I was drawn to love songs, but I was just drawn to great music - no matter if it's hip-hop, pop, R&B or whether it's rock n' roll or country. It could be a Garth Brooks song, and if it's a smash, then I'll love the different wordplay and different melodies. That's what I'm a fan of - great music.Nayvadius Cash Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Nayvadius Cash: I was drawn to love songs, but I was just drawn to great music -

You stand there, braced. Cloud shadows race over the buff rock stacks as a projected film, casting a queasy, mottled ground rash. The air hisses and it is no local breeze but the great harsh sweep of wind from the turning of the earth. The wild country
indigo jags of mountain, grassy plain everlasting, tumbled stones like fallen cities, the flaring roll of sky
provokes a spiritual shudder. It is like a deep note that cannot be heard but is felt, it is like a claw in the gut ...

I loved rock and roll when that came in, Bill Haley, Little Richard, Fats Domino, Buddy Holly, Elvis Presley, all those great records.

What I've always tried to do is to express the highest point of me, and rock 'n' roll is the first and the most open form created by our generation. The cool thing about it is that you get the power, you get the rhythm; you can be taken over sexually, you can be taken over cerebrally; it's great to look at - it's a package deal.Patti Smith Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Patti Smith: What I've always tried to do is to express the highest point of me, and
We are a band that stylistically crosses a lot of barriers and generational gaps. The heavier portion of the band, the modern music elements, the visual part of the band appeal to a younger audience. For an older audience, we have chops and great songs that are reminiscent of the things that were great about rock and roll when they enjoyed it. We're the kind of band that can cross those lines.Andy Biersack Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Andy Biersack: We are a band that stylistically crosses a lot of barriers and generational gaps. The

The '60s was a magical time in the music business. So much creativity and talent. I think a lot of it came from the fact that we had grown up before rock n' roll.

I think that really influenced everybody.Frankie Valli Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Frankie Valli: The '60s was a magical time in the music business. So much creativity and talent.
My son is a great kid and does super well in school. I couldn't be prouder of him. What I tell him is, 'You don't want to just be known for being the son of a rich rock 'n' roll star.' I've seen a lot of kids like that. I want him to be happy, work hard and create his own thing. I tell him, 'You're not gonna be one of these kids up on stage playing with me. If you wanna have hits - write your own. Then we can play together.'Kid Rock Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Kid Rock: My son is a great kid and does super well in school. I couldn't be

I think with Sky and BBC Three and Channel 4, there are some great television platforms, and the stand-up movement in this country is phenomenal. It's like rock n' roll here. Britain's a funny place and there's a lot of funny people coming out of there and a lot of people are finding mediums to express themselves.Brendan Coyle Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Brendan Coyle: I think with Sky and BBC Three and Channel 4, there are some great television

liked the idea of using pop bubblegum music, rock 'n' roll for 14-year-olds. That's what I grew up with as a teen in the '70s. And I thought it's a great ironic counterpoint to the roughness and rudeness and disturbing nature of the film to have this 'What's wrong with this picture?' music playing along with it.Richard V. Greene Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Richard V. Greene: liked the idea of using pop bubblegum music, rock 'n' roll for 14-year-olds. That's what
So we got there at 6 a.m. We'd be shooting by 6:45. We wouldn't break for lunch, we'd just pass food around all day.

