Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure.
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.
Let silence be the art you practice.
Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
Artistic temperament is a disease that afflicts amateurs.
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.
To play without passion is inexcusable!
I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.
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.
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.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through 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 is mediator between spiritual and sensual life.
Artistic talent is a gift from God and whoever discovers it in himself has a certain obligation: to know that he cannot waste this talent, but must develop it.
Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.
It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
We're not trying to change the world; just music.
