Bass Guitar Mag: What is it with these sound men these days?
Billy Sheehan: I know, I know. And being a bass player is notoriously tough when you are playing live. Unfortunately the bass is called a bass- but so are all low frequencies. The sound guy goes out in front, and you ask him, "Can you hear bass?" "Yeah. I can hear bass." He doesn't hear your bass guitar, but he hears some low-end rumble. I wish guitars were called trebles, because then guitarists would know exactly what we are talking about. " you hear treble?" Yeah I hear treble."
"He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal
cord would fully suffice...Heroism at command, senseless brutality, deplorable love-of- country stance - how violently I hate all this; how despicable and ignoble war is...I would rather be torn to shreds than be part of so base an action. It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder."
James Madison, while a United States Congressman
"If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy."
In his famous speech, Henry shouted,
"What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"
Robert Fripp - website
We recognise in others what we know most deeply in ourselves.
He who dares not offend cannot be honest.
If freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.
