And to do it well, anger. I got my nicotine candies, you got yours, you got the real ones! I miss them more. Our bureau reds.

Is our member rain and interview with you and I in the they asked you guy cigarette smoking. He said well, Newport, sometimes Marlborough Reds, so I was about
fourteen. I went out and got a pack of both unjust. Your played out What style? I don't know whether new ports need never said it never try the mob Reggie right, while ever whatever I was when I was walking around both in high school trying to figure out how to be keep Richards. Who is a rough? It was a few years by may not. I was in school trying to figure out of the keys. Were anxious to see these strange and I figured it out, we that you, like, I interviewed the president a few weeks ago and I'm actually a little more frazzled about this, because you know President's come and go but day your Keith Richard, you remain forever. That's the idea that serve on the blessing yes like royalty. Man now that there are no crown yeah. I assure you, do I think you do What this is like a target through the nerves in a minute, that's a big deal to meet you your big idle and mine. Now you, when he started plan
you guys started yesterday, come into your. Do you remember the first idle of yours. You met let a rigid really where I'm going ITALY, where you ever we suddenly, we were thrown onto this tour. I made before that. We ve been work in clubs in suddenly we had a record near and they It has shown on this too. We live Richard Low daily. In the every brothers shot I write suddenly met. Half of my childhood mentors all in one, and I am working with them, Sir, which was an amazing education. I mean that's, that's all university for me, I did. Did you talked about? Did you ask a question? Is there anywhere on the rover? Three or four weeks real yeah, I should say gave Jerome Green was his America's play.
chrome is great lush here, and it is my job to get him out of the poverty getting one stage. Aha way. I think those roles changed later in life that guy made AUS willingly. These arose a loose cannon somebody had to do it right, so who ended up becoming great bodies and bow literature It was amazing to watch a stage. Stagecraft alone is music coming? He had an english ban within which they won't bad. I picked up then yeah yeah Basically they were. They were pretty good other wished it at his own bandwidth. But at the same time, then
the way you you never knew where he's gonna appear from right right I mean he let that ban play Lucille that the riff right five minute sooner nonstop right in total darkness, and then he in and the back about thank God, the auditorium in over the spotlight island. And walked through the crowd yeah world through another loud away. you can work aroun. Then I'm learning and learning fakes right. You ve got your last been learned things easier and the everyday brothers so meticulously beautiful. Thus harmonies writing louder, and you were with him for the last three weeks, you did that to sixty three, so that was before in one's news had makers around the same time. It has just come out about the same time. Most last time you listen that record.
The draft again, it's weird thing because, like I listen to their record a lot and I came to the stones much later could on the actual fifty one of the youngest right, but that record, I play the shit I record to me. That was, you know that was the the pure intention, the birth of it all in a way, I guess it was for us anyway, and unease recorded in this little room that ass to call itself a studio. And the whole walls were covered in egg boxes? Bonus culture, improve right, movement have nice and Grundig to track, but
was hung on the wall instead of, if it was on the table, it would have looked. I am pro time on private professional feel yeah every cop out dancing on that is so I started to Tracker rewrite the attic. Did you do it? honest I do now I can't get a witness. Can I beg witness, tell me tell me yeah, and I bet you set out to be a boost ban. right. I was the intention pure straight up and in at that time, you're what I don't know if you guys are friends and I ate a couple weeks- go talk to Richard Thompson, and we're not were friends was hardly ever see. But I know you like us to use a little younger, but he was talking about the scene in London.
