Being famous is having the power to really implement positive change in the world, and it gives you the power to do what you want. I'm really grateful for it because I can play music and people will listen.
Making films is great. You've got 100 people around and you're all dressing up and making weird art-it's a fun group activity.
Putting out commercial pieces and promoting them and trying to sell them to people is not necessarily what it means to be an artist.
I like songs and film because you can turn your life into a sort of myth or dream.
I spend my time trying to figure art out. I was brought up to believe that the way one processes information is by making it into art. That's how I live my life.
The most important thing in my father's life? World peace. Me and my brother. My mom.
I like music because it's the only invisible art form.

Growing up, I fantasized about being a rock musician and that somehow it would be really easy. I didn't realize that it's so much work.
Songwriting is kind of like a craft. It's not something that just comes in a dream. You've got to work at it.
The work I've done, I'm really feeling the effects of it.
I'm not trying to overcome my father or fill his shoes or reach any kind of level that he did. We're talking about a Mozart of rock music.
