The music industry can make you feel like a prostitute.
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.
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.
The spoken form is in fact a very restrained representation of what is possible in the musical language.
Rhythm is something you either have or don't have, but when you have it, you have it all over.
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
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 melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
Art! Who comprehends her? With whom can one consult concerning this great goddess?
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.
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.
Music with dinner is an insult, both to the cook and the violinist.
The true art of memory is the art of attention.
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.
