I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
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.
Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.
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 true art of memory is the art of attention.
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.

We're not trying to change the world; just music.
Poets and heroes are of the same race, the latter do what the former conceive.
To play without passion is inexcusable!
