Jon Fishman quotes :
I think that generally music should be a positive thing, I like Bob Marley's attitude: he said that his goal in life was to single handedly fight all the evil in the world with nothing but music, and when he went to a place he didn't go to play, he went to conquer.Jon Fishman
For me from a pretty young age up until about 21 years old hallucinogenics had a huge place in my life.Jon Fishman
When I go on stage man I just want people to have fun, I don't want people to think about their problems, I want people to get energy and nutrition and food from that so they can go back into the real world and work on their problems.Jon Fishman
