Thomas Dolby Quotes

I tend to gravitate towards stuff that’s really hard. I like a situation that you find yourself in where you really don’t know what you’re doing. I find it terrifying and thrilling in equal measures. What comes out of it often surprises me, because I didn’t know I was capable of doing it.

I’ve always steered clear of situations that involved spontaneous music in an intimate setting. It always sort of terrified me, because I’m really a “studio guy”. I work really hard to achieve the sound and performances that I get. I’m not a spontaneous, song-and-dance guy who can sit down at a piano and jam.