That time there were so many bands, and you guys would all see each other late at night like a restaurants in NC, each other play all the time, and what was his seeing you were involved in was all blues right, I mean we restrict green at that time. In the beginning of the sun, strictly in a river, almost Jesuits, I daresay Missionary Our aim was to turn London onto like really blows on the blues right, but was lovers cite the scope for the whole universe would be right that Andrews, three or four or five gigs weak, and
That would be that's it. Who are your guys early on, were who were there the do that you're the most in trying to emulate on the guitar like before chalk straight up, blues derisory t, Beaumont Car, yet a muddy orders very simply body guy yeah swim are ours. I lay and debt slim in Jimmy Ray. I was yet Jimmy Rivers Hoddan Jimmy, Ria big we were not so much interested in being. The virtuosos was how those guys got that's right right. And at ass it was the thing China get close to making. Current siren yeah and we still
Do what you and bride was sought, an star Vieira, always Brien's thing. He was what was he into most? We, both Browning Ryan, very big and Jimmy Red. Ok, yes, without came fire so make, and I were also indicate that Brian had reckoned Swag Railway didn't miss had the muddy waters, and I had the chart very Brian Ed, The Jimmy red. Ok, I saw mean there is an obvious collection connection, but Jimmy reach stuff, I still think, is some of the most beautifully recorded stuff. So simple pleasure. He doesn't weird thing right on the on the five he fired. You re leaves at obey because, if you're playing any when he's bearing the five cord, eight lets the three core that the sums
still. Rather, he leaves the ale memory the Asia Open. I learn that from got it via the gulls. Oh really here see you hit me. Do that because he'd been on the road with Jimmy, read so he had me to the weird thing that makes that down is like E. Does this data open a strange? China get that for years. I will never forget it. It's funny how those moments happened. I mentioned they must have been a few of those moments. Wait when you're putting together you chops, where you're, like all thought, that's echoes! Are you kidding me keep looking out at the early pull that liquor even with shop. When you did a movie with them, they have easy we're. The argument about the beginning of our Karel, though, is touching. Go man
That was. I was intestine me out and push it. As always, has always has to be right in the earlier. After all the movies about job. Every right, It's me I'm living my childhood dream of a second guitar behind shout bury you never knew what a pain in the ass that would be. I guess I tell you at the same time, there is a funny guy just what material near one minute out and the need to suffer half an hour, yeah, and you come back in a babe. contact either. What would it take? I had also nothing. I know it is a great merging of read of or to work with and
I think my my best feet out of that was when I said the jug very Germany Jones so still around, because is to adjust, died that use the stones parents from the beginning. From the beginning I mean actually I consider the stones to be an spanned, really put it together. Really he ate porters together without him. We wouldn't of colleagues and and he only got to put in the east of being in the in the main line up, because who what light weapons are? Well, it wasn't good, looking enough, never strike the six was too many stew. Having the largest, how in the world said he. I understand, but we still need we recorded. It still is and for an age any became our roadie manager, road manager and everything
take care of everything. I say I think this, they ensure that considered ass his baby, and I in considering my dad, we better your relationship with the enemy s story made. You reach, I'm fine, John yeah, because the last thing that the issue of a television- and this was just before I die- don't forget case that Johnny Johnson is alive and playing in some Bush He said that he and within a year I am working with chopped very arising in my mind, untenable without Johnny Johnson is It's never gonna, be the same as I say, the chuck, in Germany around again then shot? No, you very dead. There were in town,
any chance of getting them together on this, the core and the next day there was Johnny, and then I realized I had the ban this. Yeah- and I realize I had the stuff actually made shocks, records and sound, so good and now he then he literally learned how to play those links from Johnny's piano playing. Their Johnny was first it's weird? When I watch a movie because I've been a fan years, my whole life, but sure I could. I necessarily understood You know how complex aided the rhythm of chuck barriers, and how you deconstructed that to get your shit, yeah a variation on the name, the check and I basically played the same- vision, the raw right, you know, is syncopation right. It's, and for that you need a drum
you can totally rely on an ambitious unfold Geneva Chalk once used, take up, dance, went away, yeah because it can rely on the job. They were just badge. He'd never met a right which is unfortunate in that respect. because, there's about to arrive, no doubt shot worked out the money in a brief case in a girl. I know that route guys, but that's it that's about it, is about right is it is a cop against the environment. The drama is to be right on for you to be able to like chop the beat around and move it more. I make it row ethnic, the role and the rock in that right and as Charlie I count on their man. I want yet ass. You know, I imagine you you. Nobody, I think, was abacha reissued a few.
