Dave Matthes
“That's the beautiful thing about innocence; even monsters have a pocketful of childhood memories with which to seek comfort with.”
Dave Matthes, Sleepeth Not, the Bastard

Shannon L. Alder
“Music is the beat of a drum that keeps time with our emotions.”
Shannon L. Alder

Nathan Squiers
“Brian came in heavy at that moment on his guitar, the rapid, high-pitched squeal ranging back and forth as his fingers flew along the frets. As the intro's tempo grew more rapid, Bekka heard Derek's subtle bass line as it worked its way in. After another few seconds Will came in, slow at first, but racing along to match the others' pace. When their combined efforts seemed unable to get any heavier, David jumped into the mix.

As the sound got nice and heavy, Bekka began to rock back-and-forth onstage. In front of her, hundreds of metal-lovers began to jump and gyrate to their music. She matched their movements for a moment, enjoying the connection that was being made, before stepping over to the keyboard that had been set up behind her. Sliding her microphone into an attached cradle, she assumed her position and got ready. Right on cue, all the others stopped playing, throwing the auditorium into an abrupt silence. Before the crowd could react, however, Bekka's fingers began to work the keys, issuing a rhythm that was much softer and slower than what had been built up. The audience's violent thrash-dance calmed at that moment and they began to sway in response.

Bekka smiled to herself.

This is what she lived for.”
Nathan Squiers, Death Metal

Maggie Stiefvater
“But that drummer – the one who could make his drum sound like water dropping into a bucket or like the footfalls of a giant or like rain scattering on a roof – he was the one to watch. He was the one who could make you forget yourself.”
Maggie Stiefvater, Ballad: A Gathering of Faerie

Amit Kalantri
“Music shouldn't be just a tune, it should be a touch.”
Amit Kalantri, Wealth of Words

Robin Sacredfire
“There’s a reason for the word heartbeat not be called beat of heart. The perfect woman only needs a good beat. The heart will follow. Emotions, when put in equilibrium with reason, create more miracles than any emotion, no matter how strong, deprived from reason. This is why it’s much easier to love a woman that can play the drums or any other instrument with rhythm, than one that believes in unreasonable magic, simply because there’s more magic in reason than in the lack of it. You see, loving someone that you truly want to love, someone you admire, someone you want to spend your time with, helping, sharing and growing together, makes much more sense than expecting someone to love you for no reason than your will, needs and desires. And when humans understand this, they will understand love, find it easily and never lose it again.”
Robin Sacredfire

Amit Kalantri
“Music is the fastest motivator in the world.”
Amit Kalantri, Wealth of Words

Moonshine Noire
“I could be the drumbeat in your chest like madness before a storm swirling restlessly.”
Moonshine Noire

Paul Bowles
“The insistent drums were an unwelcome reminder of the existence of another world, wholly autonomous, with its own necessities and patterns. The message they were beating out, over and over, was for her; it was saying, not precisely that she did not exist but rather that it did not matter whether she existed or not, that her presence was of no consequence to the rest of the cosmos. It was a sensation that suddenly paralyzed her with dread. There had never been any question of her “mattering”; it went without saying that she mattered, because she was important to herself. But what was the part of her to which she mattered?”
Paul Bowles, The Spider's House

“As the drummer, I know that drums fully support the band. Their rhythm keeps things within the pulse and contributes to the overall energy of each performance. I am a very balanced person and I realize that through my personal level of balance, I also outwardly balance Stjepan and Luka.”
Dušan Kranjc

“So what is it about evenings that makes you pensive and thoughtful? Is it the slightly wafting cold breeze that beckons you on a journey of soulful serenity? A cornucopia of feelings, emotions and nostalgic charm that reverberate into the mystic beats of a faraway drum.”
Avijeet Das

“Life is a paradiddle...

R-L-R-L-R-L-RR-L-R-L-R-L-R-LL... (repeat)

...put 1 stick in front of the other & find the zone!”
Ross R. Mason

Green Day
“What do you do when your kid can only count to four? Buy him a drumkit and call him gifted!
- Tré Cool, Flypside, 1992”
Green Day

“Wyrzucanie negatywnej energii stwarza wolną przestrzeń, w której energia życiowa może zacząć swobodnie krążyć. Oczy zaczynają błyszczeć, uśmiech wypływa na usta, a radość zaczyna przebijać się z wnętrza. Kiedy śpiewasz i bębnisz, nie możesz być smutny, rytm sprowadza Cię z powrotem do naturalnego pulsu życia i łączy z biciem serca Ziemi.”
Shirlie Roden, Sound Healing: How to Use the Healing Power of the Human Voice

“It's all about Perfection or the tolerance of Imperfection”
Stijn Moreels

Paul Fleischman
“The red-jacketed band stirred to life. The first musician raised his trumpet. The trombone dipped. The drumstick rose. Lea lowered her clarinet. It had been Brent's idea not to have their insturments rise and fall in unison. The staggered motion gave it a more exciting rhythm.”
Paul Fleischman, Whirligig

“Interestingly, bonobo percussionists prefer a tempo of 280 beats per minute, the syllabic rate at which most humans speak.”
Dr Susan Block

Howard Bahr
“They had three cadences, these spectral drummers, which they called First Kings, Second Kings, and Revelations. Going into a fight, they went from one cadence to another with no apparent signal until the officers began to shout commands and men began to fall. Then the drummers began a solemn drill beat that Bushrod believed would be the muttering undertone of every nightmare he would ever have.”
Howard Bahr, The Black Flower: A Novel of the Civil War

“The passion for techno is older than techno itself. The passion for drums is older than their invention. And a time will come when the reason for both surpasses them.”
Dan Van Casteele
