Phil Collins

"I'm not a singer who plays a bit of drums. I'm a drummer that sings a bit."

Aretha Franklin

"Being a singer is a natural gift. It means I'm using to the highest degree possible the gift that God gave me to use. I'm happy with that."

Patti Smith

"If I have any regrets, I could say that I'm sorry I wasn't a better writer or a better singer."

Quincy Jones

"A great song can make a terrible singer sound good, but a good singer - you put a great song on top of that, you're really in great shape!."
