Jocko Willink
A Herd of Turtles’ is the only song on ‘Behold Electric Guitar’ that is not strictly instrumental. But instead of singing, I am reciting a poem. My poem is about overcoming challenges.
Paul Gilbert

Geoff Hoon
In terms of building consumer products, the U.S. and China are ahead of India. The interesting opportunity for India is whenever there is a disruption in technology, it gives every country a chance to leapfrog and take a lead. To take an example, China is leaping ahead in growing the China electric vehicle ecosystem.
Andrew Ng
Electric cars are not going to take the market by storm, but it’s going to be a gradual improvement.
Carlos Ghosn

Gary Numan
There are no electric guitars. ‘Hunchback’ has arias; it’s operatic.
Dennis DeYoung
If you listen to ‘Electric,’ ‘Entourage,’ and ‘Been With A Star,’ all those records are records that I dug into the crates for to help me create that feeling of old funk. No one makes records like that anymore.
The X is an amazing car, but we kind of got carried away with the art and technology. Obviously, you want great art. You want great technology. But we did get a little distracted from our mission, which was to advance the cause of electric vehicles. And it probably delayed us a little bit with the Model 3 as well.

Dan Smith
I did buy an electric guitar while shooting ‘Split.’
Anya Taylor-Joy
The moment I say I’m going into scooters, they say, ‘You’re crazy.’ Six months later, when BMW comes out with an electric scooter, it’s fine. But when Anand does it, because he’s some small guy in India, it’s not fine.

George Benson
When gasoline and rubber are rationed, electric power and transport facilities are becoming increasingly scarce, and manpower shortages are developing, it is difficult for people to understand their increased use for other than the most vital needs of war.

Marques Brownlee
You incubate a product in an atmosphere where that product is best incubated. So, for example, we incubated our electric scooter in California. Because it’s low-volume manufacturing but high-intelligence, intensive manufacturing, we are starting in Michigan.
Anand Mahindra
I bought an electric scooter in sixth grade. Bankrupted me.
Zac Efron
I think there are more politicians in favor of electric cars than against. There are still some that are against, and I think the reasoning for that varies depending on the person, but in some cases, they just don’t believe in climate change – they think oil will last forever.
Elon Musk
I’m not talking ideas, or even presentation. It’s like in politics: You have to sell something to become an electric player – like your skin or your heart.
Keith Jarrett

Look at countries like China, they are determined to dominate all clean technology areas, putting lots of money into wind, solar, electric vehicles and battery storage. America’s political impotence, caused by their terrible partisanship, will see them left behind.
Malcolm Turnbull
Cars have a large engine in the front and you have a gearbox, which is cumbersome. Electric cars don’t have this problem. The motor is much smaller, the battery is below you. This will allow you to play with different shapes.

Joe Bonamassa
When do you suppose the electric guitar was invented? If you thought the 1950s, you’d be wrong. If you can muster a recollection of hearing electric guitar in Lionel Hampton’s big band in the 1940s and date it to that decade, you’d still be off – by more than 30 years.

For me, rockabilly is very, very exciting music. It’s electric and kind of wild, you know? It’s ‘make your hairs stand up on the back of your neck’ kind of music.
Imelda May
I just want to play like Jimi Hendrix. I love other forms of music and wish I could play classical piano, or saxophone like John Coltrane, but that will never happen. Because my nature is to play electric guitar really well and to emulate my heroes from the late 1960s.
Joe Satriani
The electric guitar and its players hold a place of privilege in the annals of rock music. It is the engine, the weapon, the ax of rock.

It's as if our electric grid didn't even have fences ar

Paul Vixie
The weather was turning cold and I remember that Dante was using nothing but natural light as his electric department was away, prepping the scene in the cave. We stayed on that rock for the whole day.

Sam Palladio
Renewable energy has economic advantages that extend beyond steady, predictable electric rates – and Maine is in a good position to capitalize on those opportunities.

