This is a fantastic quote from Linda Ronstadt, in a 2005 interview with Marian McPartland, on her radio show Piano Jazz. You can listen to the whole thing here.
“Everyone in my family sang. When we were kids, everybody sang. If we were in the car going anywhere, if you were washing the dishes, if you were outside raking the yard…we sang with each other over the telephone..everyone sang harmonies. It wasn’t until a long time…I was almost, probably fifteen before it occurred to me that everybody didn’t sing. And in this culture we have a nasty habit of delegating art to professionals, which is really, truly a shame. Everyone should do their own singing, dancing, and playing…people should be doing it in their home.”
