Roger Andrew Taylor Quotes


26 Roger Andrew Taylor quotes:



"I was burned out. I think I was just exhausted. It was a very intense five years. We didn't stop. It was constant touring, constant writing, recording."
"At some of the venues, the audience was so loud we could hardly hear what was happening on stage, which kind of threw us back to 1983, when we had very similar reactions on a much bigger scale."
"Everybody was on the same page. Nobody has really gone out there on a different musical journey. When we got back together again, we all wanted to do the same kind of music."
"As Andy says, being in this band in the early 1980s made you feel like you were part of a pizza. We were always one of the band, one of Duran Duran, or one of the Taylors."
"I guess when we were up against it, we knew this album was going to be compared to all the classic early material, because it was going back to the original five."
"I like Target. I like the ones in the Midwest, personally. We don't really have those in England yet."
"I lived a normal life for a number of years. I had kids. I lived up on a farm in Gloucestershire in rural England, and just kind of got back to reality again."
"I slowly started to drift back into music again. I finally got the call from John... about getting the band back together again. It was so out of the blue. I almost thought that the moment had passed."

"It was over a three-year period that we recorded this album. Everything sounded very different by the time we finished the album."
"It's a complete collaboration. We just set up our instruments in a room and plug in, much as The Beatles would have done 30 years ago."
"It's a nonstop schedule, really. I had lost myself somewhere."
"It's amazing to see places like Madison Square Garden on the schedule again."
"Nick and Simon had come to a natural end of their working relationship with Warren, which obviously opened the door for a reunion of the original five."
"Some people even went off to form another band, Power Station."
"That's incredible, if you think of five people who have all gone off in different directions in their lives and come back together again."
"Sometimes the problem is not the people in the band, but the people around the band."
"We used Pro Tools, a music system, to record the album. You can just keep putting stuff on and taking stuff off and re-recording."
