Rhythm is something you either have or don't have, but when you have it, you have it all over.
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.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
Artistic temperament is a disease that afflicts amateurs.
Real popular culture is folk art - coalminers' songs and so forth.
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.
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.
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.
And I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking.
Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
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.
Being a celebrity has taught me to hide, but being an actor has opened my soul.
The earth has music for those who listen.
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.
The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.
Music should be something that makes you gotta move, inside or outside
Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
Critics are the men who have failed in literature and art.
I accept chaos, I'm not sure whether it accepts me.
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
