Tell you what, although, we ain’t ready one other 30 years earlier than we do the subsequent one. The older you get, it appears time goes faster. Yet as quickly as we obtained within the studio it appeared like yesterday that we had been producing our final album. My mum used to say the identical factor in 1960: ’30 years in the past I used to be 17 and it looks as if yesterday.’ ‘How can 30 years in the past look like yesterday?’ says I, barely mockingly. ‘Well it bloody effectively does’, says mum, getting the deserved final phrase, and that is that.”
