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.
I have very interesting hobbies like archeology and photography.
There are things that I am very proud of and there are things that you are not so proud of. But I think that applies to any musician.
I had a wonderful time with the Stones but after 31 years, I thought it was time to move on.
Everything had to be done in-between Stones time.
I don't make any money.
You're always frustrated, you don't have the chance to do a song on the album, like the Beatles did with Ringo and George, or like Led Zeppelin, where everybody was given a chance to contribute. There never is a chance with the Stones.
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 always got great respect as a bass player.
I love to play smaller crowds with the Rhythm Kings.
I open events for museums and I do charity work and photography.
I was listening to music long before rock 'n roll.
I always say that I am very proud of the work that I did with the Rolling Stones and that I am also proud of what I have done with the Rhythm Kings.
I am much more my own man than I was when I was with the Stones.
I always listen to a lot of different music when I am working on a project.
