Onstage quotes by George Jones

It was literally like someone had pulled a curtain over it. - Author: Adele
Onstage quotes by Adele
#16. I haven't had that many people onstage for a while, and I'm looking forward to that. They're all such creative musicians in their own right. They're all complete individuals. They're not just a pick-up band. They all have their own thing going on. - Author: Andrew Bird
Onstage quotes by Andrew Bird

Onstage quotes by Kerry King
#18. People only speak to get something. If I say, Let me tell you a few things about myself, already your defenses go up; you go, Look, I wonder what he wants from me, because no one ever speaks except to obtain an objective. That's the only reason anyone ever opens their mouth, onstage or offstage.

Onstage quotes by David Mamet

Onstage quotes by Kevin Hart
#27. I'm just not going to tour. One point I want to get across to everybody is that I'm still going to make records and I may still do some events. It's not the last time I'm onstage. It's been a part of my life for too long to quit everything. I have done it since the '80s, and I think it's time now to maybe see if I can live without that part. - Author: George Strait
Onstage quotes by George Strait

#31. He hit the circuit in 1917 as 'Frank Fay, Nut Monologist,' and resistance was immediate. Variety critically stated, 'Fay needs a good straight man, as before, to feed his eccentric comedy.' A comedian standing alone onstage? Unheard of. Doesn't this guy know anything about showbiz? To stand still and tell jokes was a foreign move. To perform without some kind of gimmick was considered amateurish. - Author: Kliph Nesteroff
Onstage quotes by Kliph Nesteroff
#32. The most memorable night of The Judy Garland Show for me was the night my mother pulled me out of the audience and sang to me onstage. - Author: Lorna Luft
Onstage quotes by Lorna Luft
#33. He is tangled in Isabelle's arms, he is curtained by Isabelle's hair, he is touching Isabelle's body, he is lost in Isabelle, in her smell and her taste and the silk of her skin.
He is onstage, the music pounding, the floor shaking, the audience cheering, his heart beating beating beating in time with the drumbeat.
He is laughing with Clary, dancing with Clary, eating with Clary, running through the streets of Brooklyn with Clary, they are children together, they are one half of a whole, they hold hands and squeeze tight and pledge never to let go.
He is going cold, stiff, the life draining out of him, he is below, in the dark, clawing his way to the light, fingernails scraping dirt, mouth filled with dirt, eyes clogged with dirt, he is straining, reaching, dragging himself up toward the sky, and when he reaches it, he opens his mouth wide but does not breathe, for he no longer needs to breathe, only to feed. And he is so very hungry.
He is sinking his teeth into the neck of an angel's child, he is drinking the light.
He is bearing a Mark, and it burns.
He is raising his face to meet the gaze of an angel, he is flayed by the fury of angel fire, and yet still, impudent and bloodless, he lives.
He is in a cage.
He is in hell.
He is bent over the broken body of a beautiful girl, he is praying to whatever god that will listen, please let her live, anything to let her live.
He is giving away that which is most precious to him, - Author: Cassandra Clare
Onstage quotes by Cassandra Clare

Onstage quotes by Idina Menzel
#39. Jack stepped onstage dressed in jeans, sneakers, and a T-shirt.
"I'm the handsome Butterboy," Jack announced. "I'm the queen's soul mate. I just don't know it yet because I'm emotionally immature. Sorry, Conner."
Conner was so embarrassed, he sank into his seat and covered his face with his backpack. Trollbella was sporting a wide grin - this was her favorite part of the show. Red struck a theatrical pose with her hands over her heart.
"Be still my heart, for I am in love!" Red announced.
"Now, Peter!" Trollbella whispered.
Peter soared out from backstage and flew in circles over the audience. The children laughed and clapped - they reached up and tried to touch him. Conner was irritated by how much they were enjoying the show.
"Hello, Butterboy!" Red said to Jack. "Would you like to be my king and rule the trolls and goblins with me? Oh, how happy we will be together!"
"Oh boy, that sounds wonderful!" Jack said. "How lucky I am to be loved by such a beautiful and brilliant troll queen. I will never find someone like her ever again - nope, not once, no how, no way, not going to happen! I want to be with Trollbella for all eternity!"
"I never said that!" Conner shouted from his seat. "She's making this up! - Author: Chris Colfer
Onstage quotes by Chris Colfer

