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'm very happy to hear that my work inspires writers and painters. It's the most beautiful compliment, the greatest reward. Art should always be an exchange.
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 mediator between spiritual and sensual life.
And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
Nature scarcely ever gives us the very best; for that we must have recourse to art.
We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
Art not only imitates nature, but also completes its deficiencies.
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through 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.
Play it fuckin' loud!
Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.
Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats...
Artistic temperament is a disease that afflicts amateurs.
Let silence be the art you practice.
It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.
I can't listen to that much Wagner. I start getting the urge to conquer Poland.
