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.
Singers come and go, but if you're a good actor, you can last a long time
I accept chaos, I'm not sure whether it accepts me.
The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity.
I have a genuine love affair with my audience. When I`m on stage they`re not privileged to see me. It`s a privilege for me to see them.

Each song is a child I nourish and give my love to. But even if you have never written a song, your life is a song. How can it not be?
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.

Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.
What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure.
I think another thing is that we don't really want exclusivity. We accept that it is in the artist's interest to be on sale in every place where they sell music.
To play without passion is inexcusable!
