6. SOUNDBITE (English) Bernie Taupin, composer/artist - OVERLAID WITH ARTWORK
"I'm uncomfortable being called a painter because it's really not painting per se. Although years ago when I started out, I started out very much in the abstract field and there was paint involved. But like every artist, you know, I've evolved over the years trying to find my own sort of niche. I think like in any form of the arts, when you start out, you start emulating the people that have inspired you and that works the same way in music as it does in art."
"It's the same way with all facets of art, whether it's a good book - you know when you're reading a good book you have your own interpretation of the characters in the book. Each person sees them differently and that's the same with art. It's the same with music. It's about using your mind. It's created to stimulate the mind."