they all once they re issued a get your eye as outright size. I citizen that shit in high school right and I put on the real issue. This moment my living room are my holy fuck Charlie or hold this holding the right now What did they do? Nothing like a good realisation like until I heard there that we master in the way you guys raw, fitting together. I was I Jesus Mass of solid, but I don't know why I think in the life situation I think make even said some about it, that they were now in it. That night, you have. You have memories of those nights in particular that you recorded when Euro stage now quite honest,
do you know that I'm not thinking about with being recorded yeah or film lives even worse, because people aware of the cameras on this, that we start a titan, no tightening up, I try and forget all about them. No, what's going on around me, we're just do it again. yeah. I saw you in San Diego. I went just now the first I got better than that. We had good shoe. It was a good show. It was great. I was nervous. I would refer you without. I love you. I love you. I love you. I am going to see in a long time. I saw you guys and eighty one imagines, where garden when yeah guess his private tat to you tour in three major Hawkins opened for some reason. I think James Brown was supposed to an end at some happen. How to what happened,
but he didn't like revenge. I don't know where we are describing Jake comes out. The buddhistic. Do you think you're, a fucking bandwidth, everyone s square garden like what's happening in an you. Guys came out, and I didn't I didn't go see because I don't like it was strange for me when Bill left with a strange review, absent I was furious. I just had a hitman, they said I love him so much. I can go that far Yang I'll just break your legs. No, this is a hard coal and equally tyre out. Yet It is in there also developed this fear of flying really. It was like driving to every game which is like you know. Sometimes they were so far by your right. eventually he decide areas his decision, the idea to court the day and you
hidden name, who? What are you gonna do right here? In the area of nineteen February wrapping around and The aim is adamant, any any in May it is a decision or maybe is right. I am right now and I can say is that whom I get down javelins yea as great with great it was the first time I've seen you guys. In a long time and like I said, I was nervous and senior thirty five years and man would have fun. can you sounded great, and I mean it, There were moments there were, you know there. Have we ve improved over Johnny good? I think we really guy you're good right now, you're going to take it up, but the experience of it was like. There were moments way where we're make was run in IRAN and back and forth. You ever
like like at the point where you guys right now. You know I mean more mature gentlemen. Your were more mature, the media moments where I hope he doesn't fall down. No, I never worry about. No man is so nimble, woman, crazy. I mean Charlie Is- and I always watchmaker encase. If when you get out right right or is that yet hearing the be right right all aim as drivers there are actually expert he's he's cross debate. We think it previously. I always like a safety net and it doesnt realize it. In China- and I always eyebrow guy, we gotta go, we can actually do the various lies with the job of a band is to support the front man we're here and now You got your cause out and when we talk before we talk a lot about the band and end your band and Andy banned, but
I have to assume that when you get started out beginning you you're, just a bunch of bodies. Right yeah just evolved into this room together by the music right. Who is the guy that you guys used to play with her played his club and when you start with the Alps corners I will get Alexis collects, is corner of the evening called there and he was like a blues impresario yea, a bow. A time probably had the blues. Neo down in Lorraine Interview wanted blues. You went to see Alexis is the only guy playing basic right. it was. I had several Davis's a great heart player. And the air was they were good Alexis wasn't the That good- and I remember Alexis one night It is making me up to a number of MECCA
am gonna, do roll over Beethoven Lex This made an eastern Asia from take I'll, get you a cottage strain and leave it to you if you took it yet now, I wanna play that rock and roll really. So is a real cures. But China, also appreciated rock n roll away? But I mean he knew that you couldn't you wouldn't be here addition allow others, whether down the new record United and to listen to her like a couple of times across our hearts, namely the record idea. So the first song, like I noticed like if you go away back. For that I mean, as theirs pre Jimmy Red doesn't dream. I was rather genes as rubber jobs because I noticed, like idiots Sybil, that rather like hell hands on my trail almost man's like it is just a piece like that you you can hear you breathing. You can hear every squeaky fingers in every pigtail, it's very
