A few choice words from MUSIC SMARTS — The Inside Truth and Road-Tested Wisdom from the Brightest Minds in the Music Business, a Berklee Press and Hal Leonard music field guide...

THE HEART OF THE MATTER

You have to love music for itself. If you get into it because it’s cool, or you want to be like whoever the current person is that year; then it won’t last, and you’re taking up everybody else’s time. — Suzanne Vega

KEEP IT UP

Being a musician is a lifelong thing. If you have the right temperament and the right amount of drive, there’s no reason you can’t continually work. — Max Weinberg

IT'S ONLY NATURAL

Music has always existed in nature—the percussion of rain, the rustling of branches in the wind, the voices of animals. When people get together, it’s our nature to make music. — Terry Becker

LOVE YOUR MUSIC

We never get tired of the music we made in the Sixties, which is just the opposite of guys who say, “If I have to play that song one more time, I’m gonna shoot myself.” We’re lucky. It could have been music that we weren’t crazy about. — Steve Cropper

THANK YOUR LUCKY STARS

I wake up every day feeling so lucky that I can have this much fun doing what I do, working with people and their music. I thank my lucky stars every day. — Mike Shipley
