 Friedrich Nietzsche, German Philosopher


Rock & Roll is not sedate, not safe, has truly nothing to do with money or anything. It’s like wind, rain, fire – it’s elemental. Fourteen-year old kids, they don’t think, they feel. Rock & Roll is fire. It’s the attitude. It’s thumbing your nose at the world. It’s a load. It’s such a load that it burns people out after a few years. Even the best of ‘em burn out. People get old – they forget what it’s like to be a kid, they’re responsible, they’re this and they’re that….You can’t have it both ways. You’re a rock and roller. Or you’re not.

 Neil Young, Canadian Musician


Simply handing over your iPod to a friend, your blind date or a total stranger on a plane opens you up like a book.  All somebody needs to do is scroll through your library and musically speaking you’re naked.  It’s not just what you like – it’s who you are.

 Steven Levy, Steve Jobs Autobiography


If anyone has any imagination, they’ll know what I’m doing. If they don’t understand my songs, they’re missing something.

 Bob Dylan, American Musician


In the age of technology we have grown used to many things being convenient and easy.  The only problem with this is music is not like that. It is a storm on the senses, weather for the soul, deeper than deep, wider than wide.  It is more than what you see or hear. It is what you feel. That is missing in today’s technology for music, although many things have come along to replace it and distract from its absence.

 Neil Young, Canadian Musician


One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.

 Bob Marley, Jamaican Singer and Songwriter
