->''Iíve always invested more in the material than the musician and I believe regarding the distribution of my work that the music is no longer mine anyway, itís an experience that I participate in. I contribute to it and obviously Iím producing it but the song itself is a third party and I believe it has greater force and power and strength and sustainability than I do. The song is going to live a lot longer than I will.''
