And yet I've found Petrucci to have both. Incredible how tastes can differ, huh?

The genius of Jimi Hendrix was that he was so overdosed on drugs all the time, yet he could stand up straight and play very well.

Mick Jagger : Is that my drummer? Come down for a drink
Charlie Watts (after getting out of bed, having a wash, a shave, putting on a Saville Row suit, going to Jagger's room and nearly punching him through a window) : I am not your drummer, you're my singer.

Charlie Watts, cool as a cucumber as always.

Bob Dylan - At times in my life the only place I have been happy is when I am on stage

Jimi Hendrix - Sometimes you want to give up the guitar, you'll hate the guitar. But if you stick with it, you're gonna be rewarded.

“Apparently the highest compliment our culture grants artists nowadays is to be in an ad — ideally naked and purring on the hood of a new car. I have adamantly and repeatedly refused this dubious honor, ... While the court can't make me active in radio, I am asking it to make me radioactive to advertisers.”

Tom Waits.

Yep Zappa's quotes are legendary. I like

"Without deviation from the norm, 'progress' is not possible"


But there's heaps of great ones, they fill whole webpages:
