I mean, there's times to rock and roll, and I love that too. But I think my first love is acoustic music.
The sax solo as we know it today would not exist without Gerry Rafferty. His 1978 soft-rock classic 'Baker Street' has to be the 'Ulysses' of rock & roll saxophone, giving the entire chorus over to Raphael Ravenscroft's sax solo, creating one of the Seventies' most enduringly creepy sounds.
People called rock & roll 'African music.' They called it 'voodoo music.' They said that it would drive the kids insane. They said that it was just a flash in the pan - the same thing that they always used to say about hip-hop.
Ian Gillan, Roger Glover and I wanted to be a hard rock band - we wanted to play rock and roll only.
It all started when my dog began getting free roll over minutes.
