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.

We're not trying to change the world; just music.
I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.
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.
Comedy is the blues for people who can?t sing.
And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
