Music Quotes

Black History Music Quotes

Wanna make it in blues? Maybe change your name + a few quotes to inspire your music.

Muddy Waters born McKinley Morgenfield
had a magical name. "Muddy" for his roots in fertile Mississippi Delta and "Waters" for the great Mississippi River that spread his music around the world.

Stevie Ray Vaughn
SRV brought a real ray and sunburst to blues music and he died as he lived in a bolt (ray) of lightening.

Howlin Wolf (Chester Burnett)
Howling Wolf was the archtype blues musician, a lone wolf, outcast with a guitar and mean dispostion. His nasty, nasal sound (howlin) was enough to make your skin crawl. Gives me the shivers just thinking about it.

Eric Clapton
Eric Clapton was born to applause... "Clap- ton" as in tons of people clapping at tons of Eric Clapton concerts.

Little Walter
Little Walter played nasty blues harp licks and died in street fight... maybe he just didn't like being called by his real name - Marion!

Robert Johnson
Nothing spectacular about his name... just goes to show it still comes down to the music!