I’ve got an electric little motorcycle that I go to the supermarket with every day, and it’s powered by the solar panels, so it’s really got a zero carbon footprint.
Roger McGuinn
We have seen things in the twentieth century like the ATM machine, the VCR, and even the car. The electric car was invented in 1920, and here we, 100 years later, it is only now becoming an actual thing. So it doesn’t surprise me that new ideas are met with a lot of questions.
Joe Gebbia
My mother was electric onstage, and I vividly recall the extraordinary power she had over her audiences.
Lorna Luft
It’s not just the kid who’s spent every penny from his job to upgrade his car to tell the world he cares about sports cars, it’s also the person driving around in a fuel-conscious hybrid electric car, because it’s more a message to the world than an effective means of saving fuel, to be quite honest.
Richard Hammond
Electric cars are going to be very important for urban transportation.
Carlos Ghosn
In my view, it is unreasonable for EPA to exclude considerations of costs in determining whether it is ‘appropriate’ to impose significant new regulations on electric utilities.
Brett Kavanaugh

Chris Anderson
I went to electric razors so I would not have to look at myself in the morning.
Mario Cuomo
Green vegetables are something that fascinate chefs; the ability to keep vegetables green. How do we keep them green? What makes them green? Why are they green? And then that sort of army green. Why do they go from bright vibrant electric green to army green, and how can we avoid that?
Wylie Dufresne
California is an unusual and electric kind of state – it’s wonderful. All sorts of things happen there.

I always think that, for me, being someone who comes out of electric guitar experimentation, the idea of playing acoustic guitar is, in itself, kind of a radical move.
Lee Ranaldo
In the Seventies, a lot of executions via electric chair failed because of technical problems. Seed tells the true story of someone who survived and sought revenge. They buried him alive to make it seem he was dead.
Uwe Boll
My favourite hangouts are the Mexican restaurant Crazy Homies and the Electric Cinema, both in Notting Hill.
Ashley Roberts
I think that if you don’t do the full analysis of what the origin of the electrical power is, where it comes from, how you get batteries into these cars, what the cost is in terms of CO2 and the environment, I think the analysis that we are going to save the planet with electric cars is nonsense.
Sergio Marchionne
In fact, on the drinking water side, the Green New Deal does not value – at least nowhere in the documents does it value – having reliable electric grid.
Andrew R. Wheeler
The transformation that happens when a young artist goes on the road – you put the acoustic guitar down and start to play the electric a little louder – it gets a little bit ragged.

Lu Guanqiu
You can actually go to school and college to learn how

Stanley Clarke
We should do another 10 Bad Boys movies. I could come in in one of those electric wheelchairs, like Peter Sellers in Dr Strangelove, just shouting away.
Joe Pantoliano
I’m like, ‘Would you be the person in the room that would boo when Dylan went electric? I know I wouldn’t. Or are you the person that left The Beatles after ‘She Loves You,’ or ‘Drive My Car?’ You weren’t on board for ‘Revolution 9’ or ‘Day In The Life,’ were you?’
Regina Spektor
The fuel cell is just a fundamentally inferior way of delivering electrical energy to an electric motor than batteries.