it's all very raw and organic, and then you just right. That's all. I gather that the river and note If, though, even if it's ok, it's almost like a bluish meditation I thought you know that I will be when we got all the tracks are gathered. Vigilant. Put that blues in matters will be the spot. the end and then there is like, went deep, awoke in the moon. the overture lizards, a subtle overtures in any book candidate with good night Irene, another blues, different style, more folk blues buddy, in both sides. He gets you got better. labelling, Robert and Robert, just it all area. I wanted a color classic American yeah folks
and the weird thing that happened is Tom. Waits sent me big book on lead belly. The just arrives right, just put it on the table. And at the same time, a few hours later in walks, my guitar meant here the Boatport. How are you going jack. I million years right, yeah, yeah yeah, since ninety ninety one then bring what guitar I mean, I am lost without building he decides, which guitar gonna play on sums that so much I trusted. You Watch him with this Tao strings, I'm looking at this book of lead barely a year Tom it suggests sent me and I'm looking at this twelve string, and I said I have no choice. I've been ordered, good night, Irene, yeah yeah? It is pretty hunting music, some stuff, her? Oh, yes,
Lead Valley was very deep and I found the original Eric you know, which are not sure. I know them yeah much Rancheria than right, because then it became you know you get the black and white minstrel singing. I mean right and it became like an american some people, the war, Is that what it was kind of a dirty sought, the real sure yeah so with like you, gotta guitar God, guy this guy Pierre, but like you, you pretty committed to like a handful guitars either for five that you play pretty much all time, yeah pretty much on when it comes down to work as watch out trying to figure out on stage, because I am about to tell you, because you were back one and now you're good but if I had it for having your on the cover, guitar player, but ya, think he had one that was altered. I remember at ETA the the rhythm pick up was.
Was regular, and then there was a hamburger now on the on the wheat. Picker reduce, grow Roma, redo, rewired yea. I may do play around with the take up of zero point. Fifty four, our time that with ice cream, one right here for years is to have them. Thus, in the hell out of what are you going to tell you, I guess you don't get a pale guy now I know paddled known straight in an area is enough to stand up straight loan poking around on values, just change the volume when you need an analysis in any of those facts that I need actually can be done from behind Piazza every need triangular. The area will deliver on this. I need to know where to put my feet, are you know I mean as tripping over those box at the just ties down near? I am What made you decide guess why Turkey before you
we're may be gonna do sticky things. You're gonna run every, but that died in one night and day. The recording of assigned a great so what made you the next night design? Now I went well we don't know, maybe better Lando ask on that, but now ages thought, and I think we all thought that in doing it, The whole thing once was enough and leaving here that has swept now was now getting at one end of the day: thou them Niger I just wonder, play and among those beautiful ones is. I got the blue sky, which is so slow and its varied in the hardest thing for a band is to keep a term slow tempo down. I mean everything tends to speed up so as to be in that.
Steve grab that was greater, is right here and our Jackson, the drama when in man are you guys didn't just don't even want to drop into that, also known as I think that there is a there's, you have it to be the greatest rock and roll band biggest rock and roll show you. How are you gonna? Do you know you gotta be big? you know me, you didn't you did Moonlight Mile which LEO for he hit those fucking know it sounds crazy. like playing that first, I shoulda. Going out on a limb here, make little bar room we got into is as beautiful reply and the great fire naval love and speaking Otis I was thinking about like his ear. He could lay back on that on a groove by, but it's I was thinking about. What did you think
after the satisfaction was hit in the he decided to cover it. There must be a big fuckin day, now put another crown on maybe you're. Right I mean for one of our sound to be covered by one of the greatest tsar, and these singers of old time was Irene. This time go to Heaven wherever because that was basically the cream on the radio dream and then a Risa did it, and I know where I can double Heaven: No, It is great to get that respect to respond reciprocating back from a after play black music. I mean why does can be found that group like to make that a soul song was somethin heart. It was,
just amazing that these people are respected. My so much would take due on allow songs, and then you play with on this record on the new record, did you the spoon or Oldham right furnaces. Play with a wreath of some of the big here right now to muzzle shawls salon, been amazing and work with that guy. You work with them before. First time. I've ever met spoon. I've known him. I feel like I've known him for years, because he's been on so many river as such Grand Parsons Furs pointed out spoon or Odin, some really that was nice, seventy one, if he knew it in a new country musical spoon of his basically a country, music player. That time I didn't even, They were still around and a couple of phone calls Steve. Jordan bless his heart. The man I work with and in Kosovo,
