Quotes:

"All rock musicians are deaf—or insensitive to mellow sounds."
Submitted by: Gong Banger
A lot of people don't know about music, but buy records. A lot of people that know about music can't afford to buy records.

All rock musicians are deaf... Or insensitive to mellow sounds.

Be strong and follow your own convictions. You can't assume there is a lot of time to do what you like. This is what David Bowie is afraid of: that he will die before he gets a chance to make a real strong contribution.

Bessie Smith is an old blues singer I liked a lot. John Lennon has a nice voice.

I don't believe there is security. You could die tomorrow.

I don't like cassettes. They sound terrible. I record on them when I'm in the toilet writing songs, but that's about it.

I'm not the kind of cat that will OD. I am religious and mentally and spiritually clean. I don't do anything to an excess. I don't have any consuming pain inside me like many pop stars. I don't have a death wish.

I'm an old rocker. I used to appreciate Buddy Holly. I once carried Eddie Cochran's guitar for him when I was 8 years old.

It's like if you take acid, it burns out brain cells and they don't regrow. Rock is like that-it has killed beautiful people musically, physically and mentally.

Most people listen to hi-fi wrongly. Practically everyone has too much bass on because they think it's groovy. Bass has to be bright funk.

Weird Names of Music Performer's Children:

  • Rolan Bolan - A lot of people are very nasty on here. How would you feel if someone criticised how you name your child? Even if the child's name means nothing to you, it may mean an awful lot to the parent. As a person earlier noted, Marc Bolan's name is actually Feld. Submitted by: Chelsea
  • Rolan - Actually Bolan's birth name is Marc Feld, so if Bolan was just a stage name & he never changed it legally, his son's name would be Rolan Feld. Submitted by: Eric Andrews
  • Rolan Bolan - Cripes! Thank goodness Tanya Tucker never had such a rhyming fetish when naming kids! Can you imagine the results? Think about it, won't you? Submitted by: Hans Prepuce
  • Rolan Bolan - Get this, I heard he meant this as a counterpart to Zowie Bowie. That would make it even worse. Submitted by: bookcase
  • Rolan Bolan - Yes, I've got a rhyming dictionary with the money I've earned from my records...........sadly the inadvisable baby names dictionary wasn't available back then Submitted by: Jim A