We wouldn't break
A little boy, he can play like he's a fireman or a cop
although fewer and fewer are pretending to be cops, thank God
or a deep-sea diver or a quarterback or a spaceman or a rock 'n roll star or a cowboy, or anything else glamorous and exciting (Author's note: What about a novelist, Jellybean?), and although chances are by the time he's in high school he'll get channeled into safer, duller ambitions, the great truth is, he can be any of those things, realize any of those fantasies, if he has the strength, nerve and sincere desire ... But little girls? Podner, you know that story as well as me. Give 'em doll babies, tea sets and toy stoves. And if they show a hankering for more bodacious playthings, call 'em tomboy, humor 'em for a few years and then slip 'em the bad news ... And the reality is, we got about as much chance of growing up to be cowgirls as Eskimos have got being vegetarians.
Tom Robbins Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Tom Robbins: A little boy, he can play like he's a fireman or a copalthough fewer and
Rock 'n' roll and playing live is very addictive. But you have to really be careful, because you don't want to do it all the time. It's like when you are young and you think if you are not having sex you're wasting your time. But as you get older you realise everything has its place. It's the same thing with performing ... Performing is a great thing to do but you don't want to have to be doing it every night.Mick Jagger Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Mick Jagger: Rock 'n' roll and playing live is very addictive. But you have to really be
Michael Bloomfield came in after rock n roll started, and he was a great guitarist. He idolized me - I know that. What else can I say ? he was a young, excitable man. To him, drugs were plentiful, and that was no good. I talked to him like he was a son of mine. He was a great and he was gonna be greater. But he was part of the "in-crowd" and so he never got thereB.B. King Great Rock And Roll Sayings By B.B. King: Michael Bloomfield came in after rock n roll started, and he was a great guitarist.
Music is such a great communicator. It breaks down linguistic barriers, cultural barriers, it basically reaches out. That's when rock n' roll succeeds, and that's what virtuosity is all about.The Edge Great Rock And Roll Sayings By The Edge: Music is such a great communicator. It breaks down linguistic barriers, cultural barriers, it basically

The idea of being a rock and roll musician sort of suited my talents and mentality. The freedom was great, but then I found out I wasn't free. I'd got boxed in ... The whole Beatle thing is just beyond comprehension ... subconsciously I was crying for help.John Lennon Great Rock And Roll Sayings By John Lennon: The idea of being a rock and roll musician sort of suited my talents and
From the hell of the slave quarters would come some of the Deep South's great gifts to the continent: blues, jazz, gospel, and rock and roll, as well as the Caribbean-inspired foodways today enshrined in Southern-style barbeque joints from Miami to Anchorage.Colin Woodard Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Colin Woodard: From the hell of the slave quarters would come some of the Deep South's great

I know I'm not Freddie Mercury or Ann Wilson, and that's okay. You don't have to be a great singer to sing rock and roll. That's not what it's about.Taylor Hawkins Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Taylor Hawkins: I know I'm not Freddie Mercury or Ann Wilson, and that's okay. You don't have
I tend to gravitate towards the great rock-and-roll front men, the guys that are very "bare bones." I like Bono, I like Chris Martin(Coldplay) and I like the running around. I think they are amazing at it, but I think that there is something great about a guy that can captivate a room, and very little movement and running everywhere.Matthew Mayfield Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Matthew Mayfield: I tend to gravitate towards the great rock-and-roll front men, the guys that are very
Some men look great unshaven; others just look like they forgot to shave. Beards and mustaches can be really distinctive if you go for an earthy, rock-and-roll look like the Kings of Leon or the Killers.Donatella Versace Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Donatella Versace: Some men look great unshaven; others just look like they forgot to shave. Beards and

There's room for everyone. There's room for pop country, for 'rock & roll' country, for stone-cold country, and everything in-between. Great music is great music.Miranda Lambert Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Miranda Lambert: There's room for everyone. There's room for pop country, for 'rock & roll' country, for

Stonehenge had an aura but it was also just stone. Then in the sixties, it became a great hedonistic, hippie, druid, rock-n-roll party site. There are amazing pictures of people up on the stones going wild and that's the image I recreated for my model of the project: full access to everyone. I even invented a Stonehenge soccer team that uses spaces between the stones as goals.Aleksandra Mir Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Aleksandra Mir: Stonehenge had an aura but it was also just stone. Then in the sixties, it
Where is this great love for rock and roll that existed for 50 or 60 years?Billy Corgan Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Billy Corgan: Where is this great love for rock and roll that existed for 50 or 60
Yugoslavia was a kind of superpower. Great movies. Beautiful novels. Great rock-and-roll. We became a superpower in basketball. The problem is that people needed to identify more strongly with it after Tito and his awful, tricky way of leading the country.Emir Kusturica Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Emir Kusturica: Yugoslavia was a kind of superpower. Great movies. Beautiful novels. Great rock-and-roll. We became a
That's the great thing about rock n' roll: the myth is ultimately more important than the reality.