Klaus Schwab
I am an unpopular electric eel in a pool of catfish.
Edith Sitwell
It’s very intense to be in front of a live audience. It’s just an amazing experience. It’s dangerous. Everything out there is heightened. The bad stuff is extra-worse. The silences are extra-silent. The good stuff is amazing. It’s electric when you walk out there. For 90 minutes, you’re on this other planet.
Steven Wright
I like big shows, a lot of volume and a lot of energy. I love electric instruments. But I do love mixing those with bluegrass instruments and cranking those up, too, with a little bit of that rock energy.
Dierks Bentley
For under certain conditions the chemical atoms emit light waves of a specific length or oscillation frequency – their familiar characteristic spectra – and these can come in the form of electromagnetic waves only from accelerated electric quanta.
Johannes Stark
Whenever I work on an album and the time comes to do all the artwork, the only thing I think of is the LP artwork. When we worked on the ‘Electric Trim’ artwork, we spent weeks and weeks making the LP artwork great, and then the CD artwork came together in a day or two. The LP is what’s important to me.
Lee Ranaldo
A friend never defends a husband who gets his wife an electric skillet for her birthday.
Erma Bombeck
I’ve remixed lots of other people’s songs, from Adele to Electric Light Orchestra to Beyonce, so when my record label said, ‘Why don’t you give ‘Ibiza’ to someone to remix?’ I said, ‘Sure,’ because I like the idea of people reimagining art and making something new out of it.
Mike Posner
What we did with Raycon is, not only do we have electric transportation, we have headphones speakers, smart watches. High demand, high quality, but affordable.
Ray J
When I was trained as a journalist, as a race-relations reporter in Nashville covering the end of the civil-rights movement, we were strictly forbidden to use the first-person pronoun. There was kind of an electric charge around it. To come out from hiding and use the word ‘I’ carried a lot of fright for me.
Lawrence Wright
Paramount Pictures is a perfect partner for Electric Entertainment, with the most stable group of executives in Hollywood and unparalleled global promotion and distribution reach.
Dean Devlin
The problem of getting from home to the metro, BRT or bus stop makes many people take their cars to work. Why not start a fleet of electric buses that just circle through neighbourhoods connecting them to the various public transport hubs?
Abhijit Banerjee
There’s no question about it: the climate crisis is happening now and we need bold action to address it – and that includes investing in electric transportation and rebuilding our infrastructure.
Alex Padilla
In my life, I’m an expert on a few things. Losing close elections is one of them. Electric utility regulation is another. Neither is a barrel of laughs, but both have their moments.

We still haven’t seen any cars take advantage of the electric powertrain in terms of how you proportion an electric vehicle versus traditional vehicles. Yes there’s electric cars, but they haven’t really done it in a beautiful way.
Henrik Fisker
When I got into high school, clarinet was not really in fashion. Everybody had electric bands.
Anat Cohen
I’ve actually made a prediction that within 30 years a majority of new cars made in the United States will be electric. And I don’t mean hybrid, I mean fully electric.
Elon Musk
If I sit down with an electric guitar, what’s going to come out are Sabbath/Zeppelin type riffs, but if I’m sitting behind a piano late at night, I might write something like ‘Desperado.’ You’re not going to write ‘Desperado’ between a wall of Marshalls and thumping, crushing volume.
Zakk Wylde
I probably own 100 guitars and all of them are electric.
Pat Smear
I’ve started cycling everywhere on my electric bike; it’s the best decision I ever made. Best part? The bike does some of the work for you!
Sara Cox
My first band was an Argentinian folk group when I was 10. When I was 12 I had my electric guitar, and by the time I was 13, the Beatles came into the scene, and that was over. So I have a mixture of all these traditions, and I think that’s who I am, a mixture of everything.
Gustavo Santaolalla
You can tell my mood by my makeup. When I’m depressed, it’s really dark. Then I’ll do super-dumb happy makeup. Like, I’ll do one eye electric blue and one smoky brown, and you won’t even figure it out until you’re talking to me – then you’re like, ‘Whoa!’
Kat Von D
My main electric guitar belonged to Clarence White, the great guitarist for the Byrds.

Mario Cuomo
When it came to the discussion about would Harley do an electric bike, I said, ‘Absolutely – this is a no-brainer.’ Let’s define the sound of the future.
Jochen Zeitz
If you have 50 different plug types, appliances wouldn’t be available and would be very expensive. But once an electric outlet becomes standardized, many companies can design appliances, and competition ensues, creating variety and better prices for consumers.
Bill Gates
The more I see of democracy the more I dislike it. It just brings everything down to the mere vulgar level of wages and prices, electric light and water closets, and nothing else.
D. H. Lawrence
It took me 20 years to buy an electric typewriter, beca

