金伯(B. B. King)名言

I have a nice car, a Mercedes. And then I have an old El Camino truck that I'm crazy about. I like to get in that truck and go up in the hills near where I live, in Vegas, and take my camera. That, to me, is Heaven, being out in nature, taking pictures of the wildlife.

我有一辆好车,一辆奔驰。然后我有一辆El Camino的旧卡车我很喜欢。我喜欢上那辆卡车,到维加斯我住的地方附近的山上去,带上我的相机。对我来说,那就是天堂,在大自然中,拍摄野生动物的照片。

The blues was bleeding the same blood as me.

蓝军和我一样流血。

The blues was like that problem child that you may have had in the family. You was a little bit ashamed to let anybody see him, but you loved him. You just didn't know how other people would take it.

蓝调就像你家里的问题孩子。你有点羞于让任何人看到他,但你爱他。你只是不知道别人会怎么看。

Cotton was a force of nature. There's a poetry to it, hoeing and growing cotton.

棉花是一种自然的力量。它有一首诗,锄地和种棉花。

金伯

People all over the world have problems. And as long as people have problems, the blues can never die.

全世界的人都有问题。只要人们有问题,忧郁就永远不会消失。

My wife Martha used to call me Ol' Lemon Face because of my facial contortions when I play Lucille. I squeeze my eyes and open my mouth, raise my eyebrows, cock my head and God knows what else. I look like I'm in torture, when in truth, I'm in ecstasy. I don't do it for show. Every fiber of my being is tingling.

我妻子玛莎以前叫我“老柠檬脸”,因为我演露西尔的时候,我的脸会扭曲。我闭上眼睛,张开嘴,扬起眉毛,翘起头,天知道还有什么。我看起来像在受刑,而事实上,我是在狂喜。我不是为了作秀。我的每一根纤维都在刺痛。

Growing up, I was taught that a man has to defend his family. When the wolf is trying to get in, you gotta stand in the doorway.

长大后,我被教导一个男人必须保卫他的家庭。当狼想进来的时候,你得站在门口。

If T-Bone Walker had been a woman, I would have asked him to marry me. I'd never heard anything like that before: single-string blues played on an electric guitar.

如果T-Bone Walker是个女人,我会向他求婚的。我以前从没听过这样的音乐:电吉他演奏的单弦布鲁斯。
