A few choice words from Music Smarts, a Berklee Press and Hal Leonard music field guide...
A HIGHER LOVE
When you play a song, whether for a couple people sitting around in a room or thousands of people at a concert, you get on the same wavelength, where it feels like you agree with someone—where you have a common ground. Music can unite people. —Jack Johnson
LOVE IS WHAT WE NEED
Pet Sounds was the 'love' album. It had love in it, and I think people need that. A lot of people don’t want to admit it, but they need that kind of a spiritual love that we put out there in our records. —Brian Wilson
WITHIN AND WITHOUT
What we have always tried to do as artists is to reflect what is going on around us and reveal what is going on inside of us. —Graham Nash
Be patient. Remember, they’re not going to like you automatically just because you do. —David St. Hubbins
