A colossus beyond the grasp of most mortals, with his totally uncompromising power, his unsensual and uningratiating way with music as with people.

Itíd be great if the record industry wasnít completely falling apart and peopleís interest in music wasnít totally disappearing. Itís sad on a cultural level. Not even from the perspective of being in a band, just as a fan. Itís heartbreaking to see how little music means to people in modern times. And people say, ďNo, no, no ó music means more than ever before! People are consuming music at a greater rate!Ē Well, that doesnít mean anything, thatís just a statistic. ?All thatís saying is that people are downloading music more than before. That doesnít mean that theyíre listening to it, that they know anything about it, or that theyíre going to see it.

Don McLean: "Madonna is a colossus in the music industry and she is going to be considered an important historical figure as well. She is a fine singer, a fine songwriter and record producer, and she has the power to guarantee success with any song she chooses to record. It is a gift for her to have recorded 'American Pie.'I have heard her version and I think it is sensual and mystical. I also feel that she's chosen autobiographical verses that reflect her career and personal history. I hope it will cause people to ask what's happening to music in America. I have received many gifts from God but this is the first time I have ever received a gift from a goddess."

When people hear music that is spiritual it gets through. Music that is Godlike and loving gets through. I donít have any power in this world, but I have spiritual power. I think God gave me my music and my talent. Iím trying to get across a feeling of spirituality; I think I have a spiritual influence on people.

"The whole Trent Reznor reference... I've had that for years and I think it's just simply because I'm one guy doing music and he's one guy doing music. I mean I can't really say Nine Inch Nails has been a real big influence musically on me but I totally respect what he does and that's totally great... For me, it's more about the european styles of electronic."
