Personal Quote:

[in 1984] In the States obviously we're playing big places all the time, between 10 and 20 thousand people, and in order to look like something in those kind of size halls you've got to put on some kind of a show, and a lot of equipment, and it does cost a lot to carry it around. See more »


He spent six months writing 18 pieces of music for the film 2010 (1984) before getting sacked. See more »
