 n.— «“Everyone who’s heard me has liked me, it’s just that most people didn’t hear me.…It was rarely anything I did—I wasn’t having fits in sessions or refusing to go on the road or strung out on anything—just bad timing, and what I call buzzard’s luck.”» —“Jam! Showbiz: Singer Bettye Lavette covers ‘em” by Mary Dickie Canoe (Can.) Nov. 22, 2005. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
