I started singing on the radio in Los Angeles. I sang blues, but I would tend toward country blues.
– Georgia Holt
The Rolling Stones have been the best of all possible worlds: they have the lack of pretension and sentimentality associated with the blues, the rawness and toughness of hard rock, and the depth which always makes you feel that they are in the midst of saying something. They have never impressed me as being kitsch.
– Jon Landau
