Every work of art is an uncommitted crime.
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 aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
Art is permitted to survive only if it renounces the right to be different, and integrates itself into the omnipotent realm of the profane.
Singers come and go, but if you're a good actor, you can last a long time
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through 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.
Being a celebrity has taught me to hide, but being an actor has opened my soul.
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.

A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do.
The absence of limitations is the enemy of art.
Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time
Play it fuckin' loud!
Real popular culture is folk art - coalminers' songs and so forth.
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.
Each song is a child I nourish and give my love to. But even if you have never written a song, your life is a song. How can it not be?
I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.
Nature scarcely ever gives us the very best; for that we must have recourse to art.
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.
