Gig Quotations

I've never missed a gig yet. Music makes people happy, and that's why I go on doing it - I like to see everybody smile.
Buddy Guy

I use a Bruce Lee technique: 'The way of no way.' He had the idea that he would learn everything, so that whoever he had to fight, he could improvise anything. The best way of starting a gig is just to not think of anything - to clear your mind, not in an empty Zen state, but more just to go on and see where you go.
Eddie Izzard

As a musician I'm about expressing what's inside, and I think everyone has a song in them that they need to get out, whatever their gig is.
Flea

I've never told anyone this. But I suffer from terrible stage fright. True. You can't tell though, can you? Unbelievable, the panic. I nearly die of fear before I go on stage. Something wicked. I can't eat a thing the day before a gig. It'd make me vomit.
John Lydon

The worst gig story I have is from a club in Alabama that I think is still up and running, so I won't name the name of the club. We got hired in there to play, and the owner was pretty annoying. He kept coming up to me during the show and asking me to play 'Purple Rain.'
Jason Aldean
