|1||From the age of 16 to 29, I was a freelance musician, and for whoever called, I would do the job, whether it was an orchestral session, a tour, an album or a gig in a pub. Due to the economic climate, I was often asked to do album sessions (Steve Hackett, Gordon Giltrapp, etc.) and also their album tours, but none of these projects were 'real' bands, as the whole responsibility was on the solo artists' shoulders. It seemed that the only way in the '80s that you could join a 'real' band was if a member died! So when Marillion asked me to help them out with the Fugazi album on a session basis, I jumped to it, and after the first gig I realized that there was something very special about this band. During that first tour, they asked me if I would join on a permanent basis. So I took an immediate cut in pay (and it's been the same ever since!) and have never looked back.|
|2||I really enjoy the versatility of the whole Pro Tools recording process.|
|3||Personally, I still don't really know what progressive means. In some people's minds if a piece of music is over 10 minutes long, it automatically gets the label of being progressive. I always enjoy playing arrangements kind of in a classical format, which is in movements. To me, music is either good or bad; it doesn't matter what the label is. The kind of progressive label that I don't like is the one that involves lyrics that quote dancing gnomes, Stonehenge and fairy tales, etc.|
|4||I think there's some really good young bands around at the moment. I personally feel quite detached from the American Idol genre of music and search of fame, but even such shows can show off some extraordinary talents. However people are discovered, if they have the luck and the talent, they will survive in the business. Good luck to anyone that can earn a living out of making music.|
|5||My role in Marillion has always been to try and accompany and complement the music/musicians, whether it's all guns blazing or shaking a maraca, whatever it takes.|
|6||I have always enjoyed working with Steve (Hackett). The man not only is an inspiration to be around, he also has a great sense of humour.|