Onstage quotes by Cate Blanchett
#41. Although I'm a lead guitarist, I'd say that a good 95 percent of my time onstage is spent playing rhythm. - Author: Kirk Hammett
Onstage quotes by Kirk Hammett
#42. I can't believe how much time has passed. The first time I did stand-up I was 17, and I was really a stand-up once I was 19 in New York, and now I'm 41, and I still feel like I haven't found myself onstage. - Author: Sarah Silverman
Onstage quotes by Sarah Silverman
#43. The music is key. It has the power to transport you. I go from being a slightly insecure, shy kind of a person offstage, to this super-confident, motivated, entity onstage. - Author: Neil Diamond
Onstage quotes by Neil Diamond
#44. It's my turn next, and I realize then that I never turned in the name of my escort--because I hadn't planned on being here. I glance around wildly for Ryder, but he's nowhere to be seen, swallowed up by the sea of people in cocktail dresses and suits.
Crap. I thought he realized that escorting me on court was part of the deal, once I'd agreed to go. I guess he'd figured it'd be easier on me, what with the whole Patrick thing, if I was alone onstage. But I don't want to be alone. I want Ryder with me. By my side, supporting me.
I finally spot him in the crowd--it's not too hard, since he's a head taller than pretty much everyone else--and our eyes meet. My stomach drops to my feet--you know, that feeling you get on a roller coaster right after you crest that first hill and start plummeting toward the ground.
Oh my God, this can't be happening. I've fallen in love with Ryder Marsden, the boy I'm supposed to hate. And it has nothing to do with his confession, his declaration that he loves me. Sure, it might have forced me to examine my feelings faster than I would have on my own, but it was there all along, taking root, growing, blossoming.
Heck, it's a full-blown garden at this point.
"Our senior maid is Miss Jemma Cafferty!" comes the principal's voice. "Jemma is a varsity cheerleader, a member of the Wheelettes social sorority, the French Honor Club, the National Honor Society, and the Peer Mentors. She's escorted tonight by…ahem, sorry. - Author: Kristi Cook
Onstage quotes by Kristi Cook
#45. I remember acting in a school play about the melting pot when I was very little. There was a great big pot onstage. On the other side of the pot was a little girl who had dark hair, and she and I were representing the Italians. And I thought: Is that what an Italian looked like? - Author: Al Pacino
Onstage quotes by Al Pacino
#46. Okay, so how, exactly, did I get into this mess - up onstage at a comedy club, baking like a bag of French fries under a hot spotlight that shows off my sweat stains( including one that sort of looks like Jabba the Hutt), with about a thousand beady eyeballs drilling into me? - Author: James Patterson
Onstage quotes by James Patterson
#47. It's always been impressive to me when someone can really do what they want onstage. The audience has confidence in the performer and the performer has confidence in the crowd. - Author: Henry Rollins
Onstage quotes by Henry Rollins
#48. I'm not good enough to be playin' much acoustic guitar onstage. Man, you gotta get so right; I mean, the tones, the feel, the sound. Plus, acoustic blues guitar is just that much harder on the fingers. - Author: Johnny Winter
Onstage quotes by Johnny Winter
#49. I find with television, you have to play personality, whereas onstage, everyone talks about 'the character,' and what you do. It's a very different thing, because stage is much bigger, but on television, for things to come across to the public, I think you have to play a bit of your personality. - Author: John Barrowman
Onstage quotes by John Barrowman
#50. I'd like to sit down with Hillary Clinton onstage and ask her about Glass Steagall and all the big banks and her own campaign contributions. - Author: Eileen Myles
Onstage quotes by Eileen Myles
#51. Approval isn't necessary. It's nice when you get it, but it's not going to stop us from being who we are. I mean, if I'd have listened to approval, I'd never have made it one day onstage. But to be criticized, if there's validity, as upset as you are, you can learn from it. - Author: Jared Leto
Onstage quotes by Jared Leto
#52. You don't need to exorcise your personal demons onstage. - Author: Jimmy Kimmel
Onstage quotes by Jimmy Kimmel

