Thought For The Day #7



"Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band" is one of the most important steps in our career. It had to be just right. We tried and I think succeeded in achieving what we set out to do. If we hadn’t, then it wouldn’t be out now.

"How can we tour like we used to? We can’t...We could send out four waxwork dummies of ourselves and let them stand on stage and probably make another million quid, but we don’t want it. How can we tour when we’re making stuff like we did on the last album? We can only do what we’re doing. We’ve toured. That was then. If we do another tour we’d probably use London for one big happening and we’d have us and the Stones and the Who and everybody else on it. Unless that happens, forget it, man.

"I don’t want to be a moptop. For those who want moptops, the Monkees are right up there, man."
