Zitate Van Morrison

„Music to me is spontaneous, writing is spontaneous and it's all based on not trying to do it.“

—  Van Morrison

Interview by Dermot Stokes in Hot Press (March 1978)
Kontext: Music to me is spontaneous, writing is spontaneous and it's all based on not trying to do it. From beginning to end, whether it's writing a song, or playing guitar, or a particular chord sequence, or blowing a horn, it's based on improvisation and spontaneity.

„I can't sell myself. And I don't even want to. That's something that's not going to change.“

—  Van Morrison

Interview in Musician magazine (1987)
Kontext: Where I feel this has cost me is in the personality situation, where you're expected to be a personality. You not only have to write and record, but you have to go out and sell it. Well, I'm not a salesman, and I'm very bad at selling things. If I had to do that for a living, I'd probably be completely broke. I can't sell myself. And I don't even want to. That's something that's not going to change.

„Someone once described me as a maverick and that's what I would say. I'm a maverick not by choice but by conviction.“

—  Van Morrison