Onstage quotes by Kesha
#56. I can't presume to speak for the others, but I never felt anything negative from anyone when I was onstage with Television. When I played rhythm behind Lloyd, the only thing that concerned me was to push him as hard as I could so that he'd go beyond what he was capable of and come up with something new, and vice versa. That's the only thing that mattered. - Author: Tom Verlaine
Onstage quotes by Tom Verlaine
#57. How do you top 'Mormon?' I get sent scripts all the time and I don't know what I would do next. What do you do after that? So I think if you do see me onstage, you'll see me in something dramatic, maybe, or you'll see me try my hand at something else. Perhaps fail, terribly, but try. - Author: Josh Gad
Onstage quotes by Josh Gad
#58. Onstage, I find absolutely nothing but exhilaration in not talking. - Author: Teller
Onstage quotes by Teller
#59. I'm glad I've given up drugs and alcohol. It would be awful to be like Keith Richards. He's pathetic. It's like a monkey with arthritis, trying to go onstage and look young. - Author: Elton John
Onstage quotes by Elton John
#60. Mick Jagger is one of the greatest athletes who ever lived, just for how much he puts into it onstage. - Author: Axl Rose
Onstage quotes by Axl Rose
#61. We're at the opening of the Globe." She thought back to Daniel's words under the peach trees at Sword & Cross. "Daniel told me we were here."
"Sure,you were here," Bill said. "About fourteen years ago.Perched on your older brother's shoulder. You came with your family to see Julius Caesar."
Bill hovered in the air a foot in front of her. It was unappetizing, but the high collar around her neck actually seemed to hold its shape. She almost resembled the sumptuously dressed women in the higher boxes.
"And Daniel?" she asked.
"Daniel was a player-"
"That's whay they called the actors." Bill rolled his eyes. "He was just starting out then. To everyone else in the audience, his debut was utterly forgettable. But to little three-year-old Lucinda"-Bill shrugged-"it put the fire in you. You've been quote-unquote dying to get onstage ever since.Tonight's your night."
"I'm an actor? - Author: Lauren Kate
Onstage quotes by Lauren Kate
#62. Entitlement is a precarious place from which to create or perform - it projects the idea that you have nothing to prove, nothing to claim, nothing to show but self-satisfaction, a smug boredom. It breeds ambivalence. It's as if instead of having to prove they are something, these musicians prove they aren't anything. It's an inverted dynamic, one that sets performers up to fail, but also gives them a false sense of having already arrived. I don't understand how someone would not push, challenge, or at least be present, how anyone could get onstage and not give everything. - Author: Carrie Brownstein
Onstage quotes by Carrie Brownstein
#63. Maybe people have no idea how much work is behind a picture. It can seem very effortless, but there is a lot of work. It's exactly like doing ballet. It's hours and hours, but when you go onstage, it's just the pleasure of dancing. - Author: Carine Roitfeld
Onstage quotes by Carine Roitfeld
#64. Now what's important is that they have an attitude. Everybody has a look, but not everybody has cultivated what their stage persona is. And so when you're dealing with actors, it just makes it more difficult, because you have to help them come up with one. You know, Johnny Depp has no Johnny Depp character when he's onstage. You haven't seen An Evening With Johnny Depp at Carnegie Hall. - Author: Bruce Vilanch
Onstage quotes by Bruce Vilanch
#65. It probably does make it more difficult to enjoy a good laugh at someone who's onstage, seemingly yelling at you. But I'm not yelling at the audience, I'm yelling at the world. It genuinely sucks if people are taking it that way. But I'm not talking to individuals. - Author: David Cross
Onstage quotes by David Cross
#66. My thing is you just have to try to feel young and stay young. Obviously you get a little older, but I still want my music to be young. I don't want to sound like an old dad onstage, so you just have to write music that sounds young. - Author: Luke Bryan
Onstage quotes by Luke Bryan
#67. I'll never die. I'll just explode, right there before your eyes, onstage. - Author: Dick Dale
Onstage quotes by Dick Dale
#68. It's hard for a person to try to keep his stuff together being nominated for something and then performing onstage. - Author: Juicy J
Onstage quotes by Juicy J
#69. Tunstell, this is your Alpha speaking. Do as I tell you. You must regurgitate now.
Regurgitation is an involuntary action. You cannot simply order me to do it," replied Tunstell in a small voice.
"I most certainly can. Besides which, you are an actor."
Tunstell grimaced. "I've never had cause to vomit onstage. - Author: Gail Carriger
Onstage quotes by Gail Carriger
#70. The body cannot lie. You cannot be somebody else onstage, no matter how good of an actor or dancer or singer you are. When you open your arms, move your finger, the audience knows who you are, you know. - Author: Mikhail Baryshnikov
Onstage quotes by Mikhail Baryshnikov
#71. In the beginning, the media was calling me a bad boy all the time because of the way I act and feel onstage. None of them have ever taken the time to get to know me when I climb offstage. - Author: Bobby Brown
Onstage quotes by Bobby Brown

