Working together with Kenny and Rab on this album was a real joy. The studio is a place for being creative and when the chemistry is right the creativity will flow. From the moment we recorded the first song together we knew that the energy was there, the ideas came easily and best of all, putting this album together has been great fun from start to finish. What you hear is spontaneous, no spending hours getting the right sound out of the snare, no 10 takes to get the guitar solo right and after getting the level right the vocals would generally go down first take. There are many positive ways to describe ‘Songs of our lives’ good songs, good ideas and unlimited imagination. This was about great friends who really enjoy working together. I am delighted with my involvement and look forward to our next project.
