sharing some interesting, insightful and sometimes provocative quotes from musicians that i've collected over the years. i've got more. this is just a few to get started.
"Know what you're trying to do before you do it. Turning knobs at random isn't enlightening any more than throwing paint at a wall blindfolded will let you paint a nice picture."
"I don't think anyone has exhausted the range of sound possible in a conventional rock band, but people do become slaves to their own easiest techniques."
"There is a lot of use of ProTools in professional studios, but this is mostly for the special effects it allows, not for sound quality. These special effects soon fall out of fashion, and I don't think this trend will define studios permanently."
"Find people who think like you and stick with them. Make only music you are passionate about. Work only with people you like and trust. Don't sign anything."
"No one comes to my shows so they'll feel safe and comfortable."
Ronnie James Dio
"The best subjects are always people, who never fail to amaze me by their unpredictability."