Onstage quotes by Joel Madden
#76. I'm really clumsy, so I trip and fall a lot. And every time I perform in New York my pants split onstage. That's happened four or five times. Every time, I pull on my mom's jeans as fast as I can, so there we are, standing backstage without our pants on. It's like a curse. - Author: Jessica Simpson
Onstage quotes by Jessica Simpson
#77. When Rin Tin Tin first became famous, most dogs in the world would not sit down when asked. Dogs performed duties: they herded sheep, they barked at strangers, they did what dogs do naturally, and people learned to interpret and make use of how they behaved. The idea of a dog's being obedient for the sake of good manners was unheard of. When dogs lived outside, as they usually did on farms and ranches, the etiquette required of them was minimal. But by the 1930s, Americans were leaving farms and moving into urban and suburban areas, bringing dogs along as pets and sharing living quarters with them. At the time, the principles of behavior were still mostly a mystery -- Ivan Pavlov's explication of conditional reflexes, on which much training is based, wasn't even published in an English translation until 1927. If dogs needed to be taught how to behave, people had to be trained to train their dogs. The idea that an ordinary person -- not a dog professional -- could train his own pet was a new idea, which is partly why Rin Tin Tin's performances in movies and onstage were looked upon as extraordinary. - Author: Susan Orlean
Onstage quotes by Susan Orlean
#78. The most important thing you can do as a performer is to be yourself, or be an onstage version of yourself. If you're not being true to yourself, and somebody likes that other version of you, you're kind of stuck. - Author: Lyle Lovett
Onstage quotes by Lyle Lovett
#79. I keep saying I am an auto-didact, but I have a lot of outside influences. One I could cite is juggler Francis Brunn, who was the first man to throw ten rings in the air; he was really an amazing juggler who showed onstage the quest for perfection. - Author: Philippe Petit
Onstage quotes by Philippe Petit
#80. I would get ill before going onstage - something about getting in front of people, and if they don't laugh, I'm a bomb. I got over it when somebody laughed. - Author: Tim Conway
Onstage quotes by Tim Conway
#81. I've gotten to where my hair is like my onstage prop; I need to hide behind it and throw it around - it's my slo-mo effect. - Author: Amy Lee
Onstage quotes by Amy Lee
#82. I know now that everybody in the arts is forever a beginner. Experience counts for a great deal and very little. Every night onstage I feel I am starting from scratch, still not quite sure what I am doing and where I am going, thrown by the simplest thing that goes wrong. - Author: Joan Rivers
Onstage quotes by Joan Rivers
#83. Onstage it was always comfortable for me because that's where I felt at home. Offstage it was a different situation. I was still shy offstage and unfortunately, my shyness and my inability to communicate and really have great conversations or be part of the gang - in inverted commas - led me to the drug addiction, which, you know, blighted my life for 16 years because I thought by doing that it would make me join in. - Author: Elton John
Onstage quotes by Elton John

Onstage quotes by Ringo Starr
#88. His father had smashed his very first guitar for him, in an early attempt to rid Jude of his musical ambitions. Jude hadn't been able to repeat the act himself, not even onstage, for show, when he could afford all the guitars he wanted. He was, however, perfectly willing to use one as a weapon to defend himself. In a sense he supposed he had always used them as weapons. - Author: Joe Hill
Onstage quotes by Joe Hill
#89. I consider myself something of a self-taught anthropologist. I try not to talk about something unless it's something I love. But if it's something that really annoys me, I fixate on it, learn something about it and then, when I'm onstage, it comes out. - Author: Reggie Watts
Onstage quotes by Reggie Watts
#90. I always say, when you're onstage you can't please everybody. I'm sure there are people who may not take to what I do, but that's okay. Thank God the majority are in my corner. - Author: Don Rickles
Onstage quotes by Don Rickles
#91. Blake Lively is my style icon, and she always has rocking clothes and shoes. She keeps it really simple with hair and makeup, and I try to do the same thing. Onstage, I do a little smokier, a little more contouring, but I still always want to be an approachable and real artist, so I never try to go overboard. - Author: Kelsea Ballerini
Onstage quotes by Kelsea Ballerini
#92. I love being onstage. I love the relationship with the audience. I love the letting go, the sense of discovery, the improvising. - Author: Stephen Colbert
Onstage quotes by Stephen Colbert
#93. Being onstage and communicating with an audience was part of my life since I was very little, but I was never pushed into singing. My parents were so uninterested in me making music. - Author: Robyn
Onstage quotes by Robyn
#94. I missed New York. Every break I had from the series, I'd fly back to the East Coast just to get back onstage. - Author: Bebe Neuwirth
Onstage quotes by Bebe Neuwirth
#95. When I go out there onstage, I want to be more than just a blocky guy who waddles onto the posing platform. I want the girls to feel something. - Author: Tom Platz
Onstage quotes by Tom Platz
#96. We're blessed to be at a level in my career where I can afford to take out a bus of my own and bring my whole family with me, so that's great, too. The boys are out with us all the time, and it's just great to be able to turn around onstage and see my wife back there behind me. - Author: Josh Turner
Onstage quotes by Josh Turner
#97. There is a bit of acting involved when you get in front of a camera for a video. Even when you perform onstage, you're putting on a show. - Author: Aaliyah
Onstage quotes by Aaliyah
#98. You want to have butterflies in your stomach, because if you don't, if you walk out onstage complacent, that's not a good thing. - Author: Joan Jett
Onstage quotes by Joan Jett
#99. It's a surreal experience. During the first show, I was like, "Wow, I'm onstage with Ms. Tyson!" Everybody has been amazing, and the energy is really beautiful. I'm replacing my friend Condola, so everyone making sure that I'm OK has turned what could've been a very scary, nerve-racking and lonely experience into a supportive environment. - Author: Adepero Oduye
Onstage quotes by Adepero Oduye
#100. I'll give you my worst nightmare. I'm dreaming that I'm onstage, the curtain goes up, and I have no idea what my lines are or what's going on. I think I should know, I kind of know, I remember rehearsing ... and the audience is there waiting. - Author: Jackie Earle Haley
Onstage quotes by Jackie Earle Haley

