Don't rush it, don't attack it. Just lay in it. And it's so easy to lay in it, it's just when you start fighting with yourself it'll come out like... (plays speeded up version of Turn Your Money Green)... Just lay there. It ain't goin' no place and you ain't goin' no place 'til you finish it - Jerry Ricks, Port Townsend 97

Quotes for 2016
« on: May 06, 2016, 07:33:43 PM »
Hi all,
I have been requested to post a couple of quotes for the quote generator by Peter B. Lowry, so here they are.  The first is from him.

"Music gets one through times of no money better than money gets one through times of no music." Peter B. Lowry

The second is from Jazz saxophonist Lee Konitz:

"There's not much for me to say about my music - I play because it's one of the few things that make sense to me." From Lee Konitz's notes to the album "Motion".

All best,
Johnm

Q: Is the quotes data base available and searchable somewhere? I'm looking for a Mance Lipscomb quote that I've seen in the banner that I can't find anywhere else on the interwebs.

Was it this one? http://weeniecampbell.com/yabbse/index.php?topic=2508.0

There is no new data to confirm or deny it as legit.

No - eventually it popped up on the banner - it's this one:

"Oh man, I just wish you people had come along twenty years ago; I was in my prime then." - Mance Lipscomb to Paul Oliver, Chris Strachwitz and Mack McCormick, 1960

I had a look for the original posting to see if there was more attribution. The fact that I couldn't find it indicates it predates the current version of the forum and was posted back when we were on Yahoo Groups or on the original email listserv.
