"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there’s something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It’s the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part."
"You don’t get an opportunity like that every day, and you can’t let nerves, doubt, worry or intimidation get in the way. As soon as you do, you could blow it. I knew I could do it. I knew I could handle it."
Richie Faulkner, on auditioning for Judas Priest.
I think that’s a good way to approach those few life-changing opportunities that come along.
