Misc :
"Music is a form of conversation. When you speak with friends, sometimes you say a lot in a short period of time, sometimes you take a break. If you say the same thing to someone everytime they see you they will get bored with you. Try to think of a new thing to say every time you play music. (Advice from Chubby Jackson, 1992)
