A Quote by Elliot Easton on art, creativity, hope, ideas, motivation, music, people, thought, trying, and worry

How can you worry about pleasing people [critics] and what they're going to think? How can you do anything creative if the whole thing is motivated by trying to please somebody else? To me, the whole idea of what I thought art, or music, or anything creative was about pleasing yourself and hoping that whatever you're creating will reach someone else who'll see it on that level. To worry about someone picking it apart and discussing it element for element, and trying to knock you down or weaken it in any way doesn't amount to anything but a waste of paper.

A Quote by Elliot Easton on achievement, good, life, people, thinking, and work

I think one thing we went through was common to a lot of people: You work your whole life to achieve something, then you achieve it and find out that you still have good days and bad days. So you start thinking, 'Is that all there is?' After a while you calm down and get back to work.

A Quote by Elliot Easton on world

in

The highest form of guitar soloing is saying something in 16 bars and not wasting a note. You can't aspire to anything finer in a pop record. I've never gone for gratuitous soloing. The most predictable thing in the world is to wank on guitar for days on end. It's like weight lifting. I'm not impressed by it
