    David Bowie vol 2...

    I wanted to prove the sustaining power of music.

    I'm always amazed that people take what I say seriously. I don't even take what I am seriously.

    I'm an instant star. Just add water and stir.

    I'm just an individual who doesn't feel that I need to have somebody qualify my work in any particular way. I'm working for me.

    I'm not a prophet or a stone aged man, just a mortal with potential of a superman. I'm living on.

    It amazes me sometimes that even intelligent people will analyze a situation or make a judgment after only recognizing the standard or traditional structure of a piece.

    On the other hand, what I like my music to do to me is awaken the ghosts inside of me. Not the demons, you understand, but the ghosts.

    Sometimes you stumble across a few chords that put you in a reflective place.

    Strangely, some songs you really don't want to write.

    The truth is of course is that there is no journey. We are arriving and departing all at the same time.

    David Bowie vol 3...

    There, in the chords and melodies, is everything I want to say. The words just jolly it along. It's always been my way of expressing what for me is inexpressible by any other means.

    When I heard Little Richard, I mean, it just set my world on fire.

    When you think about it, Adolf Hitler was the first pop star.

    Ray Charles vol 1...

    Affluence separates people. Poverty knits 'em together. You got some sugar and I don't; I borrow some of yours. Next month you might not have any flour; well, I'll give you some of mine.

    I did it to myself. It wasn't society... it wasn't a pusher, it wasn't being blind or being black or being poor. It was all my doing.

    I don't know what would have happened to me if I hadn't been able to hear.

    I never wanted to be famous. I only wanted to be great.

    I was born with music inside me. Music was one of my parts. Like my ribs, my kidneys, my liver, my heart. Like my blood. It was a force already within me when I arrived on the scene. It was a necessity for me-like food or water.

    Learning to read music in Braille and play by ear helped me develop a damn good memory.

    Love is a special word, and I use it only when I mean it. You say the word too much and it becomes cheap.

    Today a man discovered gold and fame, Another flew the stormy seas; Another set an unarmed world aflame, One found the germ of a disease. But what high fates my path attend: For I-today-I found a friend.
    - Helen Barker Parker

    Wishing you all a safe and happy weekend.

    "It ain't what you do, it's the way that you do it
    It ain't the wall, it's the way you go thru it"

    Beats the heck out of me who said it

    Hi,

    That's how my entire generation felt, which is probably why they've endured so long.

    Nowadays kids seem to just wanna be famous, they don't care about the YEARS of rehearsal it takes to be GREAT.

    Just stand in a queue for some cheap-ass TV talent show

    Andy Warhol and fifteen minutes springs to mind!.

    Long days and pleasant nights

    Ray Charles vol 2...

    Music's been around a long time, and there's going to be music long after Ray Charles is dead. I just want to make my mark, leave something musically good behind. If it's a big record, that's the frosting on the cake, but music's the main meal.

    My music had roots which I'd dug up from my own childhood, musical roots buried in the darkest soil.

    My version of "Georgia" became the state song of Georgia. That was a big thing for me, man. It really touched me. Here is a state that used to lynch people like me suddenly declaring my version of a song as its state song. That is touching.

    The fact of the matter is, you don't give up what's natural. Anything I've fantasized about, I've done.

    There are many spokes on the wheel of life. First, we're here to explore new possibilities.

    There's nothing written in the Bible, Old or New testament, that says, "If you believe in Me, you ain't going to have no troubles."

    What is a soul? It's like electricity - we don't really know what it is, but it's a force that can light a room.

    What makes my approach special is that I do different things. I do jazz, blues, country music and so forth. I do them all, like a good utility man.

    Joe Cocker vol 1...

    Don't go on American Idol, I think you'll spend the rest of your life living it down and I think it's getting kinda scary, isn't it?

    Europe is usually where I am usually galloping around.

    Steven Wright Vol. 1

    All those who believe in psychokinesis raise my hand.

    I almost had a psychic girlfriend but she left me before we met.

    OK, so what's the speed of dark?

    How do you tell when you're out of invisible ink?

    Support bacteria - they're the only culture some people have.

    When everything is coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.

    Ambition is a poor excuse for not having enough sense to be lazy.

    Everyone has a photographic memory. Some just don't have film.

    Shin: a device for finding furniture in the dark.

    Many people quit looking for work when they find a job.

    Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.
