Wit & Wisdom

“imagine someone that you love, dies suddenly today. Think of how you’d feel, and the things you’d meant to say. All the money in the world, you’d give to bring them home. You see, the wealth you want, you already own” Richard Wilkins

“allow your enjoyment the same freedom as your worries” Richard Wilkins

“if you wanna get the juices flowing in the studio. buy a new toy” Nick van Eede

“…….writing a set list for a gig reminds me of looking at a summer season of cricket. There are the T-20’s: short, punchy, everybody-knows songs..then there are the One day Internationals; More meat on the bone, possibly gripping and often with a big ending. Finally you have the Test matches. Long, indulgent, most go to the bar and often there doesn’t seem to be any end in sight!!” Nick van Eede

“the modern, world-shrinking power of social media is quite mind blowing and anything that takes the money out of the fat, controlling record companies’ coffers is okay by me. Publishers are great; they work hard and pay you what you earn; record companies however are now so corporate, so bloated that it’s almost impossible to deal with them. Of course this is a generalisation…but I can completely see why bands design and make their own CDs and sell them with a handshake and an autograph at the end of gigs. It is the old-fashioned way that has come full circle and I applaud it wholeheartedly!!! Nick van Eede
