I always got great respect as a bass player.
With the Rhythm Kings, I can involve myself in arranging and producing the music as well as the choice of songs.
If you are any competent musician, if you have creative ideas, ideas of songs, of arrangements, in a band like the Stones, where these 2 people do all the things, there is no freedom.
I have very interesting hobbies like archeology and photography.
But why is it that in music, anything more than 5 years old - apart from a few hits - is never played on radio to the young public?
I'm always shy in front of an audience, so I'm always at the back, in the shadows, just doing it. I don't like the front, the adulation.
