To not be modest about it, you'll find that with only a couple of exceptions, most of the musicians that I've worked with have done their best work by far with me.


There, in the chords and melodies, is everything I want to say. The words just jolly it along. It's always been my way of expressing what, for me, is inexpressible by any other means.


Sometimes you stumble across a few chords that put you in a reflective place.


I went through all the musicians in my life who I admire as bright, intelligent, virtuosic players.


I always had a repulsive need to be something more than human.


I've started doing book reviews for Barnes & Noble! They saw that I did a lot of book reviews on the site, and they figured that it might not be a bad thing if they got me to do some for them as well. I gave them five categories I'd be interested in reviewing, from art to fiction to music.


Fame can take interesting men and thrust mediocrity upon them.


I'm just an individual who doesn't feel that I need to have somebody qualify my work in any particular way. I'm working for me.


Anxiety and spiritual searching have been consistent themes with me, and that figures into my worldview. But I tend to make my songs sound like relationship songs.


As you get older, the questions come down to about two or three. How long? And what do I do with the time I've got left?


Music itself is going to become like running water or electricity. So it's like, just take advantage of these last few years because none of this is ever going to happen again. You'd better be prepared for doing a lot of touring because that's really the only unique situation that's going to be left.


Tony Visconti and I had been wanting to work together again for a few years now. Both of us had fairly large commitments and for a long time we couldn't see a space in which we could get anything together.


However, there's no theme or concept behind Heathen, just a number of songs but somehow there is a thread that runs through it that is quite as strong as any of my thematic type albums.


I'm in awe of the universe, but I don't necessarily believe there's an intelligence or agent behind it. I do have a passion for the visual in religious rituals, though, even though they may be completely empty and bereft of substance. The incense is powerful and provocative, whether Buddhist or Catholic.


I believe that I often bring out the best in somebody's talents.


I feel confident imposing change on myself. It's a lot more fun progressing than looking back. That's why I need to throw curve balls.


Tomorrow belongs to those who can hear it coming.


I had to resign myself, many years ago, that I'm not too articulate when it comes to explaining how I feel about things. But my music does it for me, it really does.


My son's full real name is Duncan Zowie Haywood. As a toddler, he was called by his second name Zowie. But it was such an identifiable name during the Seventies that if I called him loudly in public places, everyone would turn to stare, so I started calling him Joey to take the pressure off.


I don't know where I'm going from here, but I promise it won't be boring.
