We should have gone over years before that.
by Roy Wood

We should have gone over years before that.
I always wanted to and I think most of the band did.
- Roy Wood

The best thing I ever heard was in the '60s.
I heard Jimi Hendrix play 'I Can Hear The Grass Grow' after a rehearsal,
and it was brilliant.
- Roy Wood

Of course, the wind sort of swept up and the music
was flying around in mid air and they were trying to play off it.
You had to be there.
It was quite funny.
- Roy Wood

We happened to be in the studio next door and I think
Noel Redding came around and said,
'Do you fancy having a sing on this?' We just went
and did it and it was great.
- Roy Wood

 

I think we were probably playing live for about 12

I've always been that way.
I'm not very good at reading music but I'm pretty quick at picking things up.
- Roy Wood

When we did a lot of that Motown stuff there were four of us on the front line.
When we started the evening we'd start from one end
of the band and just go along.
The lead singer would change all the time.
That's the first time that I actually managed to put it into a record.
- Roy Wood

I think it was probably down to the fact that we weren't
together personally as a band.
We weren't pulling in the same direction.
I always feel if you're having a good time in the studio
it actually comes across on the tape and that was a
bit of a miserable album for us.
- Roy Wood

I've always been a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde.
I always feel that you should keep singles as commercial
as possible so that the people can walk down the road and whistle a song.
But on the other hand on albums I think you can afford
to show people what you can do.
- Roy Wood

Even though we didn't actually record it as the Move
I had already written a song called 'Dear Elaine,'
which I subsequently put on the Boulders album.
I thought at the time that was probably the best song I'd written.
- Roy Wood

Unfortunately, most of the songs that I write I don't
write them with guitar in mind.
I just write it as a song and that was probably one
of the ones that left an opening for it.
The song's all right, I wouldn't choose to sing it now.
- Roy Wood

To me, 'Blackberry Way' stands up as a song that could be sung in any era,
really.
We do it with the new doing all sort of fanfare things
in it and it works really well.
It goes down great with audiences.
- Roy Wood

I named it that because more or less each person from
the band used to play in other bands and when we left
respective bands other members from those bands all sort of changed round.
It was a big sort of move thing.
I got it from that, I suppose.
- Roy Wood

Well, obviously I wanted it to sound as original as possible.
I suppose the influences that we had were probably
from the actual power point of view we wanted to be like the Who.
Vocally we wanted to be like the Beach Boys,
whatever was good at the time.
- Roy Wood

Laugh when you can,
apologize when you should,
and let go of what you can't change.
Life's too short to be anything... but happy.
- Anonymous

The truth. It is a beautiful and terrible thing,
and should be treated with caution.
- J. K. Rowling

If a man is called to be a street sweeper,
he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted,
or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry.
He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts
of heaven and earth will pause to say,
here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

Two things a man should never be angry at:
what he can help,
and what he cannot help.

by excusing others' shortcomings
and by harshly examining our own.

with a searching but at the same time a steady eye.

when you can reach out for something big.
