Michael Rolfe Gira

American musician, author, and artist.
Many of the songs were written as a way of paying tribute to specific people, but in the end the songs took on a life of their own and I didn't worry about accuracy or biographical truth, so it's not a problem.More Michael Rolfe Gira quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I never could read Foucault. I find philosophy tedious. All of my knowledge comes from reading novels and some history. I read Being and Nothingness and realized that I remembered absolutely nothing when I finished it. I used to go to the library every day and read every day for eight hours. I’d dropped out of high school and had to teach myself. I read Sartre without any background. I just forced myself and I learned nothing.More Michael Rolfe Gira quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Nina Simone was an entertainer. Bob Dylan was an entertainer. Anyone that can occupy a piece of music and make the air catch on fire at that moment is a true entertainer. That's how I view it. That's what I was meant to do. I love doing it. That's why I'm on earth.More Michael Rolfe Gira quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I am definitely less and less interested in music made by people that exist today, people that are living. I just see them as part of the whole stupid process of the music business, desperate (even if they feign indifference) to get noticed, trying to "make it" in the stinking music business, to become "famous" etc, and it disgusts me.More Michael Rolfe Gira quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I don't throw my body down on the stage at all anymore because I'm sure I'd snap like a twig.More Michael Rolfe Gira quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
