"I opened the Woodstock Festival even though I was supposed to be fifth. I said, 'What am I doing here? No, no, not me, not first!' I had to go on stage because there was no one else to go on first - the concert was already two-and-a-half hours late."

-Richie Havens

"You don’t get harmony when everyone sings the same note."
 
-Doug Floyd

No idea who Dough Floyd is/was. This works in a musical context of course, not sure about a philosophical one! 

These guys' harmonies ... love, love ...

"Music, for me, has always been a place where anything is possible--a refuge, a magical world where anyone can go, where all kinds of people can come together, and anything can happen. We are limited only by our imaginations." 

-Bill Frisell

"In Andalucia, when I play, the audience at some times, will say 'Ole' all at once. If they don't say 'Ole', it means that you have played like shit."

-Paco de Lucia
 
^Can’t imagine that happened too often! R.I.P. Paco – this is so very beautiful … the second movement from Concierto de Aranjuez (aka Concerto d’Orangejuice in some irreverent circles ) …

You can waste a whole lifetime

Trying to be
What you think is expected of you
But you'll never be free
 
May as well go fishing

"Before you play two notes, learn how to play one note, you know – it’s as simple as that, really. And don’t play one note unless you’ve got a reason to play it."

-Mark Hollis

In case I don't get to the Born on this Day department on time - Happy Birthday to Roderick David Stewart who is quoted as saying ... 

"Instead of getting married again, I'm going to find a woman I don't like and just give her a house."


Not sure if that was after his most recent divorce but I suspect not. The man is an incorrigible serial monogamist. 

Saw him in concert way back when - he put on a helluva show - still have the 'programme'!!

"Very often my songs, whether it’s me or the voice of a character, are about navigating tough waters while keeping the shore within sight."
