I guess, we were people who just dedicated to trying to get better.
I would like to shift more into writing for and producing people.
I prefer to think of myself as a musician who is still learning and trying to do something every time out.
There was a time when fast playing and fretboard pyrotechnics on the bass were important to me and when I am recording a bass track, that is still very important to me.
When I usually go to my studio to work, I start with something that is going to take two minutes just to put some idea down and the next thing I know, ten hours have gone by and my family is screaming at me because they want me to come up to have dinner with them.
With the help of modern technology, I can compose intricate keyboard parts and then I have to go back and learn them in order to perform them properly.
Cinderella man, Doing what you can, They can't understand what it means Cinderella man, Hang on to your plans, Try as they might, they cannot steal your dreams
Working at Perfekt, Got me down on my knees. Success to failure, Just a matter of degrees. Working at Perfekt, Got me down on my knees...
I do love using keyboards and I love writing keyboard parts, but I am not a player in the true sense of the word.
I love to write. It's my first love.
I have a lot of hobbies and I can be very remiss in reminding myself to go down to the basement to work.
I have such an extreme attitude about work, where I can just completely be derelict of my responsibilities and then when I am not derelict, I am completely indulged in it. I swing pretty wildly from the two extremes.
With me, satisfaction is always very fleeting with our work. I always get a little restless with it.
I would like to think that Ben and myself have begun a partnership that will take us into different areas of music that we can continue to write, enjoy and keep me involved with music other then what I do with RUSH.
If you have some magical chemistry that actually find the music you make compelling, that is a big bonus.
