Did you decide that before the recordings or just happened? I plug the guitar into the computer, and then I play around with various plugins. Sometimes it is quite processed and might Πρώτη Φορά - Various - Είπες Πως Μ Αγαπάς - Only You a bit like a synth.
Also, when I play live, the guitar goes through a laptop and the bass effects are also Hes A Woman Shes A Man - Scorpions - Tokyo Tapes the computer not all the time but sometimes. I try different things and, if it sounds good to me then it stays.
You know, those things are not interesting. I reinvent Πρώτη Φορά - Various - Είπες Πως Μ Αγαπάς - Only You as I go along. It can be, obviously, interpreted in different ways. It could be interpreted as being completely sarcastic or as a question. We also, on a different level, become a bit obsessed with the idea of happiness and we become a bit obsessed with trying to find happiness.
People try to find some satisfaction and happiness, in a way that is relatively new. So the title works on different levels. Contrary to your past albums, where you produced the whole thing, this time you share it with others. You felt it too much to work by yourself or you just wanted to share it? I just thought about the process of how you do it and, a lot of the time, the songs are kind of composed as you work on them. Then whoever was working with me arrived or and we work the rest of the day together.
The whole work process became quite fast because of that process. What are your Stepping Stone - Clannad - Sirius from the recordings? You know Anthony Kiedis, in his autobiography, explains some crazy stories, Tomasz Budzyński - Luna as the one with the box of pizza.
And he was right, you know, they were very young. And we talked about the pizza box incident, and I said that I knew exactly what was going to happen. So when a shit on a pizza box was placed on his mixing desk he completely freaked out and probably lost his mind. How you remember the making of this album and how do you remember Michael as a musician and a person 22 years after his death?
I miss him very much. We were very good friends. Would you play some guitar on my solo album? So off I went to his house in the South of France and we just set up a recording studio, Πρώτη Φορά - Various - Είπες Πως Μ Αγαπάς - Only You one of the bedrooms, and we worked there every day for the whole summer. We would also hang out in great places together. We had a good time, as well as working. But what surprised me was, that even though he had a reputation for being a playboy, how much work he would put into a song.
And I thought that was very inventive. Unusual for vocalists to do that. He was totally on it and he worked hard to get the right result. In my opinion he had a great voice. Was it something you approved? He came up to my studio, and I had a whole section written for him to sing on. I think they were very inventive and very clever. Great productions. Tony Visconti was involved as well. As a band you inspired so many successful artists, from R.
Why do you think that you are less successful than you deserve? You know the thing about bands that become very successful is that they are motivated, they work hard, they do a lot of gigs and all that stuff.
How do you see this scene and the revivals generally? There are many different bands and many different styles. For example there is a great artist called La Roux. So many different bands have found things very exciting and inspirational from Gang of Four. I remember Tom Morello said that you are one of the main influences on his guitar playing.
Which guitar players are your favourite? Probably Jimi Hendrix, and also a British band called Dr. Feelgood and their guitar player Wilko Johnson. He was a big influence on me, that rhythmic, robotic style. He was a real influence on me for sure.
You had so many line up changes and two break ups over the years. Do you think that was an obstacle for the band or it was helpful? Dave Allen played the bass on the first record, Hugo played the drums. You are a band well known for your social-political themes in your lyrics.
So I want to ask you if you see a hope in this whole situation with the rise of Far-right, the economic crisis, Brexit and all those things that happening in the planet and but mostly in Europe? Sometimes you wonder if the European project will survive Mississippi Queen - Joe Lynn Turner - Under Cover 2 of this.
That vote was a joke and now after 3 years they should give a second vote, because now they know more about it. In few days you come to Greece again for two shows. What are your memories from your past visits? Last time we played in Athens and Thessaloniki and I stayed with my wife. We went to a hotel that was very close to Mount Olympus.
And I loved it. There was so much thunder. It was as if the gods were speaking. That was one of the things I loved the most and also the friendliness of the Greek people. Ok Mr. Thanks for your time and I hope to see you again in a few days!
