Famous quotes containing the words bailey and/or michael:

    It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer. You need less imagination to be a painter, because you can invent things. But in photography everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the ordinary.
    —David Bailey (b. 1938)

    Do we really want to know HOW Michael Jackson makes his music? NO. We want to understand why he needs the bones of the Elephant Man—and, until he tells us, it doesn’t make too much difference whether or not he really is “bad.”
    Frank Zappa (1940–1993)
