"I don't find the songs; they find me. I just strum my guitar and wait for a lyric to come."
was:

James Taylor.

Try:

"Music is spiritual. The music business is not."

-------------------------

Some great quotes in this thread. :D I loved the Jerry Garcia one that went ""We need magic, and bliss, and power, myth, and celebration and religion in our lives, and music is a good way to encapsulate a lot of it. " but they've all been worth reading.

I've been imitated so well I've heard people copy my mistakes

"We are all very lucky to live in a
world where there is this much music"

That would be James Marshall Hendrix.

"People like Prince and OutKast – I love the guys that come along and break all the rules of songwriting"

I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.
Did you know that the word "gullible" is not in any dictionary?

Keith Urban apparently. Looks like he's an Aussie too, but I must admit I don't know anything about him. :oops:

Next:

"I wanted to definitely be a musician or a good preacher or a heck of a baseball player. I couldn't play ball too good-I hurt my finger, and I stopped that. I couldn't preach, and well, all I had left was getting into the music thing. "

Don't all rush at once... :o

I'm not sure whether everyone's had enough of playing this, or whether that one was just trickier to find than usual. :?:

Anyway, it was Muddy Waters. I'm glad he passed up the other options. :)

Here's an easier one:

"Just because you like my stuff doesn't mean I owe you anything."

Ok it's been 24 hrs and no takers. Lets go with Led Zeppelin. They didn't actually say it themselves so that one doesn't really count. This one will.

"Use lighter strings".

Wasn't that Jimmy Page when asked what advice he'd give guitarists?

On the off chance that I'm right, I'll post a quote too:

When I started, rock and roll itself was the basic revolution to people of my age and situation. We needed something loud and clear to break through all the unfeeling and repression that had been coming down on us as kids.

Well we all shine on--like the moon and the stars and the sun.
-- John Lennon

John Lennon, 1971

Next one:

"I don't write lyrics much anymore, but I offend people just as much with the music itself."

That'll be Frank Zappa.

"The great thing is that this band has really truly resolved so many things and been out on the road being very vital and to know that the whole gypsy thing that bands are is still intact."

One of his band's song titles is actually in that quote.

"The people who run record companies now wouldn't know a song if it flew up their nose and died. They haven't a clue, and they don't care. You tell them that, and they go, Yeah? So, your point is? "
