Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
Play it fuckin' loud!
Critics are the men who have failed in literature and art.
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 absence of limitations is the enemy of art.
Let silence be the art you practice.
Singers come and go, but if you're a good actor, you can last a long time
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.
We're not trying to change the world; just music.
The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.
Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time
A great poet is the most precious jewel of a nation.
Music should be something that makes you gotta move, inside or outside
The true art of memory is the art of attention.
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
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.
Nature scarcely ever gives us the very best; for that we must have recourse to art.
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.