some me and produced it in a great drama test been playing with him. A long time on your eye was turned shoddy. What said to me in there that eighty five I say so. We need this. Lemme. Take I like high ages forever nation, whatever you want to call it. Charlie lot said it's gonna work with anybody else: steel, jaw, consumer, oh yeah, and I took him at his word. I listened a child. It has and as Stephen I started working out. No new Regis LIVE work together we fell into each other's arms and is a great friend of mine
It's beautiful man game it's nice to walk into a studio with a bunch of dude. You know and trust anyone we're gonna make something as though you are the winners came together. Even now in Lahti walked Chow I have never ever you play with that guy. I love that long time, great great player, great tat, simple, to go now and then- and this was the last record the Bobby Keys played on. unfortunately yeah. I'm sorry, you ask your friend Mandy. Thank you. Very much he's probably laughing his head off? We had no idea that was going to be his last record in Stockholm. We did it now Bobby. That's Mr Rock n roll. Yet Largest tax cannot larger between the two year. This year we have developed, Mr Rock and Roll He certainly live the life he suddenly
yeah yeah now that when when when, when you say that you ve been with around with that long, but you know ye, I guess at some point you realize that we're all living on borrowed time and he certainly don't waste any right right you got no John loose but not before you met, Graham though you were, you were in the country music, but do you think Parsons really blew your mind on it or what ashes and I met Graham and in London he was naturally with the birds at the time. They don't wait on the road earlier area. Stopped in London. I did a cobbler gigs and then they were destined to play South Africa and I I'm in the grand that now I went to see the show ways we gotta talking after and he said
this sort of feeling about South Africa, and I dont know I dont understand a donor. So Spain is a life is like another south on Yahoo. But even worse, is like you know, segregation isn't. Is it a pot hide and once he done, this is about at an eight the birds that day and stayed with me in London. Really you just let them go on their own on principle. The matter had spoken, beautiful we gave, a very very close friends, have had it. who called Turkish the as well as until the guy died, so young man ass another Nina, but you still be like it's interesting. Like this record, you know it's got all the stuff that you love on it. You know you ve got, you ve got your soul ballad. You know you got,
can't you musing ragged reggae was really good. Man I got I was like is like the ragged again in it, but you love it. was not. I've lived in Jamaica for many years, yet you know got that place anymore. You still haven't enough. It was at the time you got it. I didn't you have to get it. You can go home right that the task of legislative, because I got someone sent me that box that box said that he did with those guys in the cave or something with what was that well? The wingless Rastafarians does recordings you're crazy man like ours of, like you, I'm sorry like, unlike others, keep back he IKEA you're lucky there. You know, I'm just. That cannot be right has in the guise of wild men, and their luck,
because the nearly all of passed away since it's an ice box out great, it was a great experience and he was so is to catch. some of the last moment of this particular part of Jamaica and I and I managed it and they loved it we're great fun. I mean It cannot find me a in your life we want a Roman meant Zoe, In terms of being, the age read now in insert this type of songwriting you doing Khazars a cup was on January go on a new record like amnesia and nothing on me. My gratitude.
what sort of liking celebrations of being still alive and aware of what I guess there's nothing on is basically about, a busted right right in and it wasn't all listen thou records. I realise that the cops crop up, A lot in this record go rubbed blind eye. Oh that's right! We may, You maybe you do you know it anymore, you're, good, there's no warrants! You sat silent let's talk about guitar, whereas from Antlike as I'd say you asked Brian and then, if you bring making any toward, would make a bit Mc Taylor. Now I guess my question. If I'm really gonna focus it just at a mile curiosity, because there are some shift, where were we you guys sort of invented, modern, rock and roll. There was some some some shift. We hope I'll, be right in the middle right after Satanic Kanak Majesty's where
entire sound and the groove became what The modern stones. Are we waiting for what happened disorder, make that happen. Was it It was a moment we are like this is where it's at I mean the difference between how you cover, like you'll love in vain or what you did with the booze in country, music, on unleaded bleed and an beggars in. Exile like it, it's just that that became the template for Rock n roll from, point forward in one in a way I can put this in two words Jimmy Miller producer younger.
