My favorite musicians for the most part are no longer alive. And if they are, they are really old and no longer with the band or touring.
These are a few that I would go to (who are no longer alive or groups with one or all members no longer alive)
- Woodstock (concert)
- Jimi Hendrix
- George Harrison
- John Lennon
- Janis Joplin
- The Mamas and the Papas
- The Grateful Dead
- Bob Marley
- The Moody Blues
It provides such inspiration. Many of my early pottery works were inspired because of music:
Music makes us happy, it can make us sad... It has the ability to spark an emotion. From this emotion, I derive creative inspiration. In fact I find that I attach memories to certain songs, and to reaccess this emotion, all I have to do is listen to the song.
Right now, this is my inspiration. It has helped me crawl out of my creative writers block. It wasn't until the other day, when I listened to the following song that I remembered when I can't find inspiration all I need to do is turn on one of my favorite albums.
These are my knitting thoughts for the day. What inspires you?
