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.
Adding sound to movies would be like putting lipstick on the Venus de Milo.
Being a celebrity has taught me to hide, but being an actor has opened my soul.
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.
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.
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.
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.
Real popular culture is folk art - coalminers' songs and so forth.
Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.
And I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking.
The earth has music for those who listen.
Music is mediator between spiritual and sensual life.
The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats...
Music can change the world because it can change people.
Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.
When you were young, and your heart, was an open book. You used to say, live and let live.
Play it fuckin' loud!
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 can't listen to that much Wagner. I start getting the urge to conquer Poland.
And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
