A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between, he does what he wants to do. And I’ll stand on the ocean until I start sinking. Everything in the universe has a rhythm, everything dances.
I accept chaos, I’m not sure whether it accepts me.
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.
When you were young, and your heart, was an open book.
You used to say, live and let live.
And, in the end,
The love you take is equal to the love you make.
Each song is a child I nourish and give my love to.
But even if you have never written a song, your life is a song.
How can it not be?
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. Intellectual passion drives out sensuality. Art is never finished, only abandoned. Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is a painting that is felt rather than seen. Rhythm is something you either have or don’t have, but when you have it, you have it all over. 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.
