Music should be something that makes you gotta move, inside or outside
I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.
To play without passion is inexcusable!
Real popular culture is folk art - coalminers' songs and so forth.
Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
When you were young, and your heart, was an open book. You used to say, live and let live.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
Play it fuckin' loud!
Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.
The true art of memory is the art of attention.
The absence of limitations is the enemy of art.
If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don't write, because our culture has no use for it.
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.
The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity.
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.
Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
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.
