"Imagine there's no countries

It isn't hard to do

Nothing to kill or die for

And no religion too

Imagine all the people

Living life in peace"

-- Imagine ~ John Lennon

Rest in peace, John. We miss you.

These next 2 quotes are from the booklet that comes with the Stevie Ray Vaughan (SRV) box set.

"I use heavy strings, tune low, play hard and floor it. Floor it, that's technical talk."

SRV

" You're playing someplace and you just hit a note and people start screaming - that's it. You gave them a thrill, or you soothed them. That's what the blues do to me."

SRV

"Music scene is crazy

Bands start up

Each and every day

I saw another one just the other day

A special new band"

~ Cut Your Hair - Pavement

[used as the intro to the last two music books I read - one about alternative music in America and one about alternative music in the UK]

"What came first, the music or the misery? People worry about kids playing with guns, or watching violent videos, that some sort of culture of violence will take them over. Nobody worries about kids listening to thousands, literally thousands of songs about heartbreak, rejection, pain, misery and loss. Did I listen to pop music because I was miserable? Or was I miserable because I listened to pop music?"

~ John Cusack as Rob Gordon in "High Fidelity"

"How I wish, how I wish you were here

We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year

Running over the same old ground, what have we found?

The same old fears; wish you were here"

Freedom's just another word for nothin' left to lose

Nothin' don't mean nothin' hon' if it ain't free, no no..

Me And Bobby McGee ~ Janis Joplin

How does it feel, how does it feel?

To be on your own, without a home

Like a complete unknown, like a rolling stone

Like A Rolling Stone ~ Bob Dylan

Maybe I'll be there to shake your hand

Maybe I'll be there to share the land

That they'll be givin' away

When we all live together

I'm talkin' 'bout together now

Share The Land ~ The Guess Who

Maybe it's a bit too long to add in it's entire, but I love these lyrics from Demon Days (by Gorillaz)

In These Demon Days It So Cold Inside

So Hard For A Good Soul To Survive

You Can't Even Trust The Air You Breathe, Cuz

Mother Earth Wants Us All To Leave

When Lies Become Reality

You Numb Yourself with drugs and TV

Pick Yourself Up Its A Brand New Day

Don't Turn Yourself Round, Don't Burn Yourself

Turn Yourself, Turn Yourself Around Into The Sun

In younger days, I told myself my life would be my own

And I'd leave the place where sunshine never shone

For my life's too short for waiting when I see the rising sun

Then I know again that I must carry on

BADFINGER :bow: :bow: :bow:
