The LoneStars / Press

“I'm glad there are a lot of musicians in Toronto pursuing technique as diligently as they possibly can, because it leaves this whole other area open to people like the LoneStars.”

M. Lewis, after playing a show with the LoneStars

“At Sun Studio in Memphis (‘Lurnin' to Drawl’ 1989) the Lonestars called to life what would soon be known as rock and roll with a sound that bore strains of the Grand Ole Opry and Beale Street, of country and the blues. At that moment, they ensured - instinctively, unknowingly - that pop music would never again be as simple as ABBA.”

"I know everything" Jerry, Owner/Producer, Sun Studios, Memphis

“There are several unbelievable things about the LoneStars, but the most incredible is their staying power in a world where meteoric careers fade like shooting stars.”

Rich Chalmers, drunk, at the Lonestars 25th anniversary party

“I wanted to say to the LoneStars and the country that these are real decent, fine boys. Sort of. ”

George, during the Lonestars first appearance at his bar the Eton House

“The LoneStars are important because they decorate the clock correctly and they are good with lower mathematics. Don't get me wrong – They are good!”

Dick Shrivels - The Coldwater Gazzette

“Without preamble, the three-piece band cuts loose. In the spotlight, the less than lanky singer flails furiously (sort of), every now and then breaking a sweat. In a pivoting stance, his hips swing sensuously from side to side and his entire body takes on a frantic quiver, as if he had swallowed a gerbil. ”

Bowmanville Times Magazine

“You're willing to pay the LoneStars a five dollar cover just for singing? Why, you can get a phonograph record of Minnie the Moocher for 75 cents. And for a buck and a quarter, you can get Minnie.”

Groucho Marx

“The LoneStars may not be a first-rate band, but they are a first-class third-rate band. If the future is 'traumverwirrten Katzenjammerstil' (nightmarish hangover style), then come meet the future with the LoneStars. They play very little poor music.”

Richard Cranium - The Village Idiot

“I like to think of the LoneStars as Clearasil on the face of the nation. Jim Morrison would have said that if he was smart, but he's dead.”

Heywood Jablowme - The Modern Liar

“I don't like the LoneStars music, but I don't mean to denigrate those who do. And for the people who like the Lonestars music, denigrate means 'put down'.”

Bob Noxious - The Pedantic Times
