A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do.
Music is mediator between spiritual and sensual life.
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
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.
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.

One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.
A great poet is the most precious jewel of a nation.
Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.
Art is permitted to survive only if it renounces the right to be different, and integrates itself into the omnipotent realm of the profane.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.

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.
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure.
Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
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.
