“I’m reminded once again that it’s not enough to be brilliant. You need that lucky break that crosses you over to the mainstream punters. And a shed load of marketing money. . . It happened to Marillion before I met them and we’ve managed to maintain a hard-core big enough to make it possible for us to function at a certain level. It’s like getting an enormous rock to roll. Once it’s rolling you can keep it going easier than the effort it took to get it started. So rockn’rolls’s not such a bad name for it. But it could have been called ‘momentum’ instead. Doesn’t have the same ring about it though. . . (and anything derived from Latin is very unrock n’roll.)”
