"I sometimes feel a bit embarrassed to play guitar. There's something — I don't want to sound ungrateful — but there's something very old-fashioned and traditional about it. You meet kids today whose grandparents were in punk bands. It's very old and traditional, but then, so is an orchestra and so is a string section. ... [It's] is a contradiction going around in my head, and I can't really resolve it." Greenwood quoted on NPR, Sept. 15, 2012.
