READ SOME quotation, and comment them!

Music

Music is good for everybody. They say it soothes the savage beast. Well, I think theirs a beast in all of us. So let’s get some more music and soothe all the beasts out there.” ~ B. B. King

Life “We are here because there are things that need our help. Like the planet. Like each other. Like animals. The world is like a garden, and we are its protectors.” ~ B. B. King

Blues

“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.” ~ B. B. King

“He was Jimi Hendrix! He didn’t sound like anybody else but himself. He was like Charlie Parker in his way of playing, he played well, he was a person that made waves. When you heard Jimi Hendrix you knew it was Jimi Hendrix, he introduced himself in his instrument… You know, many radio stations play records and a lot of the times they don’t call out the names who you just listened to, but when they play Jimi Hendrix, you don’t have to tell me, [you know] it’s Jimi Hendrix.” ~ B. B. King

Playing the guitar

Playing the guitar is like telling the truth – you never have to worry about repeating the same [lie] if you told the truth. You don’t have to pretend, or cover up. If someone asks you again, you don’t have to think about it or worry about it because there it is. It’s you.” ~ B. B. King
