In Miscellaneous Quotes
Sometimes it gets to the level where you’d like to stop it, because it’s too much. But when you see a man or a woman with so many problems and they need your help, and if I can make a difference in their life, then I should continue.

In Miscellaneous Quotes
Afghanistan has come a long way, but if I don’t run [for political office] and other women like me don’t run then we will automatically give this space for the conservatives to rule the country… you allow them to have the opportunity. If you really want change, you have to take that opportunity away from them..

In Miscellaneous Quotes
It has always been our deep conviction, and we have always stressed the fact that the only solution for Afghanistan is democracy through elections. Each individual must have the right to vote. The day we will be in Kabul, we will organize elections under the auspices of international organizations.

In Miscellaneous Quotes
The behavior of the Taliban as well as their extremist attitudes do not correspond in any way with a tolerant Islam. We have always been opposed to extremist tendencies of Islam and we still are. We have not stopped insisting on defending an Islam of tolerance which would be profitable to every Muslim, in Afghanistan and in the whole world, and we will always defend it.

In Miscellaneous Quotes
Afghans want to regain their right to self-determination through a democratic or traditional mechanism acceptable to our people.… We are willing to move toward this noble goal. We consider this as part of our duty to defend humanity against the scourge of intolerance, violence and fanaticism.

In Miscellaneous Quotes
I think maybe we (Queen) were subconsciously influenced by The Beatles` albums, I think really, especially the later ones, like Rubber Soul, Revolver and Abbey Road. They were very eclectic albums.

In Miscellaneous Quotes
I picked up a guitar and found it very difficult and I sort of graduated to drums because I found them very easy - I suppose it was a case of natural aptitude. Mitch Mitchell was my role model at the time, and I still think listening to Mitch Mitchell, especially the early stuff with Hendrix (Jimi Hendrix), is just fantastic.

The first time I saw Led Zeppelin, Bonzo (John Bonham) just walked on the stage and just warmed up for about 10 seconds. Freddie (Freddie Mercury) and I nearly fell over we just couldn`t believe the power and the sound. People are still today trying to imitate Led Zeppelin, America is full of drummers trying to play like John Bonham.

In Miscellaneous Quotes
The greatest Rock`n`Roll drummer of all time was John Bonham who did things that nobody had ever even thought possible before with the drum kit. And also the greatest sound out of his drums - they sounded enormous, and just one bass drum. So fast on it that he did more with one bass drum than most people could do with three, if they could manage them. And he had technique to burn and fantastic power and tremendous feel for rock`n`roll. "When the levee breaks" is the archetypal heavy drum sound - it`s never been bettered - it`s like a steamroller, enormous bass drum. Simple but takes feel.

I saw Buddy Rich playing. He was wonderful, fantastic. I would say of just sheer technique he`s the best I`ve ever seen.

In Miscellaneous Quotes
Fantastic to write with. They have their place, they`re terribly useful to the musician, but they`re just another tool. They never will replace a good drummer. A lot of the bands that use them, I call them typewriter bands because basically they program the sample sounds with no real dynamics, and that dynamics is very important. And the records come out sounding very flat and very 2-dimensional whereas something with real dynamics and a good drummer can add another dimension - depth - to the band and that`s why bands that play together when they`re actually making the record will always sound better.
