“We enjoy playing with each other, which I think is a pretty important part of this.
If we didn’t, we’d have given it up a long time ago.
The idea when we started was to take five people and keep ’em together no matter what and see what we could get out of it, and we’ve pretty much stuck to that plan.”
(Tom Petty – American Rock star, Guitarist and Singer (Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers) b.1950)

“Everyone should have an experience like ‘The Heartbreakers’ in their musical life; creativity, passion, honesty, integrity, and a lot of fun.”
(Steve Ferrone – English drummer)

“When musicians such as Eric Clapton, Anita Baker, Jeffrey Osborne, George Benson and Chaka Khan searched for the best drummer they could find, their searches led them to Steve Ferrone.
Steve’s tasteful musicality and powerful groove has made him one of the most popular drummers in music today. Steve first came to international prominence while playing with the Average White Band during the 1970s.
Nowadays, he uses his talents as the drummer for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.”

I dedicated my entire life to this music.”

“What is not in the open street is false, derived, that is to say, literature.”
(Henry Miller – American writer, 1891-1980)

This was shot in Old Delhi a few weeks ago, early in the morning.
There was already some heavy traffic in front of gate number three of Jama Masjid, the largest and best-known mosque in India.
This amazing and vibrant part of the city managed to keep a timeless atmosphere.
The footpath to Kinari Bazaar will make anyone fall in love with the soul of the city…

This picture belongs to a series of portraits of Jagjit Singh, the Ghazal King, shot four months ago.
That evening the legendary star gave an amazing performance as usual and I couldn’t think that he would leave so fast…
The singer with a soul-stirring and velevet voice died this morning over a fortnight from a brain haemorrhage, he was 70 year old.

The words below come from BBC News.
“Renowned Indian singer Jagjit Singh has died in Mumbai (Bombay), aged 70.
Mr Singh, who was famed for his semi-classical ghazal songs, suffered from a stroke last month and had been in a coma in hospital ever since.
Popularly known as the “Ghazal King”, Singh sang in a number of languages.
He is survived by his wife, Chitra Singh, who is also a leading ghazal singer.
They had commercial success with songs recorded together in the 1970s and 1980s.
Singh’s admirers say he revolutionised ghazal music and made it accessible to the wider public.
He also sang tracks for a number of popular movies, including Sarfarosh.
He was the first prominent ghazal singer from India in a genre dominated by Pakistani singers.
“He was the first real ghazal singer from India. Before him there were clones. The poetry in his music was beautiful,” actor Anupam Kher said in a tribute.
“His music was gentle, soothing and went to your heart.”
Ghazal singer Pankaj Udhas said that Singh had made ghazal so accessible that his audiences “could sing along with him”.
Jagjit Singh recorded more than 50 albums, many of them major commercial successes.”

“…Well I’ve no daughters, I’ve no sons
Guess I’m the only one
Living in my life
Take care my love, he said
Don’t think that God is dead
Take care my love, he said
You have been loved ”
(From “You Have Been Loved” by George Michael)
