To play without passion is inexcusable!
Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.
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.
I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.
And I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking.
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.
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
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.
Play it fuckin' loud!
I can't listen to that much Wagner. I start getting the urge to conquer Poland.
We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
Music should be something that makes you gotta move, inside or outside
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
The absence of limitations is the enemy of art.
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
Singers come and go, but if you're a good actor, you can last a long time
The man who writes about himself and his own time is the only man who writes about all people and all time.
Art is permitted to survive only if it renounces the right to be different, and integrates itself into the omnipotent realm of the profane.
It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.
Let silence be the art you practice.
