In aanloop naar het optreden op Glastonbury vanavond heeft The Telegraph een interview met Pete. Hij praat o.a. over “Classic Quadrophenia”.
“As a composer, I feel so happy about being able to do this while I’m still in my shoes. I had this vision of myself on my death bed thinking, ‘Why the f— didn’t I get this stuff written down?’ Because one day people will get this…” He holds up the Quadrophenia vinyl album “and they won’t have a machine to play it.” He laughs loudly.
“The symphony orchestra has lasted a long time. I set out to create a folio because I knew that if Rachel did a great orchestration and I dropped dead, within two weeks it would be my memorial service.”
