Favorite albums of all time - Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon (1973)

“We knew it had a lot more melody than previous Floyd albums, and there was a concept that ran all through it. The music was easier to absorb and having girls singing away added a commercial touch that none of our records had.” - Rick Wright

Favorite albums of all time - Jack White’s Blunderbuss (2012)

“It’s kind of ridiculous to try to emulate a certain time period or person or what they did. You could go onstage and be like, ‘I love Robert Johnson so much, I’ll try to sing and play like Robert Johnson.’ That doesn’t do anybody any good, and you can’t do it anyway. You need to be yourself.” - Jack White

Favorite albums of all time - Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours

“We were all writing songs about each other, although we were unaware of it at the time. All the songs were about our troubled relationships, and, I think it was John [McVie] who suggested the name Rumours because we were all writing little journals and diaries about each other.” - Christine McVie

Favorite albums of all time - Paul Simon’s Graceland (1986)

“[Graceland] is one sound evoking a response, and that eventually became a lyric that instead of being about a South African subject or a political subject, it became a traveling song. That’s really the secret of World Music is that people are able to listen to each other, made associations, and play their own music that sounds like it fits into another culture.” - Paul Simon

Favorite albums of all time - Stevie Wonder’s Innervisions (1973)

“For me, I wrote Higher Ground even before the accident. But something must have been telling me that something was going to happen to make me aware of a lot of things and to get myself together. This is like my second chance for life, to do something or to do more, and to value the fact that I am alive.” - Stevie Wonder
