Mr. Maffay, can a real rock ‘n’ roller just retire? Actually not. Rock ‘n’ Roll is energy, dynamism, curiosity. The big sandbox where you can play, no matter how old you are. When I think about what went on behind that door three days ago…

What? Our band played together for the first time in nine months. It started at nine in the morning and we left the studio at half past one in the morning. I was completely screwed. But I think it’s brilliant to finish 14 hours and then be really exhausted. The next morning I got in the car, turned the speakers up to full volume and watched the stuff. Was really good. Very raw, very real.
