Re: Quote of the Day !!! C'mon!!!

"There's no way to measure his greatness or magnitude as a person or as a player. I don't think any eulogizing will do him justice. He was that great, much more than a superb musician, with an uncanny ear and dexterity. He's the very spirit personified of whatever is Muddy River country at its core and screams up into the spheres. He really had no equal. To me he wasn't only a musician and friend, he was more like a big brother who taught and showed me more than he'll ever know. There's a lot of spaces and advances between The Carter Family, Buddy Holly and, say, Ornette Coleman, a lot of universes, but he filled them all without being a member of any school. His playing was moody, awesome, sophisticated, hypnotic and subtle. There's no way to convey the loss. It just digs down really deep."

- Bob Dylan's press release regarding Jerry Garcia's death

“Nobody stopped thinking about those psychedelic experiences. Once you've been to some of those places, you think,
''How can I get back there again but make it a little easier on myself?''” ~ Jerry Garcia

"Really I'd like to dissapear gracefully and not leave behind any legacy to hang people up. I dont want people agonizing over who or what I was when I was here, when I'm not here any more. I would like to be thought of as a competent musician. That would be good. I’d like that." ~ Jerry Garcia

The reason I got involved in public service, by and large, if I had to credit one thinker, one person, it would be Ayn Rand.
--Paul Ryan

Money is the barometer of a society's virtue.

Paul Ryan and Ayn Rand are both immoral, self-centered scum.
