I’ve always thought that actors wanted to be pop musicians and pop musicians wanted to be actors.
It's a shame because we experienced probably the greatest thing - in art, in pop - we'll ever do. And it would be good to sit around and talk about it.
Only a great actor finds the difficulties of the actor's art infinite.- Ellen Terry
Art is the objectification of feeling, and the subjectification of nature.- Susanne Langer
Any work of art that can be understood is the product of journalism.- Tristan Tzara
Art is subject to arbitrary fashion.- Kary Mullis
Rationalism is the enemy of art, though necessary as a basis for architecture.- Arthur Erickson

For 24 hours a day, for 10 years, all I thought about was being in a band. That’s all I did. I had no other social life. I don’t want my life to be like that now. I’ve spent the past 10 years having a real life as well. But Spandau Ballet is such a difficult shadow to outrun.
Maybe I’ve got to admit that what I did here was enough. I can make some more films. Maybe I’ll direct a film. Maybe I’ll have my musical put on stage. But nothing, really, to be absolutely honest, competes with making a very successful pop band for 10 years of my life.
