Music should be something that makes you gotta move, inside or outside
It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.
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.
The true art of memory is the art of attention.
When you were young, and your heart, was an open book. You used to say, live and let live.
Rhythm is something you either have or don't have, but when you have it, you have it all over.
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
To play without passion is inexcusable!
The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats...
Music with dinner is an insult, both to the cook and the violinist.
Being a celebrity has taught me to hide, but being an actor has opened my soul.
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 music industry can make you feel like a prostitute.
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.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
A great poet is the most precious jewel of a nation.
Rock and roll music, if you like it, if you feel it, you can't help but move to it. That's what happens to me. I can't help it.
What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure.
The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.
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.
Each song is a child I nourish and give my love to. But even if you have never written a song, your life is a song. How can it not be?
