blues in a quote

"Another thing to do with the blues is how they were recorded. They were done on the quick, and some of that stuff was made on wire, not even tape, let alone digital."

"Once I was checking to hotel and a couple saw my ring with Blues on it. They said, 'You play blues. That music is so sad.' I gave them tickets to the show, and they came up afterwards and said, 'You didn't play one sad song.'"

"I remember listening to the radio as a kid and finding that the songs always made me feel more peaceful. Funny, but the more hurtin' the music was, the better it made me feel. I think of that now when I write my songs. I may not be feelin' the blues myself, but I'm writing them for other people who have a hard life."

"The blues is losing someone you love and not having enough money to immerse yourself in drink."

"I didn't want to go out and change anything. I just wanted to make the music that was part of my background, which was rock and blues and hip-hop."

"Since I was a kid, I've had an absolute obsession with particular kinds of American music. Mississippi Delta blues of the Thirties, Chicago blues of the Fifties, West Coast music of the mid-Sixties - but I'd never really touched on dark Americana."

"The blues was like that problem child that you may have had in the family. You was a little bit ashamed to let anybody see him, but you loved him. You just didn't know how other people would take it."

"I have as much input to the blues I just never got the chance, the opportunity or maybe the respect."

"I grew up with a heavy diet of gospel, folk, and blues because those are kind of the cornerstones of traditional American music."

"I didn't want to go out and change anything. I just wanted to make the music that was part of my background, which was rock and blues and hip-hop."
