Greg Behrendt Quotes.
I went to stand-up when my rock n’ roll dreams weren’t coming true. I knew it wasn’t going to happen when I was in a New Wave band in 1992 – at the height of grunge. Then I heard No Doubt’s ‘Spiderwebs’ and I said, ‘Well, we’re done.’ They did – and succeeded at – what we were trying to do.
