->''"[Music/NeilYoung] pauses and looks out the window. 'At a certain point, trained, accomplished musicians'--which is to say, not him--'hit the ''wall''. They don't go there very often, they don't have the tools to go through the wall, because it's the ''end of notes''. It's the other side, where there's only tone, sound, ambience, landscape, earthquakes, pictures, fireworks, the sky opening, buildings falling, subways collapsing.... When you go through the wall, the music takes on that kind of atmosphere, and it doesn't translate the way other music translates. When you get to the other side, you can't go back. I don't know too many musicians who try to go through the wall.' He stops for a moment. [[BadassBoast 'I love to go through the wall,']] as if you ever doubted it for a moment."''
