Really good to hear how my simple piano part has developed.
Great quote from Lou in one book written about him (can’t remember which do you? please comment if so.)
I was quoted (I’m pretty sure I didn’t say it) as saying Lou couldn’t play after six o’clock because of taking too many drugs, anyway when Lou was asked about this he said “Blue couldn’t play before or after six and he didn’t f**king take any”. I was so nervous and in awe playing with all the guys, imagine being asked to come and have a warm up jam with a few guys, as Bob Ezrin put it when he saw me drinking my half pint at the bar in Morgan Studios, when I walked in the studio there was Jack Bruce, Aynsley Dunbar,Steve Hunter,Gene Martynec and Steve Windwood had just had to leave and they expected “me” to take over?
