Famous quotes by Dhani Harrison
'Keep your head down at school.' Those are sage words from my dad. They kept me in check for years.Dhani Harrison
I did Albert Hall, I got to play the Hall of Fame with Prince. So I've done that kind of stuff for ages. It wasn't until after we finished working on Brainwash, my dad's album after he died, then it was like 'That phase is over in my life now, now we can get on with our music, with our band.'Dhani Harrison
I did rebel. I was the rebel in my family, because my dad wanted me to go and just travel with him.Dhani Harrison
I don't really plan to be a pop star I just want to be able to make music without the whole My Dad thing hanging over me, which everyone in my position goes through.Dhani Harrison
I never really saw my dad around when the Iron Maiden and the AC/DC were playing. But he knew what I was doing. I was just absorbing music. So he just kind of left me to my own devices.Dhani Harrison
I was recording stuff with my dad when I was like five, six years old. I played with him on tour. I'd gone with him to Japan in '91, played some gigs, did a couple shows at the Albert Hall.Dhani Harrison
If you were the first person ever to design an application for the iPhone and you patented it, you would be very, very better off than we are right now, you know? But you've got to be the first one to do it. So I figured that Led Zeppelin or the Stones were going to do it unless we just got on to it. So I got cracking with the guys from Apple.Dhani Harrison
It was a relief to be able to do my own band, because I was very responsible for all this amazing music I didn't want to mess up before.Dhani Harrison
My dad used to say to me, 'You look more like me than I do.'Dhani Harrison
One interviewer asked me: 'How do you feel that you've betrayed your father?' That wasn't really very cool.Dhani Harrison
Playing music has always felt very natural. You know, you do try to do other things, and you do learn lessons that way, but, eventually - well... if your dad is a plumber, you become a plumber. It's the family business, and I felt like I was taking over the family business.Dhani Harrison
The music I want to hear in my head sounds somewhere between Jimi Hendrix and Massive Attack. It's not really like my dad, but there will always be similarities because we have the same vocal cords, and I learnt the guitar the way he taught me.Dhani Harrison
Websites are kind of useless. There's so much great web content and design out there, but the ways in which they are being experienced are not being maximized.Dhani Harrison
When my dad toured in '91, I think my first gig properly was the Tokyo Dome, 50,000 people indoors. That was pretty scary. I was 12, or 13.Dhani Harrison
You can' t help being a musician because you've grown up with music, yet being one means being compared to your dad and being slated for it. But I really don't have the ambitions of most people going into the industry.Dhani Harrison
