I don't think the Bonzo Dog could have evolved in America, nor could the old Nice: because of their musical discipline. This is one thing that British groups do have, a sort of discipline. Sometimes it can get a bit soulless, but on the whole I think it's preferable to the American alternative.
I have a very musical family from my Scottish roots.
Carice van Houten
I would do a musical, but I can't sing.
The most consistent musical experience I had growing up was church music.
One of the interesting things about having little musical knowledge is that you generate surprising results sometimes; you move to places you wouldn't if you knew better.
My parents were what I like to call proper musical fans. Lots of Sondheim was played in the car.
A lot of people ask me why I don't expand and explore other musical areas, but I like the plain three- and four-chord rock-and-roll that I call the the semi-blues.
I've dreamt of being in a movie musical for a long time. For some reason I never even thought 'Les Mis' would be possible.
To do a musical takes a tremendous amount of energy because you have to act and sing at the same time. And everything has to be precise. Because you can't forget the lyrics because the band keeps playing, you know, and you're under a certain amount of pressure.
We really were a very musical family. Father managed to buy us a small pump organ, and I just loved this instrument.
I totally love to act. I don't care if it's a musical, a comedy. I just like to work and interact with other people.
I wanted to be on Broadway, but in musical comedy.
I have to say I have an incredible musical education because of my father.
I never thought about becoming a professional singer, but I am in touch with Bono about releasing a musical movie. It will be about an Irish band during the '70s who are looking for fortune in Las Vegas. I should play the singer of the band but I don't want to sing in front of anybody.
I never knew I'd be in a musical, let alone win an award for one.
I've always played comedy. My background is musical comedy theatre, and that's really where my training is.
I could hear music playing in the background of works by certain authors, like Poe and Shakespeare. And I discovered Nikki Giovanni when I was in eighth grade. Her writing has a musical energy with pulse and rhythm, almost like jazz or hip-hop.
I wouldn't succeed at musical theater.
I was heavily involved in musical theater.
I love to sing! To be in a movie with musical number is the coolest thing ever!
I loved performing in the 'High School Musical' movies - that didn't seem like work - but the gym felt like torture!
I think that if I had grown up and had been in show business and the movies twenty five, thirty years earlier, I think I would have made a lot more musical movies.
I've made three musical movies which is pretty good considering that not many are made but I was lucky in other ways. I came along when independent movies were starting to boom.
My musical taste has always been wide. I started out as a folky before I moved on to blues and soul.
I never learned to verbalize an abstract musical concept. No thank you. The whole point of being a serious musician is to avoid verbalization whenever you can.
