Wilson Douglas quote

Posted by sprout333 on Saturday, April 12, 2008

And the way I feel about music, I think these musicians - I do it myself - each one is expressing his past, his present, what he should have been, and what he hopes to be.  And he’s expressing all of his sorrows, all of his happiness.  - if you study him close you can almost read his life.  And I think when they’re all playing good, clean, honest music - banjo-picking, guitar-playing, fiddling, what have you - I think you’re just as close to heaven on this earth as you’ll ever be.  If you’ve got the music in you.  You know what I mean?  I believe that.  I don’t mean I put that above a hereafter or above an eternal life.  But in this world, that’s my Paradise.  In this world.

from the 2005 re-release of the 1974 Rounder LP, Wilson Douglas: The Right Hand Fork of Rush’s Creek (Rounder CD0047)
