Every work of art is an uncommitted crime.
The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity.

One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.

Play it fuckin' loud!
Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.

We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.

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.
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.
