Music quotes

"We don't like their sound, and guitar music is on the way out." -Decca Recording Company rejecting the Beatles, 1962

"I don't know anything about music, In my line you don't have to." -Elvis Presley (1935-1977)

"When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace." - Jimi Hendrix

"... when I saw Jimi Hendrix I knew immediately that this guy was the real thing ... and when he played it was like a rough sketch of what he was going to become ... this guy was our generation, and he wasn't in a suit .. he played a Howlin' Wolf song 'Killing Floor', and then we (The Cream) had to carry on the set. It was pretty hard to follow ... " - Eric Clapton

"Whenever society gets too stifling and the rules get too complex, there's some sort of musical explosion" - Slash / Guns 'n Roses

"... everyone was using tiny brushes and doing watercolors, while Jimi Hendrix was painting galactic scenes in Cinemascope. We are working in a field of mystical resonance, sound and vibration... that's what makes people cry, laugh and feel their hair stand up ... " - Carlos Santana

"Without music, life would be a mistake." -Friedrich Nietzsche

"Secretly, I wanted to look like Jimi Hendrix, but I could never quite pull it off." -Bryan Ferry / Roxy Music

"An intellectual is someone who can listen to the "William Tell Overture" without thinking of the Lone Ranger." -John Chesson

"If music be the food of love, play on: give me excess of it..." -William Shakespeare

Now playing: Jimi Hendrix - The Wind Cries Marry
