(addressing young people who may romanticize the 1960s) Don't just ape our movement. Don't do hippie poses. Look at us. Admit to yourself that we only took it so far. Build from where we left off.


I know my generation - a lot of them, they're getting old now, and they want to think back fondly, they want to kid themselves. A lot of them think, "Yeah, we were the best". That's the kiss of death. That's non-growth. And also that's very bad for the world.


My favorite line in all of literature is Rudyard Kipling's monkey: "My people are the wisest people in the jungle, my people have always said so."


When the world becomes a massive mess with nobody at the helm, it's time for artists to make their mark.


I thrive on change. That's probably why my chord changes are weird, because chords depict emotions. They'll be going along on one key and I'll drop off a cliff, and suddenly they will go into a whole other key signature. That will drive some people crazy, but that's how my life is.


I don't understand why Europeans and South Americans can take more sophistication. Why is it that Americans need to hear their happiness major and their tragedy minor, and as jazzy as they can handle is a seventh chord? Are they not experiencing complex emotions?


Buddy Holly and the early rock 'n' roll was no lighter than the way I play. It's very minimal.


I can't remember anything I ever wrote.


I've got 50 different tunings in the guitar.


I learned a woman is never an old woman.


Not to dismiss Gershwin, but Gershwin is the chip; Ellington was the block.


With a painting, you don't have to go back and paint it again.


You know, Neil Young is singing Rock n' roll will never die, and Neil never rocked and rolled in his life. I mean, he rocked, but he didn't roll. He has got no swing in him.


You have this mounting aggressive ignorance with the rabbit's foot of their particular religion. You don't really have any kind of spiritual law, just a kind of a rabid mental illness. The songs are a little slice of life.


My name had gone stale, and no matter how progressive I got, it was my time to die.
