Music is an emotional experience, and that is what imprints itself on the soul. And I think for me, any great art is art which communicates human emotion.
When you play music with someone who has a heart rather than playing with someone who is just doing it for money or is cynical it makes all the difference.
I feel with ELP that I wasn't making the most of my life and I wasn't making the most of my creativity. I was marking time. I don't want to do that. Life is to short.
Most of my career has been about standing on a stage performing music to an audience, and once the show is over, they go home and I go on to the next show.
