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.
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.
Nature scarcely ever gives us the very best; for that we must have recourse to art.
Art is permitted to survive only if it renounces the right to be different, and integrates itself into the omnipotent realm of the profane.
Music should be something that makes you gotta move, inside or outside
Artistic temperament is a disease that afflicts amateurs.
I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.
Critics are the men who have failed in literature and art.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
A great poet is the most precious jewel of a nation.
We're not trying to change the world; just music.
Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.
You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
Intellectual passion drives out sensuality.
Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.
Poets and heroes are of the same race, the latter do what the former conceive.
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 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.
And I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking.
It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.
