A few choice words from Music Smarts, a Berklee Press and Hal Leonard music field guide...
THE GIRL CAN'T HELP IT
I don’t think true musicians, actors, and artists have any choice. —k.d. lang
IN THE RIGHT PLACE
I really discourage a lot of people from getting into this racket. I don’t think it’s something you should get into for the money. You should get into it because you just love to do it. —Dr. John
Just play every chance you get, for anyone who will listen. —Willie Nelson
WAY BACK IN THE DAY
Nothing has really changed in the creation of music since that first guy started beating on a log and that woman found a reed with holes and blew in it and got a whistling sound. You immerse yourself in the energy of the universe and pluck your note. —Ray Manzarek
