Roger Brown kürzlich in Nashville, TN bei der IBMA World of Bluegrass Week (via The Bluegrass Blog):

"If the blues is the music of the earth — of the soul, of heartbreak, loneliness, disappointment, booze, murder, infidelity, sin and transgression ... and if gospel music is the music of heaven — of the spirit, of aspiration to goodness, of selflessness and forgiveness, hope and joy, it seems to me that the beauty of both be-bop and bluegrass is the fusion of these two opposites — heaven and earth, spirit and soul, of our best selves and our broken selves. Music that is spiritual without forgetting the human struggle, and soulful without losing hope for something better."