Onstage quotes by Margaret Cho
#102. I am very active, ... I like to ride horses. I golf. I perform onstage. I am a madman onstage. - Author: Clay Walker
Onstage quotes by Clay Walker
#103. I can totally identify with the younger kids. I'll never do what Jon Spencer did to me when I was 16, though. I made a tape with my friends and I put it onstage right near his mic stand by the pedal board and he pulled it out with his foot, kicked it to the center of the stage, looked me in the eye and stomped it to pieces. - Author: Patrick Carney
Onstage quotes by Patrick Carney
#104. You're standing onstage in a sold-out arena with people singing your music, and you feel like the loneliest person in the world. Because here's a party that, essentially, it's for you. And you still somehow feel like you don't belong there. Those people all have their lives and go back home. - Author: Trent Reznor
Onstage quotes by Trent Reznor
#105. An actor stands in front of a camera onstage, and he controls time and space for the audience. He tells them how long this will take, where to look, when to look, what to think about it. And good performers should be able to do their part with the sound off. - Author: John Michael Higgins
Onstage quotes by John Michael Higgins

Onstage quotes by Pauly Shore
#108. With comics it's very close, like, "I don't want to say anything onstage that I wouldn't say offstage." Or vice versa. I say "faggot" in my special and in the joke I am the faggot, if that makes sense. - Author: Neal Brennan
Onstage quotes by Neal Brennan
#109. Since I was three I've been playing the piano. I've been onstage. My mother is an Evangelist and I used to play the piano at her revival meetings. - Author: Nina Simone

Onstage quotes by Stephanie Mills
#113. Lesbian humor isn't trying to sell anything, it doesn't have to sell out. Coming out as a lesbian onstage is still a very political act; if it weren't, more women would do it. - Author: Kate Clinton
Onstage quotes by Kate Clinton
#114. We were a really crazy band. This was in '73. I had my hair real short with a white stripe down the middle of my head. The guitarists had pink hair. We weren't playing CBGB's either, we were playing Statesborough, Georgia, for cowboys on penny beer night. We used to keep crowbars onstage when fights would break out. Those were really wild times. - Author: Rex Smith
Onstage quotes by Rex Smith
#115. When you're holding people's attention, I feel you must give them high-quality ingredients. They deserve nothing but your best. And if they need information, get it, cross-check it, and try to be right. Do not waste their time; do not enjoy the ego trip of being onstage. - Author: Henry Rollins
Onstage quotes by Henry Rollins
#116. When you look into the eyes of your people out there that came to see you, that's when it's like, 'Yep, this is what it's all about.' This is why we don't sleep, and this is why we write songs and try to be the best. This moment right here onstage. - Author: Luke Bryan

#119. Michael Buble is seriously my favorite entertainer. Have you ever seen the guy in concert? He's hilarious. Women love him. Guys want to meet him. He has everything that I wish I could do onstage. And I'm guessin' he's a good-lookin' guy - although he's not one of 'People' magazine's sexiest men. - Author: Blake Shelton
Onstage quotes by Blake Shelton
#120. I'd go onstage doing this thing, trying to fill this arena that I can't fill because I don't understand what this is. It's like you're given a job that's beyond you. And it's taken me years to realize what works in those big situations. - Author: Thom Yorke
Onstage quotes by Thom Yorke
#121. I love the feeling of letting fly, of pushing as far as I could go with my voice. The only way you can really graduate how you do it is by doing it regularly to people who don't have to be super impressed. You can do it in the studio all day long but you don't get the flashback that you get onstage. - Author: Robert Plant
Onstage quotes by Robert Plant
#122. I've done sexual stuff before - onstage, which is even more emotionally difficult. With a TV crew around, you are stopping and starting; it becomes really technical. It's not erotic at all. - Author: Randy Harrison

Onstage quotes by Alan Vega
#125. I'm actually relaxed onstage. Totally relaxed. It's nice. I feel relaxed in the studio too. I know whether something feels right. If it doesn't, I know how to fix it. Everything has to be in place and if it is you feel good, you feel fulfilled. - Author: Michael Jackson
Onstage quotes by Michael Jackson
#126. I was in 'Seussical,' and I was in a cage onstage in a purple yarn suit singing backup, and I was like: 'I've had it. I can't do this anymore.' I will say for the record that I did love the show, but I was like: 'I want to do something else. I need a little more.' - Author: Casey Nicholaw
Onstage quotes by Casey Nicholaw
#127. One of the things about crowd work that's so exciting is when you discover a character in the audience who's interesting or funny, who you can vibe off of. If someone's got a weird job that you can make reference to throughout, or you can bring that person onstage - humiliate them, or celebrate them! You can put people in conversation with one another. The best is when something that they're doing can reflect back on something that you're doing. - Author: John Hodgman
Onstage quotes by John Hodgman
#128. For me, being onstage for an hour and a half, my confidence was really huge for me. Doing eight shows a week for a run, I was like: "I'm actually doing this." And now I feel more confident going into something. - Author: Agyness Deyn
Onstage quotes by Agyness Deyn
#129. I've seen people that get onstage and sing while they have tears running down their face - I can't do that. When I cry, it starts like in my throat, so when I have something that's really emotional, sometimes if I access that too much, I can't finish the song. - Author: Carrie Underwood
Onstage quotes by Carrie Underwood
#130. I grew up in a family of actors. I grew up onstage. The choice for me wasn't, 'Do I want to be an actor or not?' I always felt like that's just ingrained in you, the need to perform. The choice was, 'Do you want to do this professionally or not?' - Author: James Badge Dale
Onstage quotes by James Badge Dale
#131. I know when I'm onstage, I don't think about how it looks, I just concentrate on really feeling what I hear. But I totally know I look like Gollum when I perform, so it's cool. - Author: Lorde

