An F. Scott Fitzgerald quote: 'Genius is the ability to put into effect what is in your mind'.....

..something that Bill Nelson is able to do with his music...a head full of wondrous musical ideas and possibilities..which he is (somehow) able to channel through into actual, 'physical' music.. 8)

Only a few, in the whole scheme of things, can achieve such a process...ultimately producing wonderful music that the whole world can listen to...what a very special gift :D 8)

So there you have it, it's official ! :wink: , according to F. Scott Fitzgerald...and all his Dreamsville (& other) fans (I strongly presume)....

...Bill Nelson..you are officially a genius !.. :D ........(and long may you stay one).

Any other cool Dreamsville people with cool quotes ??

Nick.

There are more horses arses in the world than there are horses

It is not sufficient that I succeed, all others must fail.

Those that Gods would destroy they first drive mad.

Success is like a fart , only your own smells good.