It took me 20 years to buy an electric typewriter, because I was afraid it would be too sensitive. I like to bang the keys. I’m doing action stories, so that’s the way I like to do it.
Elmore Leonard
I felt like I plateaued at playing drums, like I wasn’t getting any better. I bought an electric pair of drums, sold my drum set, and got introduced to making beats.
Murda Beatz
I remember visiting my grandmother Adele in Ponce Inlet, Florida, when I was three years old, and she had an IBM electric typewriter. I thought that this electric typewriter was about the most fascinating toy in the world – I liked the little bell and the sounds and the feel of the keys and especially the erase key.
Gabrielle Zevin
I think art comes out of meaningful experiences, and it’s hard to make art when your meaningful experience is getting into your electric car and driving from your fancy house in the Hills to your fancy job in the Valley.
Aisha Tyler
It’s like being in a trance, like I get this electric current through my fingertips. Sometimes I shake. People say I look like Hendrix when I’m about to rip a solo because I move my shoulders like he does and do the chewing.
Tash Sultana
We want to encourage a move away from polluting vehicles, aiming to ban new diesel and petrol cars by 2030, and expand electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
Layla Moran
I’m lucky that my family is musical. Music was encouraged. So when I saw Carlos Santana play and decided to really pursue the electric guitar in earnest, it was OK. My parents knew I was going to go for it.
For the first time in 15 years, Georgia this winter has its electric power guaranteed without deficit. This is a historic achievement.

Gabrielle Zevin
What I think is cool about Fender, and what originally drew me to them, was the Fender electric guitar headstock, which I’ve never seen on another ukulele. I feel like a rock star when I’m tuning it.
Grace VanderWaal
We don’t make a distinction between an acoustic instrument as a source of sound and any sound in the air outside or on a manufactured tape. It’s all electric energy, anyway.
Florian Schneider
I know how to play the acoustic guitar, but I’m learning to play the electric guitar now. I’m sure it will be a wonderful experience.
Harshvardhan Rane
It’s absolutely clear that whatever cruel and unusual punishments may – may mean with regard to future things, such as death by injection or the electric chair, it’s clear that – that the death penalty, in and of itself, is not considered cruel and unusual punishment.
Antonin Scalia
Taxi drivers up and down the country are at the vanguard of the electric vehicle revolution.
Grant Shapps

Dawn Foster
I was an electrician, and now I’m in ‘Electric Dreams.’ It’s almost bizarre.
Liam Cunningham
Bloomberg’s $50 million is not going to revolutionize the electric power industry. But his willingness to fight is already inspiring others to see Big Coal differently.
Jeff Goodell
Strangely enough, when the Sugababes’ ‘Freak Like Me’ went to number 1, which was built around my ‘Are ‘Friends’ Electric’ song, I had another song called ‘Rip’ go to number 1 in the Kerrang TV chart, so I was pulling new people in from very different areas of musical interest. That was quite an amazing week.
Gary Numan
I contend that if it wasn’t for Jimi, the gadgets we use for electric guitars now wouldn’t have happened. He was an inventor, in a sense – as well as being great artist.
Jose Feliciano
What’s interesting is that younger characters just have a more vibrant, exciting point of view on the world. They are more emotional, they are more dramatic, and they are just electric.
Mark Waid
Now the Tombs, like the name says, are so horrible that they had to close it down. Today it doesn’t exist and people go in the electric chair and all that.
Gregory Corso
Being 16 years old and getting an electric guitar is never going to get old. There’s always going to be kids making music. There’s always going to be kids in bands.
Dan Auerbach
Golf at its measured pace permits an electric excess of mental activity.
John Updike
Everybody besides my piano player has been with me since the very first day. We were a four-piece band for a solid two years. It was me playing acoustic and rhythm electric guitar, a bass player, a drummer and a lead guitar player. For a couple of years, we sounded like the Foo Fighters.
Thomas Rhett
It is as if my life were magically run by two electric currents: joyous positive and despairing negative – whichever is running at the moment dominates my life, floods it.
Sylvia Plath
What is my loftiest ambition? I’ve always wanted to throw an egg at an electric fan.

