“Miles Davis is Superman to us…literally. We wouldn’t be musicians if it wasn’t for him. He was the first rock star.” – Semi Precious Weapons
“Miles Davis’s name to me means ‘legendary.’ I think all R&B is inspired by Jazz and Blues. I think it’s the most passionate kind of music.” – Jhene Aiko
“It would be hard to make up a character as cool, as stylish and as musical, and just a wicked mother fucker – as Miles Davis. And thank the universe or whatever it was that he really did exist. And he really made some insane fucking music.” — Wayne Coyne, Flaming Lips
