The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity.
Critics are the men who have failed in literature and art.
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.
I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.
The absence of limitations is the enemy of art.
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.
The earth has music for those who listen.
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.
Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
Every work of art is an uncommitted crime.
And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
Art not only imitates nature, but also completes its deficiencies.
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.
Play it fuckin' loud!
To play without passion is inexcusable!
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 accept chaos, I'm not sure whether it accepts me.
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.
A great poet is the most precious jewel of a nation.
