Music with dinner is an insult, both to the cook and the violinist.
Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats...
Play it fuckin' loud!
The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.
Artistic temperament is a disease that afflicts amateurs.
One thing that really appeals to me is this idea of music being a living thing that has an evolution that, in a way, enables the artist to sell a process rather than a piece of product.
And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
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.
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.
Let silence be the art you practice.
Intellectual passion drives out sensuality.

Rhythm is something you either have or don't have, but when you have it, you have it all over.
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.
Singers come and go, but if you're a good actor, you can last a long time
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.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
