ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — “Isn’t it just beautiful how Albuquerque has become a part of the show. I’m actually jealous of my husband because he started watching ‘Breaking Bad’ from the beginning recently and it’s really nice to see some of the places around town. I’ve been checking it out with him for my second time.” – Albuquerque native and “Modern Family” star Jesse Tyler Ferguson

“I love that show and I feel like I’m going through withdrawals from the show. When I get home, all I want to do is watch the show … Albuquerque is so prominent in the show.” Matt Skiba of Alkaline Trio

“We’re huge fans. We actually wrote a song hoping that it would be on the show one day. I think we’re going to go to the car wash that’s used in the TV show and record a video there. That’s our plan for this trip.” – Liam McCormick of The Family Crest

“We actually visited some sites from the show the last time we were in New Mexico like Walt’s house and the (A1A) Car Wash.” – Death metal guitarist Johnathan Mathos of Abiotic

“The song fit perfect for the scene. It was great to get more exposure and we never thought our music would be used in TV. This show was like the hidden muse to our music.” – Brigid Dawson of The Oh Sees on the band’s song, “Tidal Wave” being used in an episode of “Breaking Bad”

“I spent a lot of time growing up here in Albuquerque. It’s home to ‘Breaking Bad’ and I’m kind of jealous that it’s filmed here.” – Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic

“I’m looking forward when I go out there to see my good friend Aaron Paul. I kept him from stopping acting. He was wanting to quit before ‘Breaking Bad’ so I contributed in some small way … It’s one of those weird things in life.” Marilyn Manson, rock star, artist, actor and author

“We’ve eaten there (The Grove Cafe & Market) many times. We had no idea it was the place for the finale at the end. It made sense. It’s pretty crazy they used Albuquerque. It was the perfect setting for the show.” – Bassist Paul Gregoletto, of heavy-metal band Trivium

“I’m a huge fan of ‘Breaking Bad’ and I want to see some of the places they film there. I’ve been waiting to book a show in Albuquerque just so I can take some time out to see those places and tour where they’ve shot the show.” Chris Webby, rapper
