Quotes I first met Bill in August 2013, he met me and interviewed me for a book he is writing. Bill was amazing, putting me at ease, asked the right questions and treated me with an enormous amount of respect in regards to my condition of 'terminal cancer'. Bill asked a question that still makes me smile, he was concerned about my family. So not only was he a true professional, he showed a caring compassionate side for me and for my family, he knew what was important, he still does. I was able to get a few things off my chest that id kept bottled up, he found a way to let that happen, he knew what he was doing! A few days later i had a gathering for my friends, Bill said he'd like to come, he did, he turned up, mixed in with my friends like he had been one for years, not 3 days! He is an infectious soul, a man of his word which means his work is nothing but brilliant and honest. Its a pleasure to call Bill a friend now! Quotes

Quotes Bill Quinn is the 'real thing'. Real support for hard working bands and performers, real passion for live music, real talent behind the microphone. When Bill interviews an act, MC's at a festival, promotes the music he loves, people stop and listen - because it's real and from the heart. I speak from personal experience. Bill has never stopped supporting Grimick from the first time he saw us perform. Thanks Bill, it's a delight to catch up with you at any festival. Your passion and love for music is infectious. Cheers, Griff (Grimck) Quotes

Quotes What sets Bill Quinn apart from many of his peers in the media is his grass roots involvement, and understanding of the inner sanctum of music, arts, and culture. Over the years, I have seen Bill in roles as an MC, managing people, timetables, event logistics, and media production. He is an avid and passsionate supporter of the arts, and has a knowledge and unique perception second to none. His contribution to Australian music is tireless. He's one of those people that has done everything for many weeks and months before you get to a show or event that you loved. We need more Bills in the Australian music industry! Quotes
