It could be good to have a little Quotes Section on the main site. It would be fun/interesting to hear what other musicians or other talented people in the arts have said about Frank Black/Pixies influence on their work. You could grab a few comments from the likes of Bowie, Yorke, Harvey, Bono off the documentary Gouge to get the ball rolling.

As in having a separate page that is full of quotes from other musicians or just a random one popping up somewhere?

Yeah like a link on the main page that says something like Referrals that takes you to a seperate page. I was just thinking it would be fun to make a nod to the fact that so many people (many more famous than FB/BF) keep citing him as an influence. And I'm sure a lot of the comments that have been made are more fun/interesting than the usual gushing adulation than you find other artists get.

Well, I can design the page if you want to accumulate all the quotes and some pictures to go along with them.

Ok I'll start scouting around. There's plenty on Pixies, less on FB era. I'll see what I can find to kick it off thanks.

Thank _you_.

If you can make it into an XML file that'd probably be best. I can show you how if you want. Probably a tag for the quote, who said it, maybe the source (Rolling Stone, April 1993), and the image filename ("images/filename.jpg"). It would help a lot if the images were cropped to all be the same dimensions.

Tag for the quote sure. Any particular dimensions? About time I figure out things like XML. I should be ok. Thanks Dean.

One of my favourite quotes I've heard about the Beatles was from
Andre Segovia.

Someone had suggested Segovia was "the father of us all" to which
Segovia replied, "They're not even my illegitimate children."
