Zitat des Tages von Jimi Hendrix:
When I die, I want people to play my music, go wild and freak out and do anything they want to do.
We have time, there's no big rush.
When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace.
Blues is easy to play, but hard to feel.
It all has to come from inside, though, I guess.
When I played God Bless The Queen, I was wondering if they was gonna dig us, then quite naturally I'd go on and try to get it together.
When we go to play, you flip around and flash around and everything, and then they're not gonna see nothin' but what their eyes see. Forget about their ears.
Music is a safe kind of high.
Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens.
I was trying to do too many things at the same time, which is my nature. But I was enjoying it, and I still do enjoy it.
When I die, just keep playing the records.
Music makes me high on stage, and that's the truth. It's like being almost addicted to music.
I'm the one that has to die when it's time for me to die, so let me live my life, the way I want to.
I've been imitated so well I've heard people copy my mistakes.
It's funny how most people love the dead, once you're dead, you're made for life.
I used to live in a room full of mirrors; all I could see was me. I take my spirit and I crash my mirrors, now the whole world is here for me to see.
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
See, that's nothing but blues, that's all I'm singing about. It's today's blues.
You have to go on and be crazy. Craziness is like heaven.
The story of life is quicker than the blink of an eye, the story of love is hello, goodbye.
The reflection of the world is blues, that's where that part of the music is at. Then you got this other kind of music that's tryin' to come around.
I don't have nothing to regret at all in the past, except that I might've unintentionally hurt somebody else or something.
I have this one little saying, when things get too heavy just call me helium, the lightest known gas to man.
Excuse me while I kiss the sky.
The time I burned my guitar it was like a sacrifice. You sacrifice the things you love. I love my guitar.
I try to use my music to move these people to act.
I'm gonna put a curse on you and all your kids will be born completely naked.
I got a pet monkey called Charlie Chan.
In order to change the world, you have to get your head together first.
Imagination is the key to my lyrics. The rest is painted with a little science fiction.
Rock is so much fun. That's what it's all about - filling up the chest cavities and empty kneecaps and elbows.
Even Castles made of sand, fall into the sea, eventually.
All I'm writing is just what I feel, that's all. I just keep it almost naked. And probably the words are so bland.
Sometimes you want to give up the guitar, you'll hate the guitar. But if you stick with it, you're gonna be rewarded.
I wish they'd had electric guitars in cotton fields back in the good old days. A whole lot of things would've been straightened out.
My nature just changes.