Onstage quotes by Lady Gaga
#133. I was at the radio station all the time and on the air all the time. I met John Travolta and a lot of the other big '70s icons. Shaun Cassidy sang 'Da Do Ron Ron' to me onstage. I thought I was a rock star; I had an all-access-pass childhood. - Author: Amy Landecker
Onstage quotes by Amy Landecker
#134. Jet and Clay are just two different sides of my personality. No, I don't have a split personality, but the sides are sometimes distinctive. Clay? That's me, the real me, who I am at the core. Jet is Clay on coke. He's got brass balls and doesn't take shit from anyone. He's the only guy you'll ever see onstage - Author: Jade C. Jamison
Onstage quotes by Jade C. Jamison
#135. I want to be able to walk a red carpet and look great but also be able to shred onstage and move.

Whatever I wear, I like it to feel very strong and very unique. - Author: Debby Ryan
Onstage quotes by Debby Ryan
#136. It's thrilling to be onstage and to not know, literally, what the next moment is going to bring. To just submit to the not-knowing-ness of it. - Author: Norbert Leo Butz
Onstage quotes by Norbert Leo Butz
#137. Onstage, nothing is as important as truth, nothing. As soon as you lie, they know it. - Author: Elaine Stritch
Onstage quotes by Elaine Stritch
#138. It's not a natural translation, transition, to take something from stage to screen. Onstage your action is communicated through the spoken word primarily, and on screen it's communicated through pictures. So it's always been kind of unnatural to take something that lives on the stage and turn it into moving pictures. - Author: Tracy Letts
Onstage quotes by Tracy Letts
#139. Once I get out onstage, it's the same sort of basic production that it is anywhere else. But I might be a little bit aware that there might be people I know out there, who wondered where I was. - Author: Phoebe Snow

Onstage quotes by Annie Lennox
#143. My background is a small town with no movie theater. So ... I always pictured myself onstage. I went to acting school and learned all the skills. I left early because I did my first movie and discovered that I really loved the minimalistic work with the camera. - Author: Franka Potente
Onstage quotes by Franka Potente
#144. You never knew what was going to happen in concert. It was a really exciting prospect to go onstage, and you can hear that in the live recordings ... wherever we were and whatever year it was, we always went onstage determined to do our best ... - Author: Jimmy Page
Onstage quotes by Jimmy Page
#145. I continue to write songs that are topically related to social, political and economic issues of our time, but I also recognize that onstage, I have a lot of fun and audiences have a lot of fun, so I'm trying to package the messages in music and sounds that are fun to perform and fun to listen to. - Author: Aloe Blacc
Onstage quotes by Aloe Blacc

Onstage quotes by Karen O
#148. By the end of the seventies, some nights I was so out of it our road manager, Joe Baptista, would have to carry me onstage. The promoter would be sitting there in the dressing room with a look of horror on his face. I'm almost comatose, he's hyper-ventilating. He thinks he's presenting the legendary cash cow Aerosmith, and now he's going to lose his shirt because the lead singer's down for the count. Is he dead or alive? What am I going to do? "You'd better get him on that stage. I don't know how he's going to do this how, but we've got too many kids out there."

Not to worry. The minute my feet hit the stage, I'm off and running. I don't know how it happens, but hey, you get up there in front of twenty thousand people and it's a high in itself, it's a charged space.

Still, the train kept a rollin' and we kept getting high until one night in late '78, I don't know where we were, maybe in Springfield, Illinois, I blacked out in the middle of "Reefer Headed Woman."

