Favorite Quotes from Jack Black
“When you think about rock at its origin, and you think of the Beatles and millions of kids screaming as loud as they can and running as fast as they can towards the Beatles, there’s no one who is that kind of lightning rod, who commands that kind of power and has that kind of creative magma.” – Jack Black
“I’ve had so many hot, cheesy, corny loves of music in my life. I had a very intense Billy Joel period. So once you’ve really Joeled it up – there are some good periods of Joel; it’s not all hot cheese. But I can’t judge anyone else for their cheese. I’ve deep-sea dived in the Gouda.” – Jack Black
“The thing is, the kids always rebel against what the parents try to push on them so I’m going to pretend like I don’t want my son to hear the rock. I’m going to listen to it only in my private chambers. He’ll hear echoes of it and say: “What was that you were listening to papa?” And I’ll say: “Nothing son, you’re not ready.” – Jack Black
“I really wanted people to pay attention to me and like me. And the class clown thing, you know? There’s a weird desperation to the class clown when you really investigate it. Why are they trying to be the clown so much? They’re filling some kind of hole.” – Jack Black
“I just had a son and had to take him to the pediatrician and he measured his head and apparently he’s in a group in which only 14 percent of the population has a bigger head than him. Then she said: “Do you mind if I measure your head?” So I guess that means I’m pretty full of myself. Or that I have a huge brain.” – Jack Black
