1On the surface, I'm a very cheerful person, but deep down I just love that dark winding road. I relate well to things being grim.
2[on being a musician and an actor] "Sometimes people go, 'So which is it? Are you a musician or an actor?' I'm entirely and completely a musician. I'm really about making music, and that's my life's work. When a race car driver goes out and plays tennis, nobody goes, 'So are you a tennis player?' I also cook chicken. That doesn't make me a chef."
3Music is the only thing in this world, with the exception of sneezing and looking at the sunset, that takes you to a place that's above the mundane. Everything else is just bullshit.
4Twenty years from now, I'll be in some studio arguing over whether there's too much cello. It's my life's work, and I'd do it all for free.
