Music Quote TidBit – David Bowie

“I do value the respect I get from my contemporaries, but to have Oasis cover my song, to have Puff Daddy cover a song, to have Goldie come along to my gigs – that’s where my ego is at. To have my fellow musicians like what I do, that’s very cool.” – David Bowie

Rob Halford Has Something to Say!

In a recent interview with Rob Halford of Judas Priest, he states that a straight man couldn’t do his job. Here’s his entire quote:

“I love Priest more than anything, so while always in my mind — I have to be careful how I say this — it’s not important to the music. Though I will say, a straight man can’t do my job [laughs]. That’s the way I view it. Freddie [Mercury] said it wasn’t important, but if Freddie hadn’t have been gay, Queen would’ve been a totally different band. But that’s a really important part of my life that I have to get down on paper at some point.”

Music Quote TidBit – Jerry Garcia

“… We have quite a large area, and that makes it more fun for us — certainly more satisfying, because it doesn’t restrict us to one particular idea or one particular style. The result, I think, is pretty interesting … we don’t expect to make a fortune at it or ever be popular or famous or worshipped or hit The Ed Sullivan Show or the circuses or the big top. As long as we can play, we’ll play, regardless of what it’s for, who it’s for or anything. It’s fun for us — that’s the important thing.”

Jerry Garcia – The Grateful Dead

Music Quote TidBit

When you sit down and think about what rock ‘n’ roll music really is, then you have to change that question.  Played up-tempo, you call it rock ‘n’ roll; at a regular tempo, you call it rhythm and blues.

Little Richard