My favorite type of music to sing to would be rock and roll, Tenacious D, Led Zeppelin, some Queen - I love all of them. I love singing to them because they're all just great voices. I love listening to very obscure jazz.Casey Abrams Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Casey Abrams: My favorite type of music to sing to would be rock and roll, Tenacious D,
I worked as a roadie in the rock and roll business which was great fun. Very little money, very little food and the whole thing about the roadie's lifestyle is great because all the groupies have to go through the roadies to get to the rock stars. It's not necessarily true.Billy Bob Thornton Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Billy Bob Thornton: I worked as a roadie in the rock and roll business which was great fun.
Pop music has progressed. The singing voice has changed dramatically in pop music, and people now just sing the way they want to, in their speaking voice, instead of putting on some great transatlantic rock and roll sneer.Steven Morrissey Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Steven Morrissey: Pop music has progressed. The singing voice has changed dramatically in pop music, and people
'She's Dynamite' was a 100 years ago, and I recorded that song because the company thought that it was a great song and it was hot. That was the beginning of rock n' roll, and I guess they thought it would be a BB King version of rock n' roll.B.B. King Great Rock And Roll Sayings By B.B. King: 'She's Dynamite' was a 100 years ago, and I recorded that song because the company
The death of self of which the great writers speak is no violent act. It is merely the joining of the great rock heart of the earth in its roll. It is merely the slow cessation of the will's spirits and the intellect's chatter: it is waiting like a hollow bell with a stilled tongue. Fuge, tace, quiesce. The waiting itself is the thing.Annie Dillard Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Annie Dillard: The death of self of which the great writers speak is no violent act. It
But such people (Moderate Conservatives) aren't liberal. What they are is corporate. Their habits and opinions owe far more to the standards of courtesy and taste that prevail within the white-collar world than they do to Franklin Roosevelt and the United Mine Workers. We live in a time, after all, when hard-nosed bosses compose awestruck disquisitions on the nature of 'change,' punk rockers dispense leadership secrets, shallow profundities about authenticity sell luxury cars, tech billionaires build rock'n'roll musuems, management theorists ponder the nature of coolness, and a former lyricist fro the Grateful Dead hail the dawn of New Economy capitalism from the heights of Davos. Coversvatives may not understand why, but business culture had melded with counterculture for reasons having a great deal to do with business culture's usual priority - profit.Thomas Frank Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Thomas Frank: But such people (Moderate Conservatives) aren't liberal. What they are is corporate. Their habits and
There's a great rock and roll scene in Sweden. There are many smaller bands like ourselves that are great. Oh yes, there's a band called Eggstone, they're really good, and a band called the Soundtrack Of Our Lives, which is excellent.Nina Persson Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Nina Persson: There's a great rock and roll scene in Sweden. There are many smaller bands like
Deep Purple definitely belongs in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

