Paul Banks from Interpol on Bob Dylan

…It’s an unmeetable level of writing. But even if it’s something I feel like I can’t ever attain, it doesn’t crush my spirit. I figured out early on that you gotta find your own strengths and hone them rather than trying to emulate something that impresses you.”

Paul Banks

“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
