Music can change the world because it can change people.
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.
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.
Nature scarcely ever gives us the very best; for that we must have recourse to art.
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.
We're not trying to change the world; just music.
It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.
Music is mediator between spiritual and sensual life.
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.
Art not only imitates nature, but also completes its deficiencies.
When you were young, and your heart, was an open book. You used to say, live and let live.
Art is permitted to survive only if it renounces the right to be different, and integrates itself into the omnipotent realm of the profane.
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.
To play without passion is inexcusable!
Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
Every work of art is an uncommitted crime.
Music with dinner is an insult, both to the cook and the violinist.
Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
I'm very happy to hear that my work inspires writers and painters. It's the most beautiful compliment, the greatest reward. Art should always be an exchange.
