If you can imagine a world that has no music in it, it would be a very different world, so music does change the world by virtue of all the music in it. Cumulative music of every kind, from banging a drum to playing a flute or recording symphonies, or singing ‘War, what is it good for?’ All those things change the whole way we live.”

Things are just invented about your personal life and you just have to take that. It’s bullshit. People believe it, though. They just believe everything they read.”

  • “I believe we should encourage children to sing and play instruments from an early age.”

  • “People have this obsession. They want you to be like you were in 1969. They want you to, because otherwise their youth goes with you. It’s very selfish, but it’s understandable.”

  • “The only performance that makes it, that makes it all the way is the one that achieves madness.”
