Celebrating both the famous and the obscure from every genre of music—including classical, rock, Latin, country, blues, and hip-hop, The Little Red Book of Musician’s Wisdom offers a touching anecdote or pithy line for every musical occasion. Musicians, critics, DJs, and industry onlookers provide illuminating commentary on a wealth of topics:

• Singing, rehearsing, and performing
• Success, fame, and fortune
• Failure and rejection
• Music critics and industry bigwigs
• Love, passion, and sex
• Aging and death
• Humor and wit
• Religion and spirituality

Individual sections pay particular homage to the words of Ron Carter, T. S. Monk, The Beatles, and Benny Golson. Musicians, music lovers, and those who love hearing from the talented and famous will savor this collection of provocative, mischievous, and profound words from musical personalities of the past and present.
