What Makes Them Tick


Snipped from Written in My Soul: Rock’s Great Songwriters…Talk About Creating Their Music

“Bill Monroe once said he got his best thinking done when people were talking to him. I always liked that.
…Not a whole lot of real thought goes into this stuff. It’s more or less remembering things and taking it down.”

Bob Dylan

“Really, I picked up the guitar because I wanted to talk to somebody. That’s really about the size of it.”

Bruce Springsteen

“What you write about comes from what you see and do. It doesn’t come from space. If you’re short of ideas for songs get your ass up and go walk around in the city. You’ll get an idea in fifteen seconds.”

Pete Townshend
