A happy wife is a happy life.
Any reaction is better than none.
As an artist, you're pretty sheltered backstage. You often don't know what's going on out there.
As much as we all love playing live, it's not normal to be on the road all the time, to have no home.
Being real is what is important.
Bob Dylan has a way with words that simply blows me away. When he forgets his lyrics he just makes up new ones on the spot, that is what I called talented!
Dub and reggae... I play that a lot around the house.
For the sound we produce, everybody is equally important. Each of us has a very different personality and that is what keeps Bush alive.
I always wrote about things that were important to me. I think our past success showed that it was also important for a lot of others.
I am really addicted to music.
I don't know any musician who got to the top without hard work. Take whoever you want. They all work bloody hard, harder than you think.
I don't see myself as the boss. I sing and write the songs, and it would feel strange if somebody else wrote the lyrics I sang.
I have always been fascinated by dark and mysterious stuff. I guess I have a pretty dark and gloomy side. Writing songs saves me from going completely gonzo.
I love playing live, I don't like studios all that much. I need the reaction of the audience.
I love what I'm doing most of the time, but it's hard work. People only see your albums in the charts. They see us at award shows and after-show parties. They don't know about your doubts, the hard work that goes in.
I pretty much grew up when punk was big in the UK. The Sex Pistols were heroes for me. I used to run around like Johnny Rotten. I had a jacket like his.
I quite like Low, the band from Minnesota. They're absolutely mesmerizing. I get much the same feeling from anything that Will Oldham does.
I was pretty taken with Patti Smith, she was my heroine.
I'm not a workaholic, but I was a bit manic, I have to confess.
If you just keep your head down and just try and do your thing, sometimes magic happens.
It's pretty hard to make out what's going to be a commercial success and what's not.
The Beatles, the Small Faces and the Kinks were great bands, but that was in the '60s.
The only people who benefit from lawsuits are lawyers. I think we made a couple of them rich.
We recorded our first CD, Sixteen Stone, with a small budget and never dreamed that we would enjoy such a high success. It was simply fantastic.
Wherever you look there are inspirations, books, literature, paintings, landscapes, everything. Just living is an inspiration.
