Inspirational quotes sometimes do well to boost our psyches, and ones uttered by rock stars can be all the more heartening to us music fans. Especially now, at the start of a new year, a performer's wise words can help us better understand ourselves and our environment. So what better way to reflect and progress in 2022 than with an array of inspirational rock star quotes?

After all, encouragement from rock stars comes built-in with a bevy of specialized insight gained from a music career. When one's chasing the creative muse while also catering to a fanbase, there are bound to be helpful observations and relatable anecdotes that result.
