“The next time I see him, I’m going to step on his foot. You print that. I think he’s ridiculous.”

Outside of Miles Davis playing music, Miles Davis talking about music is one of the best things you’ll ever hear. In 1964, Downbeat magazine asked him to share his thoughts on some new music after a blind listening test. It was predictably hilarious. Anyone with any interest in jazz history, American history or creative uses of the word “motherf—er” should definitely, definitely read Davis’ autobiography.
