Potent Quotables #3 (Volume One, Issue Two)

(An erratically maintained feature in which we share resonant quotations and pay homage to the most durable of all SNL-Jeopardy categories)

Hopefully this quadruple-header speaks for itself. Theory and practice:

Interviewer: What is the most important thing in rock n roll?
John Lennon: The most important thing is to just to be here now.

"Yeah, yeah, yeah!! C'mon!! C'mon!! C'mon!!"
-Oasis, "Be Here Now," Be Here Now LP

"That was a record meant to be listened to on that day. That's all it was."
-Noel Gallagher, 2009 (responding to suggestions of  pulling a Let It Be...Naked on his polarizing third album, Be Here Now)

"It was Alice in Wonderland meets Apocalypse, Now"
-Michael Spencer Johns, Oasis' primary photographer through 1997, commenting on the photo shoot for Be Here Now

Note the giant calendar marking the album's release date  of August 21, 1997 in the foreground
