"Like most of my pieces the second half is in a different pitch to the first half. I didn’t realise I was doing that for a lot of years until maybe 10 years ago I thought ‘oh that’s what I do!’ and I was unhappy to know that because I don’t like to know what I do, I like to think it’s instinctive. I know I have a system but, I don’t really wanna know what the system is" - Great insight from trumpet player Bob Brookmeyer
"Not everybody in the band is equal. Not everybody in the band does the same amount of work. Y’know the bass player and drummer might show up and contruibute their parts but they don’t write any music, they dont’w rite any lyrics y’know, they don’t call any booking agents, they don’t set up meetings with managers but they’re there doing their job" - Wayne Kramer of the MC5
I fucking admire your band a hell of a lot Wayne but fuck you. Fuck your arse.