I got a reefer headed woman
She fell right down from the sky
Well, I gots to drink me two fifths of whiskey
Just to get half as high
When the -

And then I hit the stage like a fish out of water. - Author: Steven Tyler
Onstage quotes by Steven Tyler

Onstage quotes by Michael Richards
#151. Comedians get jokes offered to them, rock stars get women and underwear thrown onstage, and I get guys that want to take me fishing. - Author: Les Claypool
Onstage quotes by Les Claypool
#152. Once again the Naderites were onstage attacking the Educational Testing Service - the organization which develops and administers the scholastic aptitude tests ... the reason for the wax is that the E.T.S. tests persist in showing some people to be smarter than others. And if some people are smarter than others, there might actually be some justification for an economic system in which some people have more money and authority than others. - Author: Daniel Seligman
Onstage quotes by Daniel Seligman
#153. I laugh all the time - at things, people, stuff, whatever. But, I don't laugh onstage because then it's serious business. - Author: Steven Wright
Onstage quotes by Steven Wright
#154. When actors go onstage, you know immediately if they can do their job. You can be a lawyer or an accountant for years and not find out. - Author: Patsy Rodenburg
Onstage quotes by Patsy Rodenburg
#155. What I wanted to be and who I am is a singer and a songwriter. I wanted to be onstage, and I wanted the world to hear my music. The product of that is fame and the disgusting celebrity that goes along with it. But celebrity does not equal creativity. - Author: Katy Perry
Onstage quotes by Katy Perry

#159. Then a man onstage quoted Sam Houston, saying, "Texas can make it without the United States, BUT THE UNITED STATES CANNOT MAKE IT WITHOUT TEXAS!" and everyone in the entire fucking audience yelled it along with him, and I thought, "Wow.

Onstage quotes by Charlotte Gainsbourg
#161. I still do one song by myself onstage. it gives people the extremely personal thing where it's just me on guitar. But, I think the songs are better as a band. I think with all of the extra little hooks and backing vocals, it just adds to what my initial idea was. - Author: Butterfly Boucher
Onstage quotes by Butterfly Boucher
#162. Baseball players practice, runners practice, so how can you practice being funny? You get up onstage. You train as an improviser, playing make-believe, using the vernacular of improvisation, saying 'yes and' to other people's ideas, making statements. - Author: Ali Farahnakian
Onstage quotes by Ali Farahnakian
#163. When I got on set, and these huge, big lights come on, it brings on a smell - it's almost like the smell of a light burning a little bit - and I said, 'This reminds me of my childhood,' because I grew up onstage. - Author: Tia Mowry
Onstage quotes by Tia Mowry

Onstage quotes by Zach Galifianakis
#165. I feel like I have a job to do, like I constantly have to reinvent myself. The more I up the ante for myself, the better it is in the long run. I try to interact with my fans as much as possible. It's good that the person I'm being onstage isn't really an act. It's really me. - Author: Kevin Hart
Onstage quotes by Kevin Hart
#166. The Moodies is a responsibility to deliver the goods every night onstage and to do it sincerely; otherwise, it doesn't work. You've got the three guys left in the Moodies that really want to do it onstage, so I think we're truer to the old records now than we ever were. - Author: Justin Hayward
Onstage quotes by Justin Hayward
#167. On Rossini's 'The Barber of Seville' - "Much has been written about the fiasco of the opera's first night on 20 February 1816, most of it true: the mockery of Rossini's Spanish-style hazel jacket, the rowdy animosity of the Paisiello lobby, the jeering and the catcalls, as one mishap succeeded another. Basilio sang his 'Calumny' aria with a bloodied nose after tripping over a trap door; then during the act 1 finale, a cat wandered onstage, declined to leave, and was forcibly flung into the wings. According to the Rosina, Gertrude Righetti Giorgi, Rossini left the theatre 'as though he had been an indifferent onlooker'... The second performance was a triumph, though Rossini was not there to witness it. He spent the evening pacing his room, imagining the opera's progress scene by scene. He retired early, only to be roused by a glow of torches and uproar in the street. Fearing that a mob was about to set fire to the building, he took refuge in a stable block. Garcia tried to summon him to acknowledge the adulation. 'F***' their bravos!' was Rossini's blunt rejoinder. 'I'm not coming out'. - Author: Richard Osborne
Onstage quotes by Richard Osborne
#168. I am quite short, but that never comes across when I'm onstage in front of people. When I get offstage and greet an audience afterwards, their first reaction is to comment on my height because it seems like a very drastic difference. - Author: Kaki King
Onstage quotes by Kaki King
#169. I'm not drunk onstage, although I've done that a couple of times when I was younger. It's partly just the way I talk - I talk like somebody in a rocking chair. I'm your 150-year-old grandmother. - Author: Dylan Moran
Onstage quotes by Dylan Moran
#170. As Daffy once said, the best place to hide a glum countenance is onstage at the opera. - Author: Alan Bradley
Onstage quotes by Alan Bradley
#171. Classic burlesque in the style of Gypsy which many modern burlesque troupes practice is, at its core, so playful and teasing and innocent. It's not hardcore stripping so much as letting your body tell a story; the women are playing characters and unfolding a complete narrative onstage, with beginning, middle, and end. - Author: Karen Abbott
Onstage quotes by Karen Abbott
#172. My mom was onstage when she was pregnant with me. - Author: Zosia Mamet

#175. Queen Latifah used to help me out with my kids, because while we were all out on tour - Public Enemy, Naughty By Nature, Queen Latifah, Heavy D - when Public Enemy went onstage, I didn't have anybody solid to watch my kids. So, Latifah would help me out. - Author: Flavor Flav
Onstage quotes by Flavor Flav

