"Every true story ends in death" --Hemmingway
"I have seen hundreds of excellent "Drummers" who play music,
but I have only seen a small handfull of excellent "Musicians" who play drums. Always focus on the music, not the riff." --Matthew C. Abourezk
"hardly anyone bought the group's records when they first came out, but those who did all went on to form their own bands" --Brian Eno about the Velvet Underground
