Welcome to GTiD's Rock Quotes!
Rock is pretty hard to pin-point, as a genre. There are many off-shoots, and styles that can loosely be classified as rock. So this part of the music quotes section groups both the obvious and the not-so-obvious. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did compiling this for you!

Rock Quotes from all the rock greats: Jimi Hendrix quotes, John Lennon quotes, Jim Morrison quotes, Frank Zappa quotes, Mick Jagger quotes, Eric Clapton quotes, Robert Fripp quotes, Trent Reznor quotes, Bradley Nowell quotes, Steve Howe quotes, Robbie Robertson quotes, Jimmy Page quotes, Tom Waits quotes, James Brown quotes, Tori Amos quotes, Bryan Ferry quotes, John Denver quotes, and more to come!

Mick Jagger Quotes

The jazz musician, critic and journalist George Melly once commented on Mick Jagger's wrinkles.

"Those aren't wrinkles, George, they're laughter lines", protested Jagger.

"Mick," replied Melly, "nothing's that funny!"

Eric Clapton Quotes

"My driving philosophy about making music is that you can reduce it all down to one note if that note is played with the right kind of sincerity."
-Eric Clapton

Robert Fripp Quotes

"Music is the wine that fills the cup of silence."
-Robert Fripp

"To me, art is the capacity to experience one's innocence: craft is how you get to that point. Maturity in a musician would be the point at which one is innocent at will. At that point the relationship between music and the musician is direct and reliable.
The relationship with music is always mysterious: when it works, you can never tell. You can never guarantee when it's going to work. You can only to put yourself in a place where it's more likely to happen."

-Robert Fripp

"Is it humiliating for me to appear in public? Yes; for anyone in their right mind it's humiliating.
We're all turkeys, you know... you only have to put a person on stage; nothing can be hidden from the audience. And if you are a turkey, and we all are turkeys, it's obvious to everyone that we are the turkey that we are, and that's humiliating.
If one works under the deluded notion that the musician creates music, then the humiliation of playing in front of people cuts the egotism down to a point where one can come into a better relationship with music, and realizing that we really are feeble creatures; then one can give music the respect which it deserves.
Humiliation is inevitable, painful, and if on has the strength to bear it, very useful."

-Robert Fripp

"Music so wishes to be heard that it sometimes calls on unlikely characters to give it voice."
-Robert Fripp

Trent Reznor Quotes

"I think, fundamentally, music is something inherently people love and need and relate to, and a lot of what's out right now feels like McDonalds. It's quick-fix. You kind of have a stomachache afterwards."
-Trent Reznor

Bradey Nowell Quotes

"It seems like people get afraid of a certain music if they can't pigeonhole it to their satisfaction... Good music is good music, and that should be enough for anybody."
-Bradley Nowell

Steve Howe Quotes

"...although one can get very clever at home, progress comes a lot quicker if you step into a room with other people and start playing."
-Steve Howe (Yes)

Robbie Robertson Quotes

"Music should never be harmless."
-Robbie Robertson

Jimmy Page Quotes

"...if you wanted to chart new territories and head off over the horizon, you had to make sure you weren't overly influenced by what others were doing. So it didn't matter what other bands were doing... we did what we were doing."
-Jimmy Page

Tom Waits Quotes

"I like beautiful melodies telling me terrible things."
-Tom Waits

James Brown Quotes

"The one thing that can solve most of our problems is dancing..."
-James Brown

"When I'm on stage, I'm trying to do one thing: bring people joy."
-James Brown

Tori Amos Quotes

"The most important thing to me as a songwriter is the breath. The most important thing I could say to somebody is, 'Sometimes I just breathe you in'."
-Tori Amos

Bryan Ferry Quotes

"You can never get silence anywhere nowadays, have you noticed?"
-Bryan Ferry

John Denver Quotes

"Music does bring people together. It allows us to experience the same emotions. People everywhere are the same in heart and spirit. No matter what language we speak, what color we are, the form of our politics or the expression of our love and our faith, music proves: We are the same."
-John Denver
