The artist that you're listening to or are in love with, they were usually listening to three or four people within the framework of the style they were in. What you're essentially tryin' to do is play every giant of country blues's music as well as them, every song, in every style. Impossible! Give it up! - Jerry Ricks, Port Townsend 97

There was a time when music knew its place. No longer. Possibly this is not music's fault. It may be that music fell in with a bad crowd and lost its sense of common decency. - Fran Lebowitz, "The Sound of Music: Enough Already"

?A lot of people think the blues is depressing,? she told The Los Angeles Times in 1992, ?but that?s not the blues I?m singing. When I?m singing blues, I?m singing life. People that can?t stand to listen to the blues, they?ve got to be phonies.? Etta James
My loathings are simple: stupidity, oppression, crime, cruelty, soft music.
Vladimir Nabokov (1899 - 1977)
