Benny Goodman

Benny Goodman

American musician, jazz and swing
I don't have any great love for Chicago. What the hell, a childhood around Douglas Park isn't very memorable. I remember the street fights and how you were afraid to cross the bridge 'cause the Irish kid on the other side would beat your head in. I left Chicago a long time ago.More Benny Goodman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

To this day, I don't like people walking on stage not looking good. You have to look good. If you feel special about yourself then you're going to play special.More Benny Goodman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I remember Glenn Miller coming to me once, before he had his own band, saying, How do you do it? How do you get started? It's so difficult. I told him, I don't know but whatever you do don't stop. Just keep on going.More Benny Goodman quotes [08/20/2011 12:08:36]
