From The Horses Mouth

It is always nice to hear what the musicians who paved they way have to say about music because if you think you are jaded as a fan just listen to what these folks think who have been in the business for a while.
1Tony Bennett

The young people look great on television. They're youthful and have a lot of zip and energy, but when you see them live, they can only do about 20 minutes because they haven't got the training to hold an audience for an hour and a half or so. We're in an era where the demand is for immediate hits that are destined to become obsolescent. Six months later, everyone forgets the artist and the tune. It's become like a con job. Producers, engineers, lawyers and accountants all make money, but the artists don't.
2Nina Simone

There's no excuse for the young people not knowing who the heroes and heroines are or were.
3Yo-yo Ma

When you learn something from people, or from a culture, you accept it as a gift, and it is your lifelong commitment to preserve it and build on it.
4Joe Jackson

I'm quite often amused and exasperated by artists who complain they were made to do certain things by their record company, or their producer, or their manager and so on, which I don't believe at all. No one puts a gun against your head and says, "Make this kind of music."
5Emmylou Harris

The country that you hear on the radio, it feels poppy but without the originality of pop.
6Missy Elliot

Hip-hop is definitely not what it used to be, which was creative, original music.
7Stevie Nicks

I think they all went too far. Their jeans got too low, their tops got too see-through. Personally, I think that sexy is keeping yourself mysterious. I'm really an old-fashioned girl, and I think I'm totally sexy.
8Vince Gil

The devaluation of music and what it?s now deemed to be worth is laughable to me. My single costs 99 cents. That?s what a [single] cost in 1960. On my phone, I can get an app for 99 cents that makes fart noises ? the same price as the thing I create and speak to the world with. Some would say the fart app is more important. It?s an awkward time. Creative brains are being sorely mistreated.
9Chrissie Hynde

Remember those black-and-white films with Frank Sinatra? Those guys looked like men and they were only 27! Listen to Otis Redding singing 'Try A Little Tenderness'. That was a man who understood what a man has to know in the world. Show me a real man now! Where are they?
10Charlie Daniels

I take good advice and direction really well, but I don't need somebody that finished college two years ago to come in and tell me what I should be recording.
