Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
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.
Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time

Play it fuckin' loud!
Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.

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.
Poets and heroes are of the same race, the latter do what the former conceive.
The earth has music for those who listen.
If you do not breathe through writing, if you do not cry out in writing, or sing in writing, then don't write, because our culture has no use for it.
It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.
