I just read that book!

I think that was a line he used on some woman who was a member of the Indiana Blues Society.

This quote is taken from Josh White - Live! (ABC-Paramount 407), but according to Stacy Williams' notes was originally featured in the July, 1961 issue of "33 Guide".

"In 1950, Mrs. [Franklin D.] Roosevelt took Josh on a concert tour of Europe. In England, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Scotland, he sang to sell-out crowds. Fifty thousand people showed up for one concert in Stockholm and at an Ambassador's party on Copenhagen; even the King of Denmark sat on the floor and joined in singing spirituals. In England, Princess Margaret asked Josh to sing Don't Smoke In Bed." - Peter Rachtman, July, 1961 issue of 33 Guide, on Josh White's earlier visits to Europe.

Here are two more quotes from Giles Oakley's The Devil's Music, regarding the early development of boogie-woogie:

"I would say that Boogie-Woogie was the bad little boy of the rag family who wouldn't study. I heard crude beginnings of it in the back streets of New Orleans, in those early years following 1904, but they were really back streets...such music never got played in 'gilded palaces'." - Roy Carew

"He had a left hand like God. He didn't know what key he was playing in, but he played them all. He could play the ragtime stride bass, but it bothered him because his stomach got in the way of his arm, so he used a walking bass instead. I can remember when I was thirteen - this was 1896 - how Turk would play one note with his right hand and at the same time four with his left. We called it 'sixteen' - they called it boogie-woogie." - Eubie Blake remembering William Turk

I mean, when you think about it, old blues men are always old, right?

The music industry is not all Grammy smiles and glitter; its closet is a veritable graveyard of skeletons, and when record companies point their collective finger at dot.coms like Napster and yell "Foul!" a hollow ring is heard by the thousands of artists who for decades have been unscrupulously short-changed by some of these very same finger-pointers - Chris Albertson, author's note in Bessie, 2nd ed.

OK Rivers - as long as we are getting heavy.  Even though it is a famous quote - it is a good one. :)

"The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side." Hunter S. Thompson
