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.
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.
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 paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time

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.
The music industry can make you feel like a prostitute.
It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.

And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
A great poet is the most precious jewel of a nation.
Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
Being a celebrity has taught me to hide, but being an actor has opened my soul.
We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
We're not trying to change the world; just music.
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.
Real popular culture is folk art - coalminers' songs and so forth.
