Hendrix was a perfect guitarist. And that's all I wanted to do as a kid. Play a guitar properly and jump around.
The only work I've done the last two years is interviews. I'm very good at it.
Living in Cambridge, with nature and everything, it's so clean.
If I'd stayed at college I would have become a teacher.
I've just had an operation, but nothing too serious.
I'd like to be rich. I'd like a lot of money to put into my physicals and to buy food for all my friends.
I do tend to take lines from other lines I like, and then write around them.
Getting used to the studio and everything was fun, we freaked about alot. I was working very hard then.
Fairy-tales are nice.
I like songs that are simple.
It's rather difficult to think of anybody being really interested in me.
Mostly, I just waste my time.
When we parted I had written everything for the group. My leaving sort of evened things out within the group.
It's always been too slow for me. Playing. The pace of things. I'm a fast sprinter. The trouble was, after playing in the group for a few months, I couldn't reach that point.
I wasn't always this introverted.
I never felt so close to a guitar as that silver one with mirrors that I used on stage all the time.
I don't really read a lot. Maybe I should.
I think of me being a painter eventually.
I thought 'Arnold Layne' was a nice name and fitted well into the music I had already composed. Then I thought, 'Arnold must have a hobby,' and it went from there.
A lot of people want to make films and do photography and things, but I'm quite happy doing what I'm doing.
I think it's good if a song has more than one meaning. Maybe that kind of song can reach far more people.
I think young people should have a lot of fun. But I never seem to have any.
I'm treading the backward path. Mostly, I just waste my time.
I'm sorry I can't speak very coherently.
I'm full of dust and guitars.
Have you seen the roses? There's a whole lot of colours.
'Arnold Layne' just happens to dig dressing up in women's clothing. A lot of people do - so let's face up to reality.
I don't think I'm easy to talk about. I've got a very irregular head. And I'm not anything that you think I am anyway.
I'm disappearing, avoiding most things.
