Ik dacht, ik zeg 't nog maar even...
You always had a broad palette of influences: Krautrock, Hawkwind, dub, Van der Graaf Generator, Captain Beefheart, even your parents’ record collection with their Celtic influence was in there somewhere. It wasn’t stuff from Top Of The Pops or even The Old Grey Whistle Test. Where were you finding all this?
Well, that would be there, and you’d see it, and know it was in existence, but for me, from quite an early age, record stores thrilled me, just like book stores did, and libraries. So whatever jobs I had I’d be saving up and rushing out in my spare time or at the weekends, Saturday afternoons usually, and just raid record stores. It was a very good hobby of mine and because I like art too, I was attracted to just the covers of records, many times. Things like [forgotten early 70s prog band] Paladin come to mind there. The man who did that artwork [Roger Dean] also did the Yes albums, but I knew them and friends had them and there was just no need for me to go off into that angle.
JR gaat hier mee met de interviewer die stelt dat Krautrock (en Van Der Graaf, en Dub, en Hawkwind, en Beefheart) een invloed was op JR.
UIteraaaaaard geen sluitend bewijs hoor. Ik zou het niet durven beweren.
Maar toch maar even gepost, hier.
Zou het kunnen, dat het begrip 'invloed' door JR, de interviewer, de makers van JR's wikipedia, de makers van vele andere wikipediapagina's, mij, frob, en nog wat anderen op dezelfde manier wordt ingevuld?
Too Freud to live, too Jung to die.
