Drive-By Truckers Quotes:
Jason joining the band made a big change not to mention everything we went through during the period of time that we made that record. [We] made a lot of changes in each of our individual personalities and as a whole having gone through all of that.
Patterson Hood 

When Adam's House Cat broke up in 1991, which was Cooley and my band for six years, I put my entire life, heart, and soul into that thing. I mean everything. I ended up getting divorced over it, and then the band broke up and I was left with nothing. I had nothing to show for six years of my life except for a finished record that still hasn't come out. And I went through a pretty deep, dark, two-year depression after that, [which] probably resulted in some of the earlier songs that became Drive-By Trucker songs, for that matter.
Patterson Hood
