Saving Abel Quotes:
"Saving Abel music, I don't care if you're a metal head, I don't care if you like Willie Nelson and you're a bluegrass fan - you can listen to the music, you can relate to it, you can synthesize with it." (They Will Rock You, March 25, 2008)
Jared Weeks, on his favorite Saving Abel song.
"My favorite on this album would be 'Drowning Face Down.' It brings me back to a time period when we're driving from Mississippi to Memphis then back home. We were in the studio hours upon hours, all the time we wasted at red lights. It just brings you back to the time when as hopeless as it seemed, it was all for a good cause." (They Will Rock You, March 25, 2008)
Jason Null, on his early creative spark.
"Once I figured out chords and could piece them together, I began writing. I wrote songs before I actually learned guitar … I have fallen to sleep many nights with the guitar in my hand and notebook beside me." (Absolute Punk, July 28, 2008)
