Elvis Costello
When I was quite a young man I dove into the rock-n-roll life head first and when I emerged I couldn't recognize myself so much. Not physically. I had lost some of my moral bearings. Only moments before I had stood off to the side of such debauchery like a disapproving little prude. 
Rufus Wainwright
A songwriter needs to go to the dark side. It's necessary to put yourself in harm's way. And it's a great challenge to come back. The challenge is not to stay there. You go to the next level when you redeem yourself.
