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.
It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.
Art! Who comprehends her? With whom can one consult concerning this great goddess?
Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
We're not trying to change the world; just music.
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.
The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats...
Intellectual passion drives out sensuality.
Every work of art is an uncommitted crime.
Art not only imitates nature, but also completes its deficiencies.
When you were young, and your heart, was an open book. You used to say, live and let live.

Music can change the world because it can change people.
Music with dinner is an insult, both to the cook and the violinist.
Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
Let silence be the art you practice.
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.
