Cameron Crowe's Quotes

  • Making a big Hollywood film that really affects people is as hard as making a small movie on a credit card.
  • It used to be, like, the sanctity of rock was that you could never let a song of yours be used in a commercial. It was like, 'Oh man, we'll never let our music be exploited that way.' Now they'll call you up and say, 'You gotta use this song in your movie, man. It's the new VW ad! People love it.' And you realize, boy, have times changed.
  • I'm proudest of the fact that I've been able to make a few movies in the studio system that are slightly unorthodox and personal. But it's never quite as easy as you dream that it could be.
  • Little did I know that work-in-progress is a code for many things. In a press situation, it can mean the movie's not going to come out. It can mean the movie's not going to change at all, but if you don't like it we'll change it. Or it can mean the truth, which is it's a work-in-progress.
  • I mean, Internet radio, which is basically a guy with his iTunes putting it over the computer, is the only way you're going to get true eclectic music programmed.
