Roll

Total Quotes : 197
Saturday Portion

During 'Saturday Night Fever' at the end of the first act dance number I tried to perform a split-jump, only I can't do them so I ended up on my ass followed by the most unsightly backward roll out of it, followed by the cast falling over in laughter and a good portion of the audience too.

- Alain de Botton

Good Proposes

Guitar music or rock n' roll or whatever you want to call it sort of goes away with trends, but it'll never go away completely. It can't die because it's so fundamentally attractive.

- Alex Turner

Hard Rock Anymore

Hard rock will always be hard rock, but you don't really know what is rock - and what isn't - anymore. I don't consider a lot of the pop things I hear on the radio to be rock n' roll. It's just kind of fragmented.

- Alice Cooper

Every Day Rock Music

My granddad was an evangelist, and my grandma, she was as tough as nails. She watched 'American Bandstand' every day when she was in her 80s, 90s. She loved rock music. I never had anyone in my family that was anti-rock n' roll.

Tell Buy

When people tell me they are going to go scrapbooking, I say, 'Why don't you make it yourself.' It's like chocolate-chip cookies. People buy the cookie-dough roll and slice it, and then they lay it on a cookie sheet. That's not making chocolate-chip cookies.

- Amy Sedaris

Work Kind

I wanted to be a stuntman. I've done stunts since I was 11, and wanted to be able to do them whatever kind of work I ended up in. I've had a horse roll on me, but luckily, everything stayed intact.

Rock And Roll About

When people talk about the '60s I never think that was me there. It was me and I was in it, but I was never enamoured with all that. It's supposed to be sex and drugs and rock and roll and I'm not really like that. I've never really seen the Rolling Stones as anything.

- Charlie Watts

Rock And Roll Dress

Rock And Roll Show

With how huge Yes was, especially in the '70s and '80s, as a touring band and actually playing at the JFK Stadium in Philadelphia to 130,000 people, which is the biggest-paying show ever in rock history, you would think we'd done enough for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Through Imposing

We weren't treated as prima-donnas. We had to roll up our sleeves and graft with the groundsman. Kids don't have to do anymore. That makes you appreciate things when it turns in your favour and you become a successful professional.

- Colin Cooper

Anybody Hop

Hip hop is the new rock n' roll, you know what I mean? And anybody who doesn't think that is just sort of living in the past. It's all just American music, really, when you get right down to it.

- Dan Fogelberg

Rock And Roll Hall

I worked with Dionne Warwick, did shows with Bette Midler, and then I did the 25th anniversary of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with Springsteen at the Garden. It was all important stuff because you want people to know you can work, you can sing, and you can still look good!

- Darlene Love

- Dave Grohl

Rock Without

Every actor I know pretty much wants to be a rock n' roll star, and we'd all give it up to be in a rock n' roll band, but we're never going to do that. But being in cartoons - that's as close as you get without being an action figure.

- David Costabile

Play Shame

You play a 'lowdown dirty shame slow and lonesome, my mama dead, my papa across the sea I ain't dead but I'm just supposed to be' blues. You can take that same blues, make it uptempo, a shuffle blues, that's what rock n' roll did with it. So blues ain't going nowhere. Ain't goin' nowhere.

The day you see a camera come into our courtroom, it's going to roll over my dead body.

- David Souter

Staple Use

I use something that is a real staple in the directing world. It's called a dance floor. You lay it down so that it's so smooth you can roll around, and you can put furniture on top of it. It's seamless and you don't see it.

- Debbie Allen

Stomach Dice

I know what it's like to have a dream. I know what it's like to roll the dice and say, 'I'm going to go after this thing,' and nothing turns my stomach quicker than acting teachers or acting schools that look at a bunch of dreamers and say, 'We can help,' when they know full well that they can't.

- Jim Parrack

Survive Grow

Bob Dylan enabled rock & roll to grow up and survive. He injected the power of language and ideas into the music.

Going Had

The Beatles just changed everything right across the board. They just had that right combination of clean-cut good looks - a cute band - but under that they had a real rock n' roll thing going on.

Kind Vibe

There's no doubt arena shows are exciting, but you don't get that up close and personal kind of vibe, and that's what rock n' roll is all about for me.

- Joe Rogan

Rock And Roll Lunch

So we got there at 6 a.m. We'd be shooting by 6:45. We wouldn't break for lunch, we'd just pass food around all day. And we would just rock and roll 'til 4, then Matty Libatique, our great cinematographer, would say, 'Outta light, guys' - and that was it.

- Joel Schumacher

Play Your

Any time you play your horn, it helps you. If you get down, you can help yourself even in a rock 'n' roll band.

