Funk Quotations

I am in love with old school funk and soul music. That's what I grew up listening to, and I want to bring that style back with my music. I love artists like Stevie Wonder, Donna Summer, Aretha Franklin, Michael Jackson, Earth, Wind, & Fire, Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake, and more!
Raini Rodriguez

Funk, I don't think I have anything to do with funk. I've never considered myself funky.
David Bowie

If you listen to a lot of old funk records, the drums are really small. But you don't perceive it like that because the groove is so heavy.
Lenny Kravitz

Funk is the absence of any and everything you can think of, but the very essence of all that is. And saying that, I'm saying funk is anything that we create in our minds that we want to do, what we want to be, but we don't have the resources.
Bootsy Collins

One of my strongest memories is my father playing bongos in the living room in Detroit listening to Motown radio. He was this skinny white bald guy, but he was really moved by blues and Motown and funk.
Sufjan Stevens
