People ask me how I make music. I tell them I just step into it. It's like stepping into a river and joining the flow. Every moment in the river has its song.
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 don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.
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.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.
I can't listen to that much Wagner. I start getting the urge to conquer Poland.
Artistic temperament is a disease that afflicts amateurs.
Music should be something that makes you gotta move, inside or outside
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
We're not trying to change the world; just music.
Art is permitted to survive only if it renounces the right to be different, and integrates itself into the omnipotent realm of the profane.
The true art of memory is the art of attention.
Art not only imitates nature, but also completes its deficiencies.
An artist's duty is rather to stay open-minded and in a state where he can receive information and inspiration. You always have to be ready for that little artistic Epiphany.
