Lost WSM quote

  1. farmerjones
    Lost to me. I'm almost certain i read it on here. He was talking about his song writing. and said something like, "Just about anybody could write these songs all you have to do is reach up and grab them."

    It sounded very romantic for Mr. Monroe, but he had a soft side too.

    Hey, while im here. I read the Fretboard Journal's David Grier interview. David, as young lad, would ride up front in the bus will Mr. Monroe.
    It's was a terrific story. But i don't think i read that quote there, or did i?

    I have seen a quote like that too, can't remember it verbatim. I'm sure that someone will fill us in.

    "You know, I never wrote a tune in my life. All that music's in the air around you all the time. I was just the first one to reach up and pull it out." Bill Monroe
    I found this, I have no idea as to the veracity of it.
