“While all of the other kids were listening to ‘N Sync, I was listening to music from the ’30s. I’m a bit of an old soul. I just really gravitate towards a nostalgia for a time when things were simpler. When beauty was more classical and glamorous.”
"We’re not heroes. It burns me up how people use the word ‘hero’ today. The heroes are the kids who gave 100 percent; they gave their lives. The heroes are the mothers who gave up a son, who carried him for nine months, and raised him to do right, and he does right, and at eighteen, he goes to fight for his country, and he dies doing right. That’s a hero…Bill and I get furious when we hear it used in the wrong context. We know we’re not heroes. The kids who went to war and never walked back through his mother’s front door, he’s the hero.”
Edward ‘Babe’ Heffron (16 May 1923-1 December 2013)
