The British feel of blues has been hard, rather than emotional. Far too much emphasis on 12 bar, too little attention to words, far too little originality.
I must have been heavily schizophrenic all my life. The me who hears what the other me can't play is the dominant one.
I guess music, particularly the blues, is the only form of schizophrenia that has organised itself into being both legal and beneficial to society.
I can't explain why one wants to pass a particular sort of pain onto other people, but you do.
Blues and jazz pulled me away from what was left of my family.
