Music is mediator between spiritual and sensual life.
I can't listen to that much Wagner. I start getting the urge to conquer Poland.
The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity.
An artist's duty is rather to stay open-minded and in a state where he can receive information and inspiration. You always have to be ready for that little artistic Epiphany.
Art is permitted to survive only if it renounces the right to be different, and integrates itself into the omnipotent realm of the profane.
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
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.

I accept chaos, I'm not sure whether it accepts me.
The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats...
Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
Poets and heroes are of the same race, the latter do what the former conceive.
Intellectual passion drives out sensuality.
The music industry can make you feel like a prostitute.
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
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 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.
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.
We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
