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.
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.
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
To play without passion is inexcusable!
Art not only imitates nature, but also completes its deficiencies.
Music can change the world because it can change people.
Comedy is the blues for people who can?t sing.
Let silence be the art you practice.
And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
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.
Intellectual passion drives out sensuality.
Once you become predictable, no one's interested anymore.
I passionately hate the idea of being with it, I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.
Real popular culture is folk art - coalminers' songs and so forth.
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.
I can't listen to that much Wagner. I start getting the urge to conquer Poland.
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
Art! Who comprehends her? With whom can one consult concerning this great goddess?
Play it fuckin' loud!