Nation Before

Did you come of age in those sweet summers of the early nineteen-sixties, when the airwaves were full of rock and roll's doo-wop promise of joy and the nation was full of J.F.K.'s eloquent promise of a New Frontier? I did. Life seemed to be laid out before us like a banquet; everything was for the taking, especially hearts.

- John Lahr

Start Michelle

Well, one doesn't try to hold Cass and Denny and Michelle together. It's a useless task to start with. You just sort of stay out of the way and let things roll as they can.

- John Phillips

Making About

Most managers in the rock n' roll world... don't care so much about who's in the band as long as it's making money.

- Jon Anderson

This is the way I look at sex scenes: I have basically been doing them for a living for years. Trying to seduce an audience is the basis of rock 'n roll, and if I may say so, I'm pretty good at it.

Mirror Beginning

I grew up in the 1950s at the beginning of rock n' roll, and would strum a tennis racket in front of the mirror.

Jeans Maybe

T-shirt and jeans style now is where I'm at. Maybe a little rock 'n' roll T-shirt and jeans.

Him Foes

The lonely wanderer, who watches by the seashore the waves that roll between him and his home, talks of cruel facts, material barriers that, just because they are material, and not ideal, shall be the irresistible foes of his longing heart.

- Josiah Royce

Music Business About

When people say Jerry Lee Lewis invented rock n' roll, they forget Little Richard. People talk about Elvis Presley and forget he was singing black music. I don't blame Elvis. It was the music business figuring it could make more money from this music if it weren't presented from the original source.

- Ato Essandoh

Thought Beginning

'She's Dynamite' was a 100 years ago, and I recorded that song because the company thought that it was a great song and it was hot. That was the beginning of rock n' roll, and I guess they thought it would be a BB King version of rock n' roll.

- B. B. King

Not Good Enough Dice

With so many of our fundamental rights hanging in the balance, it is not good enough to simply roll the dice, hoping a nominee has changed his past views. It's not good enough to think, 'This is the best we can expect from this president'.

- Barbara Boxer

Fishing Dad

I'll paddle board, swim in the ocean, roll in the sand, soak up the sun, eat good food, be with friends and family and go fishing with my dad.

Rock And Roll Rock

Prince presented us at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

As far as arrangements after the basic track is cut, if I'm writing a horn arrangement or playing strings, I might arrange that, plan that out. Other times, I'll just sit and roll tape.

- Bernie Worrell

Own Bit

I'm not trying to hide from my past. I want to roll in it. Like a dog, rolling in feces, I'm rolling in the feces of my greatest hits - that's a bit of a wild way of looking at it, but I am a man, and we do like rolling in our own feces at times.

- Billy Idol

Bit Acknowledged

When I started out, everyone seemed to be adopting these names... Johnny Rotten, Sid Vicious. I wasn't really Rotten or Vicious or Nasty, so I wanted something a bit more funny - yet something that seemed real rock 'n' roll... something that acknowledged my ambition.

- Billy Idol

Doing Country

I've found that when you roll up your sleeves and join people in their daily work, they tend to open up quite a bit and let you know what they really think about the issues facing our country and what kind of job they think the government is doing.

- Bob Beauprez

Like Corridor

Most of the major consumer-goods companies roll out their marketing programs in the I-4 corridor. It reflects what America looks like.

- Bob Buckhorn

Dice Go

The soldiers that didn't come back were the heroes. It's a roll of the dice. If a bullet has your name on it, you're a hero. If you hear a bullet go by, you're a survivor.

Like Attractive

I like attractive people who aren't so terribly aware that they are attractive... people who aren't afraid to roll on the floor and make fools out of themselves.

Millions Of People

Everything that's rock n roll is ever meant to be is happening now. I need to get over the shock that that thing is actually happening and that thousands of millions of people around the world are watching.

- Bob Geldof

Dress Compete

There's so many companies that are spending so much money on 17-year-olds... I can't compete with that. I'm not that guy anymore, they can't dress me up and roll me out there and make me look good. I am what I am!

- Bob Mould

Bad Been

I don't roll like that but I've never been with a hooker either. Yeah, that's good to say in an interview cause I feel bad a little because people grew up watching me and that's a little disturbing.

- Bob Saget

Interesting Took

The Beatles changed music forever. They took rock n' roll from a medium that was about cars and girls and gave it context, interesting chord changes and true musicianship.

- Bob Spitz

Rock And Roll Rock

I grew up on the precursors to rock and roll, rhythm and blues.

- Bobbie Ann Mason

Come Read

I can't read music. That's not where I come from musically. I come strictly from feeling, and that feeling comes from rock & roll.

- Bobby Keys

Music Morals

Times were changing. Clothes were changing. Morals were changing. We went from romantic loves songs like I used to do to rock 'n roll. Now that has changed to rap. So, there's always a new generation with new music.

- Bobby Vinton

Sex About

All the songs we do are basically about one of three things: booze, sex or rock n roll.