How did he had backed out here? What did he say were after satanic Majesty's were we were Mick and I were like them. We have to refocus Lenin, though, in that was imagining, since there was such a preference society majesty's well, I guess her all on acid riding high and we just sure, as everything oh they're gone to India Area, he had got up with a duty. I waited nowhere to refocus like thither and at other times thinks that was the end of you. Keep up with the beat you like, we gotta do our shit, yeah arena. I couldn't go right in here, then I realize that they are the best. the boys themselves outpaced themselves and re Laden. They will. Let me go
What they were they were globally. There was a legion wanting to do what it can do. You know about noon, although no one, and so they started, I anybody else. Play around that sixty seven thy severely sixty seven right those years, it's crazy when those ls deal rising but if you read it I guess it I had a couple: a good dribs and governor bear arms. Just like anything else right That is not something that I'd wake up in the morning and others. I must have tat ever. I did then, when you going to do for the next three days, this crazy. It was interesting- and I didn't say I read- I mean I know regret any of it, but it is an experiment. Riah,
but how do I think in a way colors shook make an eye up. Yes, we have by now we really got to tighten up in. This is where we got beggars. Banquet and- and I gotta say the Jimmy Miller was the key in in tightening the band of reform sing senselessly. What seems like you guys, like you, said about doing now. You know yeah you want me to do it about smoke at first cigarette ten years, would Keith Richard. I don't know why. I wouldn't do that thanks. I our bad inflows night. You dad that sounds. So not you you're, not a bad influence. so but in terms of of because when you talk- yeah. I got the blues.
Here they met laid back thing. I'm somebody relaxed the band if it was Jimmy Miller, how did he do that necessarily you know I mean get you into that group is pretty different aftermath to Vulcan beggars, it was, I think, this. A cherry emerges is, I think, that reach the end about tat. I ve been working three hundred fifty days a year after, like four years ago. Did you go, and you have occasion to cushion about if want, and everyone on the road we're in the studio. I didn't you. usually even at that age. You know we're pretty much water. selves out the year between that and bringing back and getting beggars Banco together was.
They re energizing get some rest ray rising and refocusing, and, as I said, to me, I was Jimmy Miller that guy put the lens right. In the end, the focus sooner as your aims of drama. He was rich sense of sound and they loved the band right on me and he brought out the best elements and it really Brian die in the middle of that somewhere around the bird who is it a guy, you loved. I already knew brilliant, but annoying. Is that what you're saying brilliant and in Yes, the alone annoying
my mother and I would be in Chicago play a game, and ah I get asked smiles and Ngos I gotta pray three weeks in the MID west. Without another guitar player, I guess so guys, gonna girls, your screaming, like I mean I'm trying to cover all day and then coming now that it was out of the hospital the next day and hanging around screwing group. Isn't it scarcely where we need a little more than a k, a guitar. We got a job job here in a band where I come from there I mean the Davis, it became a track and then when we tell our comes in, does all different kinds of tar playwright. I mean It's really interesting, be the difference when you know like Taylor and would like Miss Taylor was like he was.
big part of the sound for a cup worms was already a brilliant job. Player yeah how's he doing. as for the last, I saw Miss doing all right, they're bit chubby, that's his approval. Right here, a place great. And we will work together, Africa. yes China I mean to me make a toddler but on my own. I re Emily doesnt interests me my interest is playing off of the other guy all right. You, together, because two guitars can sound like an orchestra rival the right way of each other. That's really you re, I was running an ice is Mitya, call it the ancient form of weaving
right at the idea. Is that way you don't know whose plainly displaying rhythm? That's what you did, which is true, and you may Taylor was a kind of his own. Do right, yeah, I had to readjust for that year and at that say return. I just got into the five string things Ives rearranging myself. Where'd, you are net I tell you what right good. It was the first cap that I learned from now. I saw a playing yeah. I didn't know it because he wouldn't teach you can see. We regret I placed his heart still finding out man. Do that, because is how different the to me. Re interested me in playing guitar. Could I urge pretty much of the end of the night possibilities. Unjust straight churning
right, I'm not gonna, be Charlie Christian reacting. Thank you said, and I don't wanna be right arena that when I got to the open, Jeez out enough really research. It yeah, and apply a minor cord with open gene is a new all of these resonating notes the area and drone here. Yet fascinating still do in us.
