If everyone would look for that uniqueness then we would have a very colorful world.
I believe that every person has uniqueness - something that nobody else has.
Depression is something that makes you lose your sight.
If you copy then it is not self-expression.
The other thing that has made playing live for me more enjoyable is the audience. I never knew I had such heartfelt, loving fans.
If you are in a band like my brother, Rudolf, who is in the Scorpions, then you have a kind of umbrella and you cover each other. You have five people to discuss things with and you are all in the same boat, and therefore make much wiser choices.
The music is a personal expression, like art. It is something that you like doing that comes from within, and is an expression that comes from God. That is why artists are beautiful and why people who copy are not really artistic.
Even when I was very depressed, I could hold on to something. It seems that I have always had that streak of gold that I could hold on to.
I prefer playing in the studio because you have much more control over things.
I have made stage adjustments which allow me to hear myself better onstage so that has made playing live much more enjoyable.
If you are a musician and you don't show any interest on the business level then you are actually vulnerable and people will rip you off. They will sweet talk you into anything.
In the past, I have not been able to hear myself. I play with feeling so I need to hear what is coming out of the amplifier to inspire me; I don't just play mechanically.
I view life as a learning experience. It is not so much all about music; it is about what happens when you are doing the music.
I love to be creative.
I need to hear what I am doing in order to create the next note. If I don't hear it then I can't feed myself.
