Q. What were your feelings on playing with Jerry Lee Lewis in 1989?
S. It was a great feeling to play with someone who was one of rock 'n' roll's founder, I thought the man was absolutely electric. It would depend on who I was asked to play with.
Q. Will you ever record a solo album? If so, who would be your ideal musicians you would work with?
S. I have never done a solo album but, if I did, it would be with folk and country musicians.
Q. Have the band ever considered producing themselves? The REL tapes do have a more "Big Country" sound than Peter Wolf's production of Peace In Our Time.
S. Sometimes we think about producing ourselves and I certainly think we could have done a better job on Peace In Our Time. I think the way the songs work 'live' are better than the album.
Q. Do you ever come across ex-Skids musicians? What are they doing now?
S. Yes, I see Richard Jobson quite often. He now does T.V. presenting and we get on very well together now. I sometimes see Bill Simpson who is an estate agent.
Q. What level of success are you hoping the new album will attain at the very least ?
S. Triple platinim, worldwide.
