I have a dread of sounding pretentious and try not to talk too much about what I do.
If you have a great-sounding guitar that's a quality instrument and a good amp, and you know how to make the guitar talk, that's the key. It starts with the guitar and knowing what it should sound and feel like.
Probably my two biggest musical influences were the Everly Brothers and the Beatles, in chronological order. Both of them have had a very simple-sounding musical style that's actually quite complex as far as popular songs are concerned.
Some things don't wind up sounding like you'd expect, which is just as well.
Some people rehearse to a point where they're robotic, and they sound like they have memorized their presentation and didn't take it to the next level. Going from sounding memorized and canned to sounding natural is a lot of work.
The more defects a man may have, the older he is, the less lovable, the more resounding his success.
The more faithfully you listen to the voices within you, the better you will hear what is sounding outside.
Leftism in all its forms must be halted and turned back resoundingly.
I think now, more than anytime I can remember, bands are sounding pretty similar whether they're English or American, from Manchester or London... or Leeds or Welsh or Irish.
At risk of sounding foully pompous I think that writers' groups are probably very useful at the beginning of a writing career.
Fame is the echo of actions, resounding them to the world, save that the echo repeats only the last art, but fame relates all, and often more than all.
We have too many high-sounding words, and too few actions that correspond with them.
Hearing, which, by the motion of the air, informs us of the motion of sounding or vibrating bodies.
I like the sound of a Silvertone amp for myself. It's kind of cleaner guitar sounds when necessary, maybe a little less metal-sounding. But it really doesn't matter what amp I play through; it's really the way I voice chords and play guitar, how I strike the strings.
I don't find the business easy. The moment you start talking about the business, you start sounding like someone in Spinal Tap.
