“Rock journalism is people who can’t write interviewing people who can’t talk for people who can’t read” (Frank Zappa)

In 1977, singer/songwriter Frank Zappa was quoted saying: “Rock journalism is people who can’t write interviewing people who can’t talk for people who can’t read”. 

I think that statement is very stereotypical (and ironic).

Besides, how exciting can a writer make an interview?

Musicians express themselves through their music – not their interviews.

And people don’t read magazines for their intellectual content.

It is better to practice a little than talk a lot.

Being a very talkative person, I understand how easy it is to get caught up in a fat conversation about what you plan on doing or what you want to do. However, in today’s day and age you may get left behind if you’re all about talk and not so much about action.

When you are able to talk the talk, as well as walk the walk – simultaneously, you will find quality in anything you put your efforts in to.

“Practice makes perfect” and “actions speak louder than words” so why stand around talking about what you want to do when you could actually just go ahead and do it?