'Cause they had

Senator [George] Mitchell is a man of many talents and he's swift on his feet, but one would not think of him as 'dancing with the stars.' And we had this great rock 'n' roll fund raiser.Barbara Mikulski Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Barbara Mikulski: Senator [George] Mitchell is a man of many talents and he's swift on his feet,
Rock 'n' roll music, in the end, is a source of religious and mystical power. Your playing can suck, your singing can be barely viable, but if when you get together with your pals in front of your audience and make the noise, the one that is drawn from the center of your being, from your godhead, from your gutter, from the universe's infinitesimal genesis point... you're rockin' and you're a rock 'n' roll star in every sense of the word. The punks instinctively knew this and created a third revolution out of it, but it is an essential element in the equation of every great musical unit and rock 'n' roll band, no matter how down-to-earth their presentation.Bruce Springsteen Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Bruce Springsteen: Rock 'n' roll music, in the end, is a source of religious and mystical power.
I suppose the best comedy shows do have the rock n' roll feeling - if it's a great night, and the roof is raised ... yeah, it's a similar feeling, sure.Dylan Moran Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Dylan Moran: I suppose the best comedy shows do have the rock n' roll feeling - if
I remember when I was first starting out in the late 50's, and everybody at that time said rock 'n roll was gonna die. I was 15 years old when I started, and I certainly didn't believe that was true. I thought anything that feels this good and makes me want to tap my foot like this can't be a passing fad like everybody says. Of course, they were wrong, and here we are in the 90's and it's alive and well, and getting programmed all over the country, and really all over the world. So it's been a great journey.Bobby Vee Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Bobby Vee: I remember when I was first starting out in the late 50's, and everybody at
I once asked [John] Lennon what he thought of what I do. He said 'it's great, but its just rock and roll with lipstick on'.David Bowie Great Rock And Roll Sayings By David Bowie: I once asked [John] Lennon what he thought of what I do. He said 'it's
There is so much great talent in the underground, and electronic music is finally getting the props that it's deserved for so long. I feel like now that everyone is discovering it and it's so fresh sounding to so many people. It doesn't get any more rock n' roll than playing EDC or the Staples Center. It's really madness.Kaskade Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Kaskade: There is so much great talent in the underground, and electronic music is finally getting
People didn't know certain things about me, which ... I was out of creative writing class in school, Syracuse University; had a B.A. in English and wanted to write the great American novel but I also loved rock and roll. I was in bar bands all through college, playing fraternities and have to know all the songs in the top 10. That kind of thing.Lou Reed Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Lou Reed: People didn't know certain things about me, which ... I was out of creative writing
With beat of systole and of diastole One grand great life throbs through earth's giant heart, And mighty waves of single Being roll From nerveless germ to man, for we are part Of every rock and bird and beast and hill, One with the things that prey on us, and one with what we kill. FromOscar Wilde Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Oscar Wilde: With beat of systole and of diastole One grand great life throbs through earth's giant
Democracy can tie your hands in a rock 'n' roll band, you know? It can be a great thing, but if you've got a certain amount of vision and you write a lot of songs, it's sometimes better to have your own band and make your own decisions.Jason Isbell Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Jason Isbell: Democracy can tie your hands in a rock 'n' roll band, you know? It can
And I like Strauss and Mozart and all that, but the priceless gift that African Americans gave the world when they were still in slavery was a gift so great that it is now almost the only reason many foreigners still like us at least a little bit. That specific remedy for the worldwide epidemic of depression is a gift called the blues. All pop music today-jazz, swing, be-bop, Elvis Presley, the Beatles, the Stones, rock and roll, hip hop and on and on- is derived from the blues.Kurt Vonnegut Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Kurt Vonnegut: And I like Strauss and Mozart and all that, but the priceless gift that African
Karl Agell sang for our Blind album which was our second best selling record. He's a great guy and as a matter of fact, before Mike, Woody and I really got going on touring on the old Animosity stuff, Karl & I did about a dozen shows performing the Blind album from start to finish. He's still a good friend of mine and is now in a band called Lead Foot that's more Rock and Roll but they're fantastic, kind of Thin Lizzy or MC5 sounding.Reed Mullin Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Reed Mullin: Karl Agell sang for our Blind album which was our second best selling record. He's
New generations have unprecedented power to make great changes. Take the music business for example. The new generations have toppled the music industry by file sharing, downloading, and Myspace. Rock 'n' roll belongs to the people.Patti Smith Great Rock And Roll Sayings By Patti Smith: New generations have unprecedented power to make great changes. Take the music business for example.
