Read through the most famous quotes from Greg Ginn

I didn't want to wait around for some business entity to come around and give me money and tell me what to do. We just started releasing records as best we could.

I still think the best metal bands have a blues feel. The first Black Sabbath album is kind of a bludgeoning of blues. Deep Purple also started out as a blues band.

Most good things happen with time; especially music, which needs time to breathe and to find its own way.

— Greg Ginn

Punk rock really came out of N.Y. as a philosophy before the groups were ever recorded. I had a kind-of intellectual interest in the idea of creating a new scene that could be a grassroots thing.

— Greg Ginn

As a label, you have to treat every group and every record as a unique entity. I think that that has been our success, rather than relying upon a fan base.
