Art is life and death, and it doesn’t matter which. Music, art, literature, it has to be free, has to be chaos, out of control, dangerous, obsessed, passionate, violent! In essence, no matter how many times they are seen as crimes and thrown in jail, they remain outside. Explain that! How art precedes you? How passion, how music, how story telling is lung-less, needs nothing, survives ultimately, outlives you?
