    Musiker: hoffnungslose Romantiker, die, ganz die Faulpelze, die sie meist sind, immer nur die eine Hälfte – die genialische Seite: das irrationale Moment – betonen und darüber das Handwerk vergessen.

    Deshalb hier noch ein schönes Zitat von Mozart: “Euch Dilettanten muss man schelten, denn es finden bei euch gewöhnlich zwei Dinge statt: entweder ihr habt keine eigenen Gedanken, und da nehmt ihr fremde; oder wenn ihr eigene Gedanken habt, so wisst ihr nicht damit umzugehen.”

    Frank Zappa darf bei einer solchen Compilation nicht fehlen…

    Information ist nicht Wissen, Wissen ist nicht Weisheit, Weisheit ist nicht Wahrheit, Wahrheit ist nicht Schönheit, Schönheit ist nicht Liebe, Liebe ist nicht Musik, Musik ist das Beste.
