CALUM: To be a musician is a combination of stupidity and obsessiveness. I started playing from about seven. From about 11 to 18 I did nothing else but play. KEITH: Like the fame or success is just a by-product of what they do, if they do it well. For me, it’s just about getting better at what you’re doing. STEVE: My parents never said, ‘You need to get a proper job or further your education.’ My dad wanted me to be a rock drummer! I’m not doing it for him, but I am doing it because he was supportive, and I was very lucky like that.
“I’ve spent the last four or five years working on concept albums, and now I’m ready to write a new album. I’ve started writing for it, and it started with a folk feel, but has developed more into a singer-songwriter, with kind of a rock feel to it. I think that’s what happens with albums, they change; you start writing something but later it ends up being something else.”
