Terry Callier Quotes
"I started in doo-wop groups when I was about 12,"
"And what set the best ones apart was that they wrote their own material. Some of the poetry was fantastic: the Moroccos had a song called Bang Goes Your Heart and the Eldorados had Crazy Little Mama, and they're just beautiful I still listen to them today. They made me realise that you have to be original."
"After all that had happened over the years, I wasn't looking to be a musician again because I had got used to having that pay cheque every two weeks. I've been inspired by Billie Holiday and Miles Davis, and I think that Hank Williams was a genius, but those people were never going to do anything but make music and live that life. That's not me. If I hadn't lost my job, I wouldn't be here now."
