Quotes

  • Jamaican reggae is the style of music I always reach for when ranting to friends about how you could listen to one style of music exclusively for the rest of your life – and it would all be great and varied and worth hearing.
  • At least we played well. But I don’t think the irony was lost on people. All these gorgeous, bikinied girls shaking their mammary glands, and we’re playing Creep and looking terrible.
  • Most prog is awful. I’ve got it into my head that prog rock must be good because it attracted a lot of fans. But so far, I’ve just trawled through fairly tedious Genesis albums.
  • I think guitarists are really over-admired and over-revered. I don’t mind when people are telling me about their 1971 Firebird, but it’s the same thing as people telling me about their car or something. It’s fine if you have an interest. By talking with me though, you could be interviewing a novelist about guitars. It’s the same thing, except I don’t write that well either. I like my guitar and I enjoy playing it.
