that we are. That's all.
