Pop stardom is not very compelling. I'm much more interested in a relationship between performer and audience that is of equals. I came up through folk music, and there's no pomp and circumstance to the performance. There's no, like, 'I'll be the rock star, you be the adulating fan.'

What's amazing is that I'm recognized all over the world through 'Red Dwarf.' British fans are exceptional, but the American fans are something else. Some of them fly 500 miles to stand in line for three hours, just to meet me, then when they do they collapse. It makes you feel like a rock star!

Rock Wanted

I wanted to be a rock star.

My Life Jewish

You can find old Jewish newspapers from Detroit that have my promotional ad in them. It was a totally insane time in my life. Paul Rudd was also a bar mitzvah emcee, you know? It was like being a local rock star in Detroit.

- James Wolk

Newspaper Comics

Read something of interest every day - something of interest to you, not to your teacher or your best friend or your minister/rabbi/priest. Comics count. So does poetry. So do editorials in your school newspaper. Or a biography of a rock star. Or an instructional manual. Or the Bible.

- Jane Yolen

Love Doing

When I started out, I wanted to be Billy Joel. The plan was to be a singer-songwriter of that ilk, and, then, I got waylaid - that's probably an unfair way to say it - from being a rock star by the musical theatre stuff, which I love doing.

- Jason Robert Brown

Rock Always

What I always wanted to do was to be a rock star.

I'm not a rock star. Sure I am, to a certain extent because of the situation, but when kids ask me how it feels to be a rock star, I say leave me alone, I'm not a rock star. I'm not in it for the fame, I'm in it because I like to play.

- Eddie Van Halen

Famous Explain

It's funny, when bands or younger musicians ask me: 'So, what does it take to make it?' Well, first explain to me what you mean by 'making it': Do you want to be a rock star or do you want music to be your livelihood?

- Eddie Van Halen

Politics Bizarre

You know, rock stardom... I have a hard time discussing that because I don't really accept it. It's not really that tangible. What's really bizarre is how it's used as a thing - you know, 'He's the rock star of politics,' 'He's the rock star of quarterbacks' - like it's the greatest thing in the world.

- Eddie Vedder

Famous Becoming

I really had little interest in becoming famous. When I write my book, it will be my guide to avoid becoming a rock star.

Star Bono

Bono is my inspiration - not only as a rock star but as a humanitarian. We aren't just put on this earth to sell records. Maybe it's because of my upbringing, but I do consider myself a moral guy.

- Jesse McCartney

Dress Mood

Style to me is a mix between rock star chic-quirky-sexy and expressive. I always dress for my body type, as it's important to highlight your pluses! I like edgy clothes that have character.

- Jiah Khan

- Karen O

Love Other

Every day I'd say I look different. Sometimes I look really formal, sometimes I love the classic Stella McCartney, Chloe Sevigny and Gwyneth Paltrow thing. Other days I like being rock star and wearing leather jackets and studs. I love wearing Burberry - it's the perfect combination of formal and punky.

- Ellie Goulding

Envy Occupation

I've always had rock star envy. Unfortunately, writing is a pedestrian, tame occupation done while sitting in coffee-stained pajamas in front of a computer rather than prowling around a huge stage in sweaty leather pants, so I have to get my kicks vicariously.

- Kate Christensen

Rock Next

In my next life, I'm going to be a rock star. I was a ballerina in my last life.

Star Very

- Katey Sagal

Star Mostly

I wanted to be a rock star. I dreamed of it, and that's all I dreamed of. To be more accurate, I wanted to be a pop star. This was in the late '80s. And mostly, I wanted to be the fifth member of Depeche Mode or Duran Duran.

- Eric Whitacre

Rock Some

I definitely don't want to achieve some kind of rock star status.

Rock Demeanor

I don't have any rock star demeanor to me. I just can't pull that off.

Rock stardom and all that stuff like that was never like my main M.O., my main M.O. is musical growth, and if I become a rock star in the process, great!

- Kip Winger

Play I Think

I think probably one of the coolest things was when I went to play basketball at Rucker Park in Harlem. First of all, who would think that Larry the Cable Guy would go to Harlem to play basketball? And I was received like a rock star. It was amazing! There were people everywhere. There were guys walking by yelling, 'Git 'r done!'

- Larry the Cable Guy

Star Albums

Steve Jobs was a real rock star to me. I looked forward to his products like people look forward to albums.

Rock Star

I won't be a rock star. I will be a legend.

Being with Al Gore on the red carpet in Cannes was exciting - he's like a rock star unto himself!

- Lawrence Bender

Rock Hendrix

I just want to be an inspiration. I'm a rock star - I'm Future Hendrix.

- Future

Play Weekends

I've got two lives. Weekends, I go out and play rock star. Weekdays, I play granddad. You can't beat that.

- Gary Rossington

Play Rocker

I was in lots of dodgy bands growing up and I always fancied myself in a band. But, you know, I was rubbish at writing music. So maybe one day I'll play a rock star, or punk rocker.

- Gemma Arterton

Rock Always

I was never interested in being a rock star. I always wanted to be Boris Karloff.

Rock Star

I'd rather be a musician than a rock star.

Being a rock star was out of the question. I can't sing.

When Sweden's Jan-Ove Waldner travels to China to play table tennis, he is mobbed when he leaves his hotel as if he were a rock star walking around Manhattan or a soccer star walking around Europe.

- George Vecsey

Rock Star

You don't have to be a rock star - if you don't like the situation you're in, you don't have to settle for it.

- Macy Gray

Away Very

That was one of the most comfortable things about leaving baseball was to leave the environment. It's very much like a rock star existence - the nightlife, the hotels, lack of privacy... There's a lot of temptations out there. It was nice getting away from it.

- Mike Schmidt

Rock Star

I'm not a rock star; I'm a soft person.

- Grace Jones

About Dave

Dave was great in Van Halen. No question about it. He was one of the best at being Mr. Rock Star. But it's sickening to see a guy still trying to be that with a wig on 20 years later.

- Sammy Hagar

Art Star

Work-home-work-home, that's being an actor. Being a rock star? I get to travel the world, meet all the fans in person, party with my fans every night, and people who appreciate the art.

- Mitchel Musso
