I've gone through hell and back.
What we're doing is a retrospective, a refined look at how far we've come in what's known as progressive music and investigate and explore that.
We'll be presenting a broad spectrum of the music and looking at how the younger guys can carry it on.
We set the stage worldwide to go into the new millenium. I have all the music. Carl Palmer loves the music, he wants to play it.
My sons are into German music, but they are into all kinds of music.
My mother had all these scrap books she kept and the reviews, I was also fortunate to have a list of every gig I've ever played in my life.
I was always playing the Hammond Organ back to front even during the days of the Nice, going back to 1968. Really what I was doing there, was choosing notes at random and trying to make some sense of them, improvising back to front.
I love my mother dearly, but it wouldn't be suitable for me to live with her all the time.
At the Isle of Wight, the sound went out and kind of kept on going. And I wasn't... when I came off stage I was kind of unhappy about how we had played. But now, I listen back to those recordings and it's not bad.
They were keen for me still to play the piano, which I was going to, but 45 minutes of piano would be extremely boring. I like a bit of light and shade.
I had written movie scores, television series, played with other people. Carl had done the same with Asia, with other bands, everything. We weren't about to entrust Greg automatically with a production credit.
I don't regard myself as a great classical or jazz pianist. I like country music, but I'm not a great player. I just like music. Drums 'n' bass is pretty exciting and I'd love to explore it.
I consider everything I compose a gift.
I'm probably too forgiving sometimes. You have to understand that when you have a commitment to do a tour, you have to keep everything on an up level.
Find a good teacher, as I found for my sons. I feel the worst thing you can do is to try and teach your own children yourself, because there is a natural rebellion that occurs.
I don't care who I play to, as long as they enjoy listening to what I play.
I've never written a book before.
I've broken my nose, I've broken ribs. You name it. In fact, we just got back from South America, and I fell over a monitor speaker on the stage and almost ended up in the front row of the audience. I managed to sprain my wrist on that one but luckily nothing was broken.
