Letter "R" » Roger Lewis Quotes
«I have to give Ibo (Cooper) his props, as a musician and the kind of musician who can lead a band or do anything musically. I can say that it was from him that I really learnt. Ibo was very disciplined, but moreover he knew the music. He had the training and was so able to teach many of us. He was fearless, because he knew the music. Musically, I must give him his props, big props.»
«It's more than a studio; it's a mixture of food and culture, among other things. It's the perfect way for us to establish working relationships with Jamaica, especially the younger generation and keep the continuity of the music.»
«Orson Welles, of 'War of the Worlds' fame is long dead, but his spirit lives on. I hope that the shock and outrage generated by Matt Christians' stunt don't stifle his flair for creating ways and means to pierce the ennui of his jaded eighth-grade students.»
«I think that one of the qualifications of artists should be a vow of celibacy. They should be confined to ruining only their own lives.»
«Hurricane Katrina may have silenced my hometown for now. But if we all work together through efforts like those at this year's Austin City Limits Music Festival, we can restore New Orleans and the music scene that made it so great, and reduce the suffering of other victims of this disaster.»
«With a passive tag, the transmissions are limited as the only signal comes from a transmitter/receiver and tend to be spasmodic.»
«They're living legends, man. We have separate sets and we don't actually play with them until toward the end of the set. We do a hymn together. Those guys have got to be in their 80s. But just being on the same stage with them is amazing. They sound great, man. They're singing the real gospel, the way gospel used to be. Their voices are pure and fine tuned like the finest wine you would ever want to taste in your life.»
«For us, it was business as usual; we really never stopped working. One of the guys in the band lost his house. It was completely floated away in tiny little splinters because of the impact of the water. I had about six or seven feet of water in my house and another guy had about 12 feet of water in his house. There are things we'd been saving for years and years. We lost everything materially. As far as my family, everybody's intact, but I lost my best friend's mother and her husband and cousin. They drowned in their house. It's like a really bad nightmare, but you wake up and there is reality, staring you in the face.»
«The music that we play makes your body move in strange ways that it has never moved before.»
«We are always on the road. That's what we do.»
