Once and Again...Once Again

Cool quote by Snuffy Walden:

"Talking about music is like dancing about architecture," Walden
quipped. "I just try to listen," he said, interpreting what the producers
are saying and coming up with the right sounds that "carry the essence
of what you want it to feel."

[note from Jill: I like this cause it reminds me of my favorite quote: "Talking about art is like trying to french kiss over the telephone"~Terry Allen"]
