"I never bought records. I was never into music. I'm still not into music. I mean, if you play me a song and I like it, I'll remember it forever. I like songs. But I'm not into records. A record is just -- it's too overwhelming. It's too much. My attention span is really short."

"I learned that there was this other music, and it's not like Billy Idol and it's not like 'What's Love Got to Do with It' or all the '80s stuff, like Kajagoogoo or Debbie Gibson. There's more out there."
--Chan on college radio
