History is a gallery of pictures in which there are few originals and many copies.
Alexis de Tocqueville
My first band, Kid Wicked, we did half covers and half originals.
The premise of 'The Originals' are places that have been open 50, 60, 75, 100 years or longer that are still doing it right that maybe a lot of people, particularly the younger generations, have not even thought about.
The worse my drawings were, the more beautiful did the originals appear.
John James Audubon
But I can't say that I didn't like John Hammond's performances often better than the originals.
We were playing popular music, but we were doing our own arrangements because we were too lazy to sit down and figure out the originals.
I prefer writing originals.
An original is a creation motivated by desire. Any reproduction of an originals motivated be necessity. It is marvelous that we are the only species that creates gratuitous forms. To create is divine, to reproduce is human.
So it just goes to show you that it was always the Hells Angels first. They were the originals and all other clubs try and imitate what the Hells Angels have already done.
To some degree, yeah, because I have to play a certain number of originals that might be considered avant-garde material. I realize though, that only a few people in the audience actually know what that music is, or understand it.
My mother was a children's librarian. I remember when traditional stories were revised for modern audiences until they bore only a nodding acquaintance with the originals, but were released as 'authentic Indian stories' when they were, in fact, nothing of the kind.
