Classic Rock - Interview Quotes

Rick Savage

"The beginnings of the new record - we decided to just get together for one month. Some of us had got some songs written and some of us had got just ideas. And we just thought look, we're not gonna finish an album in a month but let's get together in the studio. See what comes out of it. But don't go beyond the month. Let's try and do as much as we can."

Rick Allen

"And it was great. We all got together and listened to everybody's ideas and then just picked them off one at a time. The ones that we wanted to go in and start working on. We all got in one room together and you know just laid them down as a band."

Rick Savage

"It was kind of done in stages. Of essentially three periods of a month long of building the album. And it was kind of nice to do that. There was no pressure. You could learn to live with the ideas as they were progressing. You weren't losing a perspective by having to day after day after month after month go through the same sort of songs. So it was a really nice sort of way of letting the album grow in a natural way."
