Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time
The art of art, the glory of expression and the sunshine of the light of letters, is simplicity.
The music industry can make you feel like a prostitute.
Artistic talent is a gift from God and whoever discovers it in himself has a certain obligation: to know that he cannot waste this talent, but must develop it.
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 can change the world because it can change people.

Music is mediator between spiritual and sensual life.
And, in the end The love you take is equal to the love you make.
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.
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.
