Tommy Chong
I don’t want any of my records to sound like one style throughout. That’s why I choose different grooves and songs: tunes that are sensitive and slow as well as pieces that are abstract and fast. The approach I want to take with my records is to give the listener a variety of grooves, concepts, and composers.
Jason Moran
Bunty is a piglet that comes up with a lot of funny antics. Dancing is among its strengths and I’m glad people are liking the music video where it grooves to popular Telugu songs. I have made the character very likeable.

Alfred Lord Tennyson

White people get nervous and speed things up. You don’t have to be in a hurry because you ain’t got nothing to gain and you ain’t got nothin’ to lose. And that’s where the groove lies.
Billy Gibbons
I am the ‘Cosmic Dancer’ who dances his way out of the womb and into the tomb on ‘Electric Warrior.’ I’m not frightened to get up there and groove about in front of six million people on TV because it doesn’t look cool. That’s the way I would do it at home.
Marc Bolan

Robert Trujillo

Leon Bridges
People misinterpret my emotions towards Nirvana because I’ve said things about how something happened with grunge that took a little bit of fun out of things.

Brandon Flowers
I played in Velvet Revolver, which is a raw, bombastic blues band with a punk rock edge to it. It’s like everything is based around the blues, no matter what the groove is.

Ravi Babu

Laurel Lea
I think there’s a lot of death metal or doom metal dudes that somehow or another find a groove in it.
Vinnie Paul
Having my son on drums has made a huge difference. I can’t stress this strongly enough, in terms of the groove space and style that Joachim gave me to instinctively play what I felt in a more free way, rather than feeling constricted. That’s true on record and on stage.
Ry Cooder
Some machine-y music is great, but you can apply any groove to any song now – there’s literally a massive drop-down menu on most programs. And that’s what takes the human being out of the process.
Jon Hopkins
I tend to think about so many different things on a recording. I’ll be trying to tune into what the drummer’s doing, trying to keep everyone playing the groove and other things like making sure the piano’s in a nice pocket.
Adam Granduciel
My guitar-playing always included bass lines, melody lines, and rhythm-guitar grooves.
You can always tell when the groove is working or not.
The blessing of being able to write music and let music speak for itself is you let the melodies and let the lyrics and the groove talk to people instead of me talking to people.
Any time I’m trying to find that groove on a big tempo song, I go back and listen to some Aerosmith records. ‘Love in an Elevator,’ ‘Rag Doll,’ all that stuff was really great music. It’s something that I still dig and go back and listen to.
Chris Young
That’s the best way to feed the human mind. That’s how Bob Marley did it. He never put it in your face. After you got the groove, you were just singing the hooks, because you thought it was cool.

Thomas Dolby
