The Belle Lord Talks Importance of Music

Paul Quigley the Belle Lord and frontman of Hells Belles answers:

Why is music so fundamental and important?safe_image.php

There is no other human form that touches on so many levels and fuses them, except perhaps the

visual arts, but they rely solely on vision, detail and colours. Their medium is silent and could be

peace, could be nothingness, could be death. But music is vibrant and alive. And yet, music can use

silence as an emotive tool too, but break out of that silence to raise the dead in a cacophony of

energy. And genre is no restraint to this: whether it is the Pistols, Prokofiev, metal, reggae, folk

 they all rage and woo as requires. That’s why I love my music. I try to understand all this and to

blend if via my own experience. That may be Marshalls on 11, or acoustic balladry on 2. I don’t care

which tools I use, so long as there are people out there who ‘get’ it too. Genre-d music is a

corporate tool of control. Don’t fall into the trap of limiting yourself. Be open, embrace all.cropped-hellsbelles_770x200_logo_c_paul_quigley_2011_regtm

Music is life.

It nourishes, begs nothing, promises everything.

Be at one with your music and be at

one with yourself. Peace out brothers and sisters.
