The twenty best concert quotes of 2012

The twenty best concert quotes of 2012
Brandon Marshall

We go to concerts for the music, but the best moments are often unrehearsed. For some bands, a show is just a series of songs -- the moments between, nothing but time to be killed until the music begins again. But we don't go to concerts to kill time-- and, truly, we don't go to hear songs, either, because we can do that much more comfortably and with less money at home, where beer doesn't cost $5 a glass. The reason we go to shows is to connect with a group that first connected with us. Whether they're funny, sentimental, crude or inspiring, some musicians do it better than others. Here are the twenty best quotes from concerts this year.
