I think in terms of emotions. And feelings. So sometimes what I say may not always be clear. But creatively, there's a lot to be said for that way of thinking.
I still believe that something is right only when it feels right.
I believe that music is God's voice.
You say how you feel, and songs don't lie. Songs are the most honest form of human expression there is--there's nothing that lies about a song.
If there's not love present, it's much, much harder to function. When there's love present, it's easier to deal with life.
The only reason I'd ever get a sex change operation is to see what it's like to be right all the time.
Some people might think that sex is the highest experience you can have. I tend to think that music is.
Humor - it helps to make the vibe better - it loosens up the vibrations.
I approach my music-making as an art-form--something pure from the spirit to which I can add dynamics and marketable reality. Music is genuine and healthy and the stimulation I get from molding it and adding dynamics is like nothing else on earth.
I'm not a genius. I'm just a hard-working guy.
The idea of taking a song, envisioning the overall sound in my head and then bringing the arrangement to life in the studio...well, that gives me satisfaction like nothing else.
Summer means happy times and good sunshine. It means going to the beach, going to Disneyland, having fun.
I consider myself to be a crusader of love. I try to spread love around the world as best I can because I know I have a handle on love.
I have auditory hallucinations, I hear voices saying derogatory things, like I'm terrible and I'm going to die, and they're usually worse in the afternoon.
Every now and then I hear voices in my head, but not very clear. I can't understand what they are saying. It's a mental illness. I have been diagnosed as a manic depressive.
I've never written one note or word of music simply because I think it will make money.
I wake up in the morning and I say 'Ahh! Today's the day for a song! I'm going to write a song today!' And I do. I write a song.
Love and mercy that's what you need tonight. Love and mercy to you and your friends tonight.
People are part of my music. A lot of my songs are the result of emotional experiences, sadness, pain, joy, and exultation in nature and sunshine and so on...like 'California Girls' which was a hymn to youth.
I have an instinct for music, or a feeling about it, and I'll have my feelings guide my hands.
I'm happy; I'm a happy person.
I'm doing good. I've had a slight nervous breakdown in the '60s. I got through that. And I got through the '70s. And I was in a doctor's program during the '80s and then I met Melinda and we've been together ever since. I've got a happy life.
I think about God, yes, and I wonder if there is a God. And if there is a God, will God please help me through my hard trips.
I have stage fright every single concert I've ever done. I have at least four or five minutes of it. It's absolute living hell.
I sit and I write automatically. I don't really try to write. My subconscious mind takes over and writes the songs for me. Songs come very easily for me. When I'm inspired, it takes me 20 minutes to write a song.
