Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.
The absence of limitations is the enemy of art.
I have a genuine love affair with my audience. When I`m on stage they`re not privileged to see me. It`s a privilege for me to see them.
Music is mediator between spiritual and sensual life.
And I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking.
Real popular culture is folk art - coalminers' songs and so forth.
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.
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.
And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
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.
One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.
Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
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.
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 with dinner is an insult, both to the cook and the violinist.
I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.
