I just want to make music, I don't want people to talk about me. All I've ever wanted to do was sing. I don't want to be a celebrity. I don't want to be in people's faces, you know, constantly on covers of magazine that I haven't even known I'm on.

Tags: Life, Love  ✍ Author: Steven Adler

I just had lunch with Slash two days ago. He loves Axl. He holds no grudges towards him. Twenty years of great music wasn't created because of some stupid grudge. That's a shame.

Tags: Great, Stupid  ✍ Author: Steven Adler

Growing up in a multicultural family, I never really felt that I was different - even though I was from most of the kids in my school. Especially with music, I try to just approach it as an equal.

Tags: Family, School  ✍ Author: Priscilla Ahn

In whichever way my music can get out there, I'm just like, 'Sure.' It's also through the TV synch licenses that I've been surviving. I don't really make money through record sales. I used to be really picky: 'No, I don't want it to be the song of a commercial,' but nowadays it's what you need to do to get the song out as much as you can.

Tags: Money, Song  ✍ Author: Priscilla Ahn

Tags: Degree, Show  ✍ Author: Clay Aiken

Music I heard with you was more than music, and bread I broke with you was more than bread. Now that I am without you, all is desolate; all that was once so beautiful is dead.

Tags: Beautiful, Dead  ✍ Author: Conrad Aiken

You know how a lot of people say, 'I lose myself in music,' or 'I like to escape,' but I want my music to be more of an awakening. I want it to make people to be aware of life; I don't want my music to be a distraction. I want to light a path.

Tags: Life, Path  ✍ Author: Jhene Aiko

When I was 13, listening to Choice FM, I would listen to a lot of R&B from America, and whenever a British person tried to do it, it didn't really work, they just sounded like they were trying to copy that whole style. Now the music sounds British, something real rather than an imitation.

Tags: Real, Work  ✍ Author: Katy B

My music, I feel, has always been experimental, but it had got to a point where I felt disconnected from it completely. I didn't want to be a Clark Kent/Superman: I couldn't really say, 'Well, B.o.B's the old me, and Bobby Ray's the new me.' I had to just make a point.

Tags: Old, Point  ✍ Author: B.o.B

The diverse sound of my music makes it a good fit for that demographic.

Tags: Good, Makes  ✍ Author: B.o.B

I dare suggest that the composer would do himself and his music an immediate and eventual service by total, resolute and voluntary withdrawal from this public world to one of private performance and electronic media.

Tags: Rock, Work  ✍ Author: Randy Bachman

Tags: Making, Time  ✍ Author: Randy Bachman

Tags: Loved, Movies  ✍ Author: Penn Badgley

Tags: Often, Young  ✍ Author: Derek Bailey

Tags: Tells, Truths  ✍ Author: Philip James Bailey

Tags: Great, Love  ✍ Author: Ginger Baker

I hadn't played any music since freshman year of college, more than thirty years ago, so I had to relearn everything. I started writing songs. Some were dance and trance songs (I listen to them a lot while I'm writing), and some were love songs, because that after all is what music is about - dancing and trancing and love and love's setbacks.

Tags: Love, Writing  ✍ Author: Nicholson Baker

The music wasn't going to happen, and I realized I had read so little. I didn't know my way around any century. I was very under read.

Tags: Happen, Read  ✍ Author: Nicholson Baker

From my music training, I knew that, some Spanish rhythms apart, 5/4 is a time signature used only in the modern era. Holst's Mars from the Planets is 5/4. But if you speak lines of poetry in that pattern you just end up hitting the off-beats. It's only when you add a rest - a sixth beat - that it sounds as it surely should sound.

Tags: Poetry, Time  ✍ Author: Nicholson Baker

It is only in his music, which Americans are able to admire because a protective sentimentality limits their understanding of it, that the Negro in America has been able to tell his story.

Tags: America, Tell  ✍ Author: James A. Baldwin

It is as absurd to say that a man can't love one woman all the time as it is to say that a violinist needs several violins to play the same piece of music.

Tags: Love, Time  ✍ Author: Honore de Balzac

The thing that's good about Hip Hop is that it has experimented with a lot of different sounds and music.

Tags: Good, Sounds  ✍ Author: Afrika Bambaataa
