Being a celebrity has taught me to hide, but being an actor has opened my soul.
A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
Comedy is the blues for people who can?t sing.
Music should be something that makes you gotta move, inside or outside
Art is permitted to survive only if it renounces the right to be different, and integrates itself into the omnipotent realm of the profane.
You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
And I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking.
We're not trying to change the world; just music.
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.
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.
Intellectual passion drives out sensuality.
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.
Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
Music with dinner is an insult, both to the cook and the violinist.

Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time
Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.
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.
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.
