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.
I prefer to think of myself as a musician who is still learning and trying to do something every time out.
But I would be naive not to recognize the number of musicians who tell me they have been influenced by me and sight me – as well as Alex and Neil – as a musician who has been a positive influence on their playing.
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.
