Wow Taran, this is such a superb interview I can't thank you enough for making it available to us. From Graeme's personal impressions of each album, to his own and the band's history, to how drumming changed from the 60s to the 80s and all the technical stuff, which, as Sal mentioned, goes way over my head, this interview is one of the best I've seen from any of the band members. Graeme is such an engaging personality and I love his down-to-earth style when he is interviewed. Add to that all the detail about recording their music, how they worked together, what it was like to go solo and all the dynamics between the band members. So many things I never knew, like "Muddy Boots" being a play on "Moody Blues" and "Kick Off Your Muddy Boots" meaning pushing them aside to create solo work.
Many thanks for this fabulous read!
Swindon Sal wrote:I think it was Graeme, in another interview, who said that in their early days the band was on a multi-act gig with Sonny Boy Williamson, an American R&B singer who was often drunk on stage. He could never remember the band's name and ended up calling them the "muddy boots." So as a joke among the guys, they often referred to themselves as the 'muddy boots.'
