Our Reply To Violence: To Make Music


Recently came upon this awesome quote from Leonard Bernstein's response to JFK's assassination:
" ... But this sorrow and rage will not inflame us to seek retribution; rather they will inflame our art. Our music will never again be quite the same. This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before. " (emphasis mine)
Remind's me of Questlove's Instagram post a month ago.

... anyone looking for a drummer?