Ehud Olmert
Yes, there were piano bands and great rock pianists, from Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard to Keith Emerson, Rick Wakeman, and Elton John. But something about the electric guitar speaks of more than music – it epitomizes and gives voice to the rebellion, power, and sexuality of rock.
Daniel Levitin
I don’t know if Wimbledon’s seen anything like it. I don’t know if they will again. But it was just – it was electric. The Aussie crowd, I’m really proud of them, the way they conducted themselves. You know they’re great losers, as well.
Patrick Rafter
I waited until the end of the ‘Behold Electric Guitar’ recording sessions to record ‘A Herd of Turtles,’ as I knew the unusual arrangement might raise some eyebrows.
Paul Gilbert
If you really love films, and you really want to get th

If you really love films, and you really want to get the full impact, there’s a huge difference between watching something on a small screen with a mediocre sound system and watching it on a giant screen in a giant theater with a huge beautiful sound system. I mean, the difference is electric.
George Lucas
The Peruvian Amazon was amazing. We cooked alligator and I got stung by an electric eel.
Jock Zonfrillo
Most car companies in the world are saying they’re going to electric vehicles. That’s an inevitability. The question is, ‘Can we do that in a way that’s going to be really good for our economy and for American workers and American consumers?’
Brian Deese
To me, a New Yorker is someone that has general disdain toward landlords, mass-transit authorities, electric companies, sports-team managers, NYU and its students, and anything new.
The first drafts of my novels have all been written in longhand, and then I type them up on my old electric. I have resisted getting a computer because I distrust the whole PC thing. I don’t think a great book has yet been written on computer.
J. G. Ballard
I play acoustic when I need to play acoustic, and I say I’m probably a better acoustic player than I am electric.
Joe Bonamassa
There are a lot of cases where I’m using, if not an acoustic guitar, an electric guitar more as a rhythm instrument. Rather than blasting away, I use it to create more of an acoustic feel.
Billy Squier
When you have an acoustic bass in the ensemble it really changes the dynamic of the record because it kind of forces everybody to play with a greater degree of sensitivity and nuance because it just has a different kind of tone and spectrum than the electric bass.
David Sanborn
I bought my first electric car in 1970. Its top speed was 15 mph and it had just a 15 mile range – it was essentially a golf cart with a windshield wiper and a horn.
Ed Begley, Jr.
We believe that electricity exists, because the electric company keeps sending us bills for it, but we cannot figure out how it travels inside wires.
Dave Barry
I use an electric wheelchair because I have no sense of balance, and muscle spasticity has arched my spine like a cat’s, while my legs are really just for show.
Zach Anner
The worst job I ever had was working in the call center of an electric company. I sat in a tiny cubicle getting yelled at every day so I could earn minimum wage.
Anna Todd
I’m probably a more intentional acoustic player than I am an electric player because of lack of influences. I just play acoustic to see what happens.

Electric cars are the future.
Albert II, Prince of Monaco
I play the piano. I bought an upright piano that is actually electric, so I can practice my scales with headphones on and not make my neighbours’ lives hell!

I think what makes the Byrds stand up all these years is the basis in folk music. Folk music, being a timeless art form, is the foundation of the Byrds. We were all from a folk background. We considered ourselves folk singers even when we strapped on electric instruments and dabbled in different things.
Roger McGuinn
I don’t listen to Nirvana plugged anymore. I think there’s a whole group of people who have semi-forgotten that Nirvana used electric guitars because of the ‘Unplugged’ album. It’s so great.
Steven Hall
Selling an electric sports car creates an opportunity to fundamentally change the way America drives.
Elon Musk

Bernie Sanders
We’ve got an electric organ, a sax, drums, guitar and bass guitar. We sound less like the Beatles than most of the groups.
Dave Clark
I do some solo, acoustic stuff, but I also like plugging in my electric guitar and playing loud with a band.
James Bay
I’ve always been at war with the guitar. All vocalists are fighting a war with the electric rhythm guitar.
Nick Cave
Because of its shortcomings – driving range, cost, and recharging time – the electric vehicle is not a viable replacement for most conventional cars.
Takeshi Uchiyamada
I know it is one of the most important instruments and inventions, the electric guitar, to me, since television or movies or anything like that.
John 5
Under Ronald Reagan, hatred of the liberal media took on a storybook quality. Reagan had honed his political skills as a spokesman for General Electric.

It took me a while to get an electric guitar and a bass

It took me a while to get an electric guitar and a bass and amps and stuff. Playing the acoustic guitar was much easier and more affordable. But I was always listening to the radio and was interested in all the rock and pop music.
Timothy B. Schmit
To me, the sax is rock n’ roll, even though electric guitars kind of pushed it aside for a while.
