Overview

A bible of carefully selected quotations from the mouths of the music industry

"None of the new generation can ever be the Godfather. The only people that qualify are myself and Sinatra. It's God's business that nobody can fill my shoes."  —James Brown

"AC/DC's Highway to Hell is the greatest meshing of vocal, guitar and content I've ever heard. That's what I aspire to."  —Bonnie Raitt

"All the good music has already been written by people with wigs and stuff."  —Frank Zappa

"When I'm no longer rapping, I want to open up an ice cream parlor and call myself Scoop Dogg."  —Snoop Dogg

For boasting and bravado, the music industry at times eclipses even Hollywood. Rock stars, rappers, producers, and entrepreneurs provide quotes that are sometimes sidesplitting, occasionally grave, but always unforgettable. The quotes cover topics from the birth of rock'n'roll to the punk revolution, teen culture, fickle fashions, divas, drummers, and much more.
