To me, meeting Buddy Guy was like meeting a piece of history.
Actually, because I'm so small, when I strike an open A chord I get physically thrown to the left, and when I play an open G chord I go right. That's how hard I play, and that's how a lot of my stage act has come about. I just go where the guitar takes me.
What we admit to is being a rock n' roll band. From day one, I was a big Chuck Berry fan.
I always liked the double cutaway. It looked like two horns. It's like a red devil. So I went to the guitar shop, saw an SG that was sitting there looking rather lonely, and said, 'Hey, that's for me.'
We're a rock group. we're noisy, rowdy, sensational and weird.
There's more to playing the guitar than being able to split your legs.
Every guitarist I would cross paths with would tell me that I should have a flashy guitar, whatever the latest fashion model was, and I used to say, 'Why? Mine works, doesn't it? It's a piece of wood and six strings, and it works.'
I think that's what it is with rock music. It helps you hang tough, I guess.
I'm sick to death of people saying we've made 11 albums that sounds exactly the same, Infact, we've made 12 albums that sound exactly the same.
I just go where the guitar takes me.
