"Larry represents more…the old style. Larry is no-nonsense. It's not that he wouldn't like new ideas, but he wouldn't be into the self indulgence of a lot of new experimental music. He would be like, 'Where's the tune?' And he doesn't like being replaced by a computer. He knows he won't be, so he's quite secure in that sense. He's not so easily turned on to new things. They have to really move him before he's going to accept them."
- The Edge, 1999
