(JP: 'When I was listening to this next record at home during the week, I was having a bit of a disagreement with our William about something, and I was making a forceful point, as we fathers do, and he waited until I'd finished speaking, and he said to me, "For God's sake, Dad! Why do you have to exaggerate absolutely everything you say about anything?"')
(JP: 'In the BBC van, as I say, of course, backstage at Reading, the turntable that I play that record on is so far away it's in a different parish, so if I sound slightly out of breath, it's because I've been rushing down to the other end of the van to put a record on the turntable.')

(JP: 'This is just about everybody in the world's favourite record at the moment.')
(JP: 'Now, if you live to be, I dunno, 70, 75 years old, and you're 20 now, that is going to be one of the records that you listen to when you're 70 and you say to yourself, "We had some truly great records when I was a kid." I mean, it is a truly majestic record, I think....I've not even heard the other side of it yet, because every time I put the CD into the machine, I keep playing that one over and over again.')
(JP: 'I think you have to say that once again the highlight of the day at the Reading Festival, in spite of all the other extraordinary things that have gone on, was the performance by Hole. I was backstage when Courtney Love arrived, obviously the centre of attention. It was all American, in fact, backstage: the only thing you heard spoken was American. Courtney arrived in a London taxi...which was kind of a dramatic entrance to what you'd normally expect. I have to say when she got out of the taxi she was staggering slightly and sort of supported by security people...disappeared into a van somewhere, but then came back out and went onto the stage, and it was yet another, as with last year, another absolutely electrifying performance. The thing about Hole, as far as I'm concerned...they can be alarming, disconcerting, they can be embarrassing at times, but you want to see and hear every second of it.')
