The man who never dreams, goes slowly mad.
I was desperate really for people not to accuse me of coldness. It was taboo.
The games industry is already bigger than the music industry, and it's mainly directed at teenage boys.
So evidently music was a killer app and is a killer app for computer and the Internet; it just took the tech industry a long time to hear that message.
Well, you know, I mean, I first did my live shows in the late 70's and in those days I had a boatload of equipment that always seemed to be going wrong.
It's been over 15 years since I toured... over 12 years since I did any recording under my own name. I never really intended to take that long of a hiatus.
So a more sensible thing it seemed to me was to go to Silicon Valley and be pushing on the technology companies to accelerate the use of audio and music in computers.
I was very pleased to find that once I had records out music videos were starting to happen, so I directed some of my own music videos and got to experiment in other areas of expression.
So I'll set a cycle in motion and pop it into record and I'll lay down a drum pattern, a bass line, a keyboard and guitar part, and once the groove is going I launch into the song and sing my song over the top.
