[on Ringo Starr] Yeah, it’s like a built-in thing. If I play a song to Ringo I don’t need to say to him, “You know, I want it to go like this”; I just play it and he joins in. He’s got a great feel. Ringo’s like I sort of don’t practice much on the guitar, I sort of pick up and play it when I need to and he’s the same. He never practices, he’s a very naughty boy. But he just gets his sticks and he just does it and it sounds just like Ringo and he can hold the rock steady all day long.

[on creating the album “Cloud Nine”] I thought, “I’m not going to make one of them, you know, sort of clattery records like everybody else seems to be doing this period. I’m going to make a record like something like I did 20 years ago”. Just like a rock n’ roll band making a record. We had real saxes and real guitars, real pianos, real drums, real people playing real songs.

[on the process of making his album “Cloud Nine”] I’m at ease with myself, maybe. I’m happy to be making records, by getting away from the music business I was in a good mood to do it, you know, it’s just the fun of doing it and just trying to sustain the energy and the interest.
