An Overlooked Inbetween Schnippet

So it’s not so much challenging orthodoxies for the sake of it as wanting to have your say and give your version of the music that you lived with. This seems entirely natural; that if you’re writing these books, you’re going to want to have your voice. It’s surprising how few writers actually want to have their own take and how many are happy to regurgitate, just to show that they’ve read the accepted books and that they can regurgitate the accepted version.

RC: You say about not hearing their voice in there: my mate Gavin says quite simply that’s because most of them have got nothing to say. That’s his view: they’re catalogue freaks. They like listing things, they like knowing what order everything went in, but it’s like the price of everything and the value of nothing. That’s his view, not mine, but it is that: sometimes people don’t put anything of themselves into their work because they haven’t invested anything in there, you know.
