Music should be something that makes you gotta move, inside or outside
The music industry can make you feel like a prostitute.
Being a celebrity has taught me to hide, but being an actor has opened my soul.
I'm very happy to hear that my work inspires writers and painters. It's the most beautiful compliment, the greatest reward. Art should always be an exchange.
Play it fuckin' loud!
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.
Singers come and go, but if you're a good actor, you can last a long time
I paint objects as I think them, not as I see them.
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.
The spoken form is in fact a very restrained representation of what is possible in the musical language.
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.
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
Every actor in his heart believes everything bad that's printed about him.
The earth has music for those who listen.
Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.
The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats...
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.
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.
Real popular culture is folk art - coalminers' songs and so forth.
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
