Never Lie In an Job Interview

As we all know, job interviews are intensely stressful occasions.

I have a question for any hiring manager about references

Most of the companies I worked for are no longer in business. People I know and I worked for, including managers, will not give references because of HR issues. I was told hiring managers look for references. How can I get references in this situation? Any suggestions?