Onstage quotes by Nicole Scherzinger
#178. I only wore makeup when I went onstage. - Author: Little Richard
Onstage quotes by Little Richard
#179. There is something scary about letting ourselves go. It means that we will screw up, that we will relinquish the possibility of perfection. It means that we will say things we didn't mean to say and express feelings we can't explain. It means that we will be onstage and not have complete control, that we won't know what we're going to play until we begin, until the bow is drawn across the strings. While this spontaneous method might be frightening, it's also an extremely valuable source of creativity ... the lesson about letting go is that we contain our own creativity. We are so worried about playing the wrong note or saying the wrong thing that we end up with nothing at all. - Author: Jonah Lehrer
Onstage quotes by Jonah Lehrer
#180. I have a background in theater. At the time I read 'The Loved Ones' script, I was playing Catherine the Great of Russia onstage. Straight after that, I played Stella in 'A Streetcar Named Desire' and Isabella in 'Measure for Measure.' - Author: Robin McLeavy
Onstage quotes by Robin McLeavy
#181. I prefer to connect with fans from the stage. Like, I don't have a Twitter page, or anything like that. So for me, that's what the show is about. For me - is a way to interact with fans; being up onstage and showing them, through music - which is all I really know - the best way to say thank you. - Author: Nate Ruess
Onstage quotes by Nate Ruess
#182. We don't just have equipment to set up, we have a whole stage set: TVs tuned to static, a busted old Moog synthesizer (also tuned to static - it basically just sits onstage, drooling, like a demented robot friend), an ironing board we use as a percussion stand, lamps (because we prefer mood lighting to rock-show lighting), various car parts and kitchen utensils (for hitting), a movie screen we project slides onto and a pair of mannequin legs in a gold lamé miniskirt with a TV for a torso. All this may sound arty, but really, it's just overenthusiastic. - Author: Kristin Hersh
Onstage quotes by Kristin Hersh
#183. My strength as an actor is in the theater - I know that about myself. Some actors get onstage and vanish, but I'm much better there than I am on screen. - Author: Stacy Keach
Onstage quotes by Stacy Keach
#184. It's always been about when I do theater, the audience is just a viewer, not taking part in what's onstage. Whereas if you're doing stand-up, it's inclusive. - Author: Jon Glaser

#186. I love eating chocolate cake and ice cream after a show. I almost justify it in my mind as, 'You were a good boy onstage and you did your show, so now you can have some cake and ice cream.' - Author: Steven Wright
Onstage quotes by Steven Wright
#187. At Woodstock, we would focus our energy on peace, setting aside the onstage discussion of political issues to just groove on what might be possible. It was a chance to see if we could create the kind of world for which we'd been striving throughout the sixties: That would be our political statement - proving that peace and understanding were possible and creating a testament to the value of the counterculture.
It would be three days of peace and music. - Author: Uwe Michael Lang
Onstage quotes by Uwe Michael Lang
#188. Never have your wallet with you onstage. It's bad luck. You shouldn't play the piano with money in your pocket. Play like you need the money.
Tom Waits (to me, about 1986 or so) - Author: Tom Waits
Onstage quotes by Tom Waits
#189. I came up with a new game-show idea recently. It's called The Old Game. You got three old guys with loaded guns onstage. They look back at their lives, see who they were, what they accomplished, how close they came to realizing their dreams. The winner is the one who doesn't blow his brains out. He gets a refrigerator - Author: Chuck Barris

#191. It's the same thing now. When I go onstage the young people scream and holler as much as the older generation. - Author: Etta James
Onstage quotes by Etta James
#192. The music kind of takes care of itself because we've done all that as preproduction in the practice room. So by the time it gets onstage, each song has about one hundred hours of way too much mothering gone into it. So when you see us play live, that is the product of ninety days of practice, over a year of writing, listening to demos on the weekends after practice. - Author: Henry Rollins
Onstage quotes by Henry Rollins

Onstage quotes by Jim Rash
#197. I'm trying to take culture and put it onstage, demonstrate it is capable of sustaining you. There is no idea that can't be contained by life: Asian life, European life, certainly black life. My plays are about love, honor, duty, betrayal - things humans have written about since the beginning of time. - Author: August Wilson
Onstage quotes by August Wilson
#198. I'm always writing; I'm always jotting things down on paper or making notes in my iPhone. Then I'll make myself sit down and kind of shape it up, but there's really no other way to practice other than onstage. - Author: Sarah Silverman
Onstage quotes by Sarah Silverman
#199. I meditate and pray before going onstage - it helps me focus. - Author: Harry Styles
Onstage quotes by Harry Styles
#200. Once in a while I experience an emotion onstage that is so gut-wrenching, so heart-stopping, that I could weep with gratitude and joy. The feeling catches and magnifies so rapidly that it threatens to engulf me. - Author: Julie Andrews Edwards
