Back Door Quotes
The first really important thing I did was with Alexis Korner. I started to play with him in 1969 and I was associated with him right until he died. The last three years he was alive we did a duo together, which was a lot of fun. Then the formation of Back Door started when I was doing a summer show in Bournemouth playing all sorts of acts with saxophonist Ron Asprey. We got bored with the show so we just used to go in with the bass and alto sax and just played.
Guitar was the first. The first thing I had really was a kind of ukulele that I'd got .... for Christmas I think it was. I was always into music. I think what got me into playing was seeing Haley and the Comets in "Rock Around the Clock". All that stuff when I was ten or eleven, in 1955, '56, really young.
