Vi kommer att presentera 35 inspirerande citat från självaste Ringo Starr i den här serien om 7 avsnitt. Fem citat om dagen tror vi blir lagom att presentera.
Dessutom tror vi att det kan vara bra träning på det engelska språket också, inte sant?!
Citat nr 1
Every time, my syncopation is different, because I can never play the same fill twice. I just can’t, never have been able to. Even as a Beatle, they’d say, ’Oh, double-track that.’ I don’t know how you do that, because when I’m in a fill I’m sort of this blackout, just this pure me coming out and I can’t pure me the same, twice. So, that’s that.
Citat nr 2
I’ve never really done anything to create what has happened. It creates itself.
I’m here because it happened. But I didn’t do anything to make it happen apart
from saying ‘Yes’
Citat nr 3
I play weird. I’m always just behind. We [drummers] only have so much room. We’re not guitarists.
Citat nr 4
At the end of the day, I can end up just totally wacky, because I’ve made mountains out of molehills. With meditation, I can keep them as molehills.
*) molehill = mullvadshög. wacky = knäpp
In 1989 I sort of got back into the music business and one of the reasons I got back in is [that] I put the first All-Stars band together. It’s actually progressed from that every other year, or every two years, I’ve put that together… more and more realizing that’s what I do.
