We're not trying to change the world; just music.
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.
Play it fuckin' loud!
Adding sound to movies would be like putting lipstick on the Venus de Milo.
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.
Singers come and go, but if you're a good actor, you can last a long time
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.
Poets and heroes are of the same race, the latter do what the former conceive.
To play without passion is inexcusable!
Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.
It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.
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 is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
Comedy is the blues for people who can?t sing.
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats...
Music should be something that makes you gotta move, inside or outside
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.
