Overview

In The Quotable Musician: From Bach to Tupac, music artists through the ages speak out in this illuminating collection of quotations. Both the famous and the obscure from every genre of music—including classical, rock, Latin, country, blues, and hip-hop–are celebrated in more than one thousand quotations sure to intrigue and delight. Quotes offer individual takes on the music world, other musicians, singing and “the song,” performing and rehearsing, success, fame, fortune, failure, and rejection. Readers will also see both the playful and serious sides of the music masters in sections on love, passion, relationships, and sex; aging and death; nature and healing; humor and witticisms; religion and spirituality; and much more. Special sections pay particular attention to the words of Ron Carter, T.S. Monk, the Beatles, and Benny Golson. Any musician or music lover will savor this collection of provocative, mischievous, and profound words from music personalities of the past and present.
