Bootsy Collins Quotes / Quotations

A roast is like a get-together where people come down and talk about you and dog you out, the way you came up, the knucklehead things that you did, stuff like that.
Quotation of Bootsy Collins


But by us doing a lot on the road, we were able to afford things like videos on the tours, cartoons that we'd open up the shows with. We were doing that way back when and now it's the hippest thing to do. We're just coming back around, I guess trying to play catch-up.
Quotation of Bootsy Collins


But I'm always trying to plan ahead too and in doing so, and in working on this album, I've met a lot people that I hope to be involved with, on their records and in their situations.
Quotation of Bootsy Collins

Quotation of Bootsy Collins


Coming from the James Brown school, I had learned a lot of stuff before I got with George. It was from one extreme to the other.
Quotation of Bootsy Collins


During the course of the day, I write things down, things I don't do anything with. Then, when I get ready to start recording, I just look through my books and I see if I can find something that stands out. That's how I come up with the off-the-wall-kinda-strange-indirect-stuff.

Quotation of Bootsy Collins


I like being out front, doing what I do, but then I also like playing in a band too. I'd like to do stuff like I did with Deee-lite. I went out and played with them and they were the stars, that was cool.
Quotation of Bootsy Collins


I recorded most of my stuff here and Mousse T. and Boogieman took the tapes from here to their studio in Germany. And then they just did what they do, mixed and hooked it all up.
Quotation of Bootsy Collins


I try to bring it across on my record, in my dress, in what I do and what I say because to me humor is important. You should have a dose of that and I guess giving it is what I'm here for.
Quotation of Bootsy Collins


I wanna keep creating those situations for myself so I don't have to be out front all the time. Then when I do have to be out front, I can do it to the max.
Quotation of Bootsy Collins


I wanted to get my recording and become a musician again, work; with other people, do that kind of thing because I kind of got away from that for a while once we started happening, you know, selling records, sold out concerts.
Quotation of Bootsy Collins


I'd like to have younger people around me and that I'll be involved with them a lot more now, as opposed to me being the main focal point.
Quotation of Bootsy Collins


I've thought maybe of getting younger artists out doing stuff, like I used to do a lot of. I don't wanna do it day in and day out like I used to, but I still wanna do it.
Quotation of Bootsy Collins


It's a whole other ball game and I am glad that I fit into that space where, whatever it is that you want to do and you are doing as long as you are happy with it, then you know What the Heck!
Quotation of Bootsy Collins


Nowadays, it's like two different arenas, recording and touring. When I started way back in the day, doing both was nothing, you didn't have to think about it, the road and recording.
Quotation of Bootsy Collins


Once you lose that musician part -not just the playing, I'm talking about musician attitude- then you're lost, man. Especially if you started out that way. It feels so good to be back, starting from the ground up.
Quotation of Bootsy Collins


Since Warner Brothers, back in the day, I hadn't never really had nobody that I think that was there, that I kinda felt was working like my right arm.
Quotation of Bootsy Collins


That's pretty much what we try to do. Stay with that one instead of following the Jones, I just like to come up with my own stuff.
Quotation of Bootsy Collins


To me, you go through things like that and you learn from it. You add it on to your life, to try to make your life better. Instead of dogging people, learn something from it. And keep stepping.
Quotation of Bootsy Collins


Usually when I'm out doing stuff, I'm just out in the wild, doing the wild thing. I don't really get a chance to just chill out until I come here, in my creative space.
Quotation of Bootsy Collins


We are all human and I want to relate that message to all people.
Quotation of Bootsy Collins


We partied every day and I'm trying to figure out how I got anything finished. Today you even have to set a time for partying!
Quotation of Bootsy Collins


We were brash young fellows'. I was always hanging with the older crowd anyway. The musicians were the Hip Cats, and I was hanging with them anyway. I Just started out real early.

Quotation of Bootsy Collins


When I was coming up, we weren't trying to get a hit or get paid, we were just trying to do our thing. The only thing we were really trying to do was to be recognized for our originality.
Quotation of Bootsy Collins


When we got with George, he didn't care what was happening. He liked how crazy we were looking and dressing. I kinda liked being with George more so at the time, because George let us do what we wanted to do. But I needed both lessons.
Quotation of Bootsy Collins


When you're used to playing with people, when you're in a band, then you're used to playing with each other. People nowadays aren't used to playing with each other because they don't have to.
Quotation of Bootsy Collins


Yeah, because what it all boils down to is at the end of the day, we are all riding on the same boat and we have to learn how to deal with each other. I think that the music and what we do in our actions is what can kind of bring us together, hopefully.
Quotation of Bootsy Collins


You have to get up and plant the seed and see if it grows, but you can't just wait around, you have to water it and take care of it.
