Johnny Winter – rest in peace

“I started playing ukulele first for 2 years from age 9 to 11 and got my first guitar and got inspired by blues I heard on the radio that turned me on and I started learning myself.”

Johnny Winter

Keith Richards

“Good music comes out of people playing together, knowing what they want to do and going for it. You have to sweat over it and bug it to death. You can’t do it by pushing buttons and watching a TV screen.”

Keith Richards

If you don’t know the blues… there’s no point in picking up the guitar and playing rock and roll or any other form of popular music.”

Keith Richards

Mick Jagger

“I believe we should encourage children to sing and play instruments from an early age.”

“My mother has always been unhappy with what I do. She would rather I do something nicer, like be a bricklayer.”

Mick Jagger

Tom Waits

“Songs really are like a form of time travel because they really have moved forward in a bubble. Everyone who’s connected with it, the studio’s gone, the musicians are gone, and the only thing that’s left is this recording which was only about a three-minute period maybe 70 years ago.”

Tom Waits

Ray Charles

“Music is nothing separate from me. It is me… You’d have to remove the music surgically. ”
 

Ray Charles

Johnny Cash

“All music comes from God.”

Johnny Cash

Les Paul

“Paint pictures with sound. First, find your white—the deepest, roundest sound you can play on the guitar. Then, find your black—which is the most extreme tonal difference from white you can play. Now, just pick the note where you’ve got white, pick it where you’ve got black, and then find all those colors in between. Get those colors down, and you’ll be able to express almost any emotion on the guitar.”

Les Paul

Walter Becker from Steely Dan

“My primary influences were the best jazz players from the 50′s and 60′s and later some of the pop people from the same time period along with the better of the well-known blues musicians.”

Walter Becker
