Afgelopen vrijdag is “Quadrophenia: Live In London” in diverse formaten uitgebracht. Esquire heeft een interview met Roger over de totstandkoming van deze DVD/CD/Blu-Ray. Daarnaast een clip uit de DVD, van “Sea And Sand”.
“I hate the way modern concerts are filmed. I don’t know anyone who runs across a hall at 35 miles per hour while they’re looking at the stage, and that’s how everything seems to be filmed these days. I want to watch an artist work. I want to watch their eyes. I want to watch their performance. So that’s what I set out to do with this project and I think we’ve accomplished that“, aldus Roger.
“When Pete is playing the guitar I wanted it to show him playing the guitar, as intimately as possible. Or when I’m singing, I wanted it to show me singing so that it felt like you were there watching me and I was performing for you“.
