I wouldn't say no to other kinds of musical opportunities. I guess that it just depends on what it was or what it required me to do, and if I felt that it compromised my own soul.
I'm like a bad musical cliche because I bring my guitar on the road and try to write songs in hotel rooms.
I've created several musical trends, really. That's not because I'm so far out and fabulous. It's because most bands have no ideas of their own. They're so desperate they'll grab at any old straw.
By 1969, when I celebrated 45 years in the music business, I also had 45 people in our musical family.
I'm driven by the idea of characters and the song-cycle form is similar to a musical.
Hall & Oates is one of the few musical groups as satisfying now as it was back then. There's something incredibly musically satisfying about their songs. Nothing has diminished my love for them.
I like involved projects. I'm driven by the idea of characters and the song-cycle form is similar to a musical.
I'm doing a new musical on Broadway, which opens in October called 'The Boy from Oz,' where I play Peter Allen. For those of you who don't know, he became first famous in America for marrying Liza Minelli.
Because I was a dancer, I started going to auditions for musical theater, which forced me to sing.
I'm not that musical. I don't really know how a record is produced, and, funnily enough, I don't want to.
I'm not suggesting people abandon musical instruments and start playing their cars and apartments, but I do think the reign of music as a commodity made only by professionals might be winding down.

I've got a pretty good musical ear, and I can pick things up.
What is beautiful enchants me. I mean not just physical beauty but a wider concept of beauty. There is beauty in poetry and in great musical or singing performances. There is beauty everywhere if you can just see it.
Hollywood producers aren't going to say, 'Get me that swearing, grey-haired, headless chicken. We need him for our new 'High School Musical' movie!'
I'm wary about this thing about being in the generation of social networking where people are like, 'I am my musical taste.' I am not just a collection of music. Or a collection of movies. I think that's a thing that people romanticize: 'Oh my God, she likes this band so she is a dream.'
Being a musician is very easy. My house is full of musical instruments. There's a lot of music, always.
The band is a living, breathing thing. It grows in the same way we do as human beings and if it doesn't, it dies. It's important to feed the organism, and one way of doing that is to set musical challenges that keep it alive.
No, I like being a role model because I know how much comfort my musical idols brought me.
I would love to sing. I would love to do a musical, but I wouldn't say that that singing is my strong suit.
My background is in musical comedy. I didn't know I was going to be an actor. But all my points of reference have to do with musical comedy and in being kind of a showoff.
I want to do a musical movie. Like Evita, but with good music.
I have a fantastic studio in my home, and it's my biggest toy. I have about a half a million dollars worth of musical equipment in my house.

I was the dork in high school who sang musical numbers up and down the hallways.
