Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
I love rock-n-roll. I think it's an exciting art form. It's revolutionary. Still revolutionary and it changed people. It changed their hearts. But yeah, even rock-n-roll has a lot of rubbish, really bad music.

The spoken form is in fact a very restrained representation of what is possible in the musical language.
Rock and roll music, if you like it, if you feel it, you can't help but move to it. That's what happens to me. I can't help it.
When you were young, and your heart, was an open book. You used to say, live and let live.

The man who writes about himself and his own time is the only man who writes about all people and all time.

Artistic talent is a gift from God and whoever discovers it in himself has a certain obligation: to know that he cannot waste this talent, but must develop it.
We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
People ask me how I make music. I tell them I just step into it. It's like stepping into a river and joining the flow. Every moment in the river has its song.
