The music industry can make you feel like a prostitute.
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.
To play without passion is inexcusable!
Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
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.
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.
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.
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.
The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats...
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.
We're not trying to change the world; just music.
Rhythm is something you either have or don't have, but when you have it, you have it all over.
Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don't write, because our culture has no use for it.
The earth has music for those who listen.
Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
