Famous Daniel Johns Quotes about life..

  • It's fine to read a bad review if it's obvious they have listened to it and they're not just being vindictive.
    Daniel Johns Quote
  • We’ve never been the kind of group that's the hippest band to like.. we’ve never been the band of the moment. I feel like we’re the sort of band that’s constantly avoiding having an identity, as opposed to searching for one. I’ve never tried to find that Silverchair sound.. ever. I don’t ever want to have a musical identity. I just want it to keep changing.
    Daniel Johns Quote
  • When you get sick like that, it puts everything into perspective and makes something like being a celebrity who’s married to another celebrity and gets ‘paparazzied’ or whatever it is you call it, seem like a pretty minimal kind of problem.
    Daniel Johns Quote
  • I’ve always been trying to escape the perception of us being the teen grunge sensations from Down Under.
    Daniel Johns Quote
  • It's just ridiculous. I never had it that much until I married Natalie Imbruglia and we moved to London. The first eighteen months was like, "You're kidding?" You'd just be getting a coffee and photos would end up in New Weekly or something. It's weird, because you never agreed to being in these magazines. I hate the idea that you don't have to approve these things. (Daniel Johns talking about the paparazzi)
