George Duke Quotes

  • I really think it’s possible (and still do) to make good music and be commercial at the same time. I believe it is the artist’s responsibility to take the music to the people. Art for art’s sake is nice; but if art doesn’t communicate, then its worth is negated. It has not fulfilled its destiny.
  • [on being told he could study music] I don’t remember it too well, but my mother told me I went crazy. I ran around saying, ‘Get me a piano! Get me a piano!’
