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 music industry can make you feel like a prostitute.
If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don't write, because our culture has no use for it.
Rhythm is something you either have or don't have, but when you have it, you have it all over.
I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.
The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats...
Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.
Singers come and go, but if you're a good actor, you can last a long time
Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
Poets and heroes are of the same race, the latter do what the former conceive.
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
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.
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.
Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.
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.
Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
