Brian Auger: Quotes
"Brian Auger is one of the best B-3 artists I have
ever heard in my life. His technique is awesome and the amount of energy
he generates is unparalleled and relentless. He is a tremendous talent
with a wonderfully warm and compassionate personality, a combination that
is hard to beat. He deserves all the accolades."
Herbie Hancock, May 1995
"My favorite rock artists are Van Morrison, Bonnie
Raitt, Brian Auger and Loundon Wainwright"
"His power and love for the music was the foundation for one of
the most memorable tours I have ever done. With this great solid foundation
it made it possible for us to blow free! Brian is a true inspiration to
work with despite the fact he is an Englishman. Brian is a bad Mutha...!!!"
Les McCann, May 1995
"Brian Auger is a superb technician on his instrument, but he also
plays with feeling that is a rarity. I am looking forward in recording
with him in the near future."
Eddie Harris, May 1995
"Brian, Brian man you're crazy!"
"Brian is one of the originators of the high energy Hammond organ
style along with Larry Young in the tradition of Jimmy Smith. I remember
in the late sixties when Brian and I were in London together our paths
crossed at different times both socially and also playing with the likes
of Jimi Hendrix and the guys from that great band of Cream.
I consider Brian a great friend and musician"
Tony Williams, June 1995
"Mr. Brian Auger is a personal friend and great artist. I have
had the opportunity to work with Brian just as a trio, he made his keyboard
sound like a big band! He is a composer, arranger, complete keyboard player,
a great accompanist. I enjoy playing with Brian, he can really make it
Louis Bellson, June 1995
"Those who remain oblivious to the obvious delights of Brian Auger's
Oblivion Express do so at their own risk!"
Beastie Boys, June 1995
"When I first heard Brian's album "Definitely What",
I could not believe how ahead of it's time it was. A visionary is his
own time, with music that still comes over fresh today - and he's still
doing it just as great - keep up the good work mate!"
Simon Bartholomew, The Brand New Heavies, June 1995
