Let silence be the art you practice.
I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.
Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
We're not trying to change the world; just 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.
I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to.
Poets and heroes are of the same race, the latter do what the former conceive.
The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats...
Singers come and go, but if you're a good actor, you can last a long time

It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.
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.
The spoken form is in fact a very restrained representation of what is possible in the musical language.
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.
Music should be something that makes you gotta move, inside or outside
Play it fuckin' loud!
When you were young, and your heart, was an open book. You used to say, live and let live.
Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.
Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
