He was the average guy. Maurice, I think, reflected every man.
I am a very sensitive person, very impulsive and emotional.
The cello is such a melancholy instrument, such an isolated, miserable instrument.
People have taught me not to look for intelligence in rockmusic.
You feel the music needs something but you don’t know what. So you start searching, fitting, measuring, trying. Every time you try another angle. And sometimes that’s frustrating, especially if you don’t come up with something for three days.
I don’t use the twang bar anymore. It’s become too popular.
Hendrix rehearsed different drummers, before we met Mitch Mitchell.
I like blues but it is music I am too ignorant to understand.
I got this idea about being afraid to let go of something and being afraid of sinking into a state of almost anesthesia, where you have to trust other people. Just the paranoia of it all. And it seemed to suit the frenetic track. So I just wrote it out and, you know, said it.
I remember a couple of instrumental albums, just don’t ask the names.
My personal favourite is Jeff Beck. All the others are wonderful as well.
We were very influenced by The Beatles, no question.
What is this? It’s music to get a brain seizure by.
Maurice would prance into a room, you know, and his presence was immediate.
A musician can get lost to what he is in the session busines as it was.
Maurice was a silly man. Maurice liked being silly.