The great moments of rock 'n' roll were never off in some corner of the music world, in a self-constructed ghetto.

Rock And Roll Go

There's a hell of a lot of freedom in this rock and roll circus... it's where all the freaks go - it's the environment for me.

- Brian Molko

Think John Coltrane

I don't think we listened to any rock n' roll at all in the early days. It was Miles Davis and John Coltrane 95% of the time.

- Butch Trucks

Young Neil

I wasn't a rock 'n' roll girl. I said, Neil Young, Neil Young, where do I know that name from?

- Carrie Snodgress

Perfect Sound

It seems women are expected to be so much more than men, which means we have to work that much harder. We're the ones under the microscope. We're expected to sound perfect. We're expected to look perfect all the time. We're expected to be style-setters, whereas the boys roll onto the stage in their jeans, T-shirts and baseball caps.

- Carrie Underwood

Needed Allowed

So often at home in the West Village, I'm like, 'Why aren't I allowed a horse?' I would keep a horse in a stable in my apartment, and I would fit him with rubber shoes, and we'd just roll him out. If I needed to go to a meeting somewhere, I'd just get on my horse and go across town.

- Cary Fukunaga

Rock Rock And Roll

Rock n' roll is not just a fashion statement; it is the attitude, and it has a political posturing as well.

- CeeLo Green

Celebrity Here

I don't conduct myself like a rock 'n' roll star in my day-to-day living. Am I a celebrity? Yes. Do people recognize me on the street? Yes, they do. But at the same time, it's not a media center out here. People get used to you.

- Dee Snider

Feet About

I spent the night on a sliver of rock high up on the east face of Long's Peak, climbing with Tom Frost, and slept at the icy feet of the Dru, listening to the lightning crack above me and the thunder roll down. I only did it to write about it. I would never go up on the Grotto Wall for fun.

- James Salter

Rock And Roll Threw

All of a sudden, someone threw me in front of this rock and roll band. And I decided then and there that was it. I never wanted to do anything else.

- Janis Joplin

Doing Your

When Phil and I started out, everyone hated rock n' roll. The record companies didn't like it at all - felt it was an unnecessary evil. And the press: interviewers were always older than us, and they let you know they didn't like your music, they were just doing the interview because it was their job.

- Don Everly

Happen Some

When I first started to beatbox on the microphone with the Get Fresh Crew, people were shocked. Some things are just supposed to happen and you have to roll with it.

Very Laws

The job of the Attorney General is very specific. My roll, as the legal adviser, is to defend the constitutionality of the laws as they're passed.

- Jeffrey Chiesa

Records Became

My mother's records were formative for me, but when I became a teenager, I wanted to find songs that she wasn't hip to. She was so hip, though, that I had to go outside rock n' roll - so for about 10 years, I only listened to hip-hop, house and techno.

- Jenny Lewis

React Show

What would we be without the fans? They're more important than me, because they make our sport great; they make things happen. We put on the show, but if people don't react to it, we are nothing. So, the fans, basically we should roll out the red carpet for them.

- Jens Voigt

Pattern Became

Our songs did not transcend being R&B hits. They were R&B hits that white kids were attracted to. And if people bought it, it became rock & roll. That's marketing. Why couldn't it still be R&B? The bass pattern didn't change. The song didn't change. It was still 'Yakety Yak' and 'Searchin'.'

- Jerry Leiber

Rock Loudly

I once said a poet has the right to sing as loudly and vocally as he wants to. Most poets should face a rock n' roll audience for one night to keep them honest.

- Jim Carroll

My Life I Write

I flip the turntables. I write a lot from the male perspective, but as a female. That's how I live my life. I can roll with the boys.

- Elle King

Love Hop

I'm a tomboy at the end of the day, so anything that causes me to have to run around, fight people, roll in the dirt, hop a fence - I'm all for it. So I really would love to do an action film.

- Emayatzy Corinealdi

Comedy Punches

Comedy was my sport. It taught me how to roll with the punches. Failure is the exact same as success when it comes to comedy because it just keeps coming. It never stops.

- Emma Stone

Star Well Known

At heart I cannot accept that I am a well-known rock 'n' roll star and one of the greatest drummers in the world.

- Keith Moon

If you don't know the blues... there's no point in picking up the guitar and playing rock and roll or any other form of popular music.

- Keith Richards

Shoes Fill

To fill the shoes of rock 'n' roll, because of the family I have, is a really hard thing.

Own Deal

You get to the point in life where you realize you have to roll up your sleeves, deal with the consequences of what happens, and carry your own weight.

- Ernie Isley

London Staying

I miss my friends in London, and I really miss New York. But I also miss the stability of staying in one place and being able to just open a drawer if you've run out of sticky tape and chuck a new roll in the holder.

- Essie Davis
