Rolling Stone Magazine:In terms of charismatic figures?
Bradford Cox:Hetero-centric, boring, scruffy 20 year-olds are ruining the fucking face of rock and roll, you know? There are no Patti Smiths or Joey Ramones, or Lou Reeds, even. Well, but Lou Reed is fucking playing with Metallica, whatever. There needs to be some vital something, and I mean, I'd like to try to be that, if possible, if I may be so bold.
Rolling Stone Magazine:What's missing?
Bradford Cox:Queerness. Homo-eroticism, boyhood.
