“It’s tough having heroes. It’s the hardest thing in the world. It’s harder than being a hero. Hero-worshippers (fans) must live with the continually confirmed dread of hero-slippage and humiliating personal compromises in your standard and plain good sense about, oh, two to three weeks after the elpee masterwork first hits our turntables.”
Lester Bangs, “Chicken Head Comes to Roost”, Creem Magazine 1976.
