Comedy is the blues for people who can?t sing.
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
Play it fuckin' loud!

Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity.
Let silence be the art you practice.
Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time

You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
Being a celebrity has taught me to hide, but being an actor has opened my soul.
Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
