There were 15 crazy guys [in The Pogues], the crew as well. We fell around the world. I don’t know how we got from point A to point B. We were all piss drunk all the time.

Master Class with Jeremy Denk and students of the Chamber Music Society going over the Dvorak Piano Quintet in A major, B. 155, Op. 81. Very fun to see the little adjustments Denk brings out of the students and how it affects the music

I don’t understand religion. I don’t get it at all. I understand why people need it, but I think they’re wrong. They don’t. I do see that on a crude-ish level, when someone dies, it’s nice and comforting to think that they’re going to heaven and that they’re going to be wrapped up warm for eternity. But they’re not. Heaven doesn’t exist. If you just think about it for a minute, the person is dead, they’re gone, they’re not coming back, and you’ll never see them again. And when you go, you’ll never see anybody again. Just face it. I feel stronger because of it. Knowing that I can’t lean on religion to get through life. If you are leaning on it, you won’t be living your life to the fullest.

If you think you can leave the past behind \ You must be out of your mind \ If you think you can simply press rewind \ You must be out of your mind, son \ You must be out of your mind \

We expected that the performance will become viral and be controversial, that was the plan from the beginning. It is better to look at beautiful models pretending to play the guitar than ugly musicians who actually play the guitar.
