From the Archives

“I remember how much fun it was recording the first album… the [first albums we did] were cut pretty much live, and came off being a little bit rough when I listened to them. But I think the soul in them will stand the test of time.”
Quoted by Tim Stafford in liner notes to Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver: The Original Band (Sugar Hill SH-2210, 1999).
“[My band members must] have character, dependability, must be willing to do things my way. I expect them to represent me and the music I play in a professional manner at all times. The fans watch you offstage just like they do when you’re performing.”
