Comedy is the blues for people who can?t sing.
Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together.
The spoken form is in fact a very restrained representation of what is possible in the musical language.
Rock and roll music, if you like it, if you feel it, you can't help but move to it. That's what happens to me. I can't help it.
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
Being a celebrity has taught me to hide, but being an actor has opened my soul.
Nature scarcely ever gives us the very best; for that we must have recourse to art.
I'm very happy to hear that my work inspires writers and painters. It's the most beautiful compliment, the greatest reward. Art should always be an exchange.
I accept chaos, I'm not sure whether it accepts me.
The only escape from the miseries of life are music and cats...
Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.
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.
Play it fuckin' loud!
Music is the literature of the heart; it commences where speech ends.
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.
And I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinking.
Art is magic delivered from the lie of being truth.
Critics are the men who have failed in literature and art.
And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
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.
Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.
