Comedy is the blues for people who can?t sing.
I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
Play it fuckin' loud!
The true art of memory is the art of attention.
We're not trying to change the world; just music.
Let silence be the art you practice.
To play without passion is inexcusable!
Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.
And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.
The music industry can make you feel like a prostitute.
Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time
Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
Artistic temperament is a disease that afflicts amateurs.
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.
It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.
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.
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
