Quotes of the Day

I am reading A Change Is Gonna Come:Music, Race the Soul of America by Craig Werner. It's a great survey of how music fit in the social movements of America with an emphasis on the Black experience. It's really entertaining an enlightening.

Today I was reading about the blues and there are several great quotes in a matter of 3 pages:
Singing the blues is like being black twice.

BB King
By a conservative count, 180 percent of blues deal with sex or money. The extra 80 percent accounts for the times sex and money are the same damn thing.
Eddie Kirkland
Talking about Southern Soul Steve Cropper says:
It's a Southern sound, a below-the-Bible-Belt sound. It was righteous nasty.
