Eric, welcome to the programme. Thank you very much and good day, Alan. Good day to you as well. Thank you very much for joining me today on "I write the songs" My pleasure.
I remember them well. I was the lead guitarist with Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders until Wayne left for a solo career and I took over as lead vocal. And, um, we wrote a song which was highly based on a Beatles track, I should say nicked from a Beatles track, called Long Time Coming.
The way, the way I record nowadays, I will write as I record. You play it by ear? I play by ear. So I play on the piano, I mean, I know what the basic chords are physically but when I sit down to write, I just, I just fly by the seat of my pants and, and write something physically which is now of course stored in your computer I mean, have you always written in the same kind of, same procedure?
I had that riff, that was the first riff for the song on the album called Fred and Dis-Audrey. So I sat down, I had this riff and then the words and the melody formed.
The words happened after the riff. Could you show us? Just do a loop of the rhythm. To feel the song, yeah. Have you ever sat down and tried, you mentioned the Beatles song that you tried to sort of, um, to copy if you like, to re-write when you were in the Mindbenders?
I think Tom Robinson told me in an earlier "I write the songs" that he thought it was quite a good way of finding new songs was to liber, deliberately try and sort of rewrite a well known song and it would take you in a different direction.
You mean, a song from somebody else? Yeah, from somebody else, and try and write, you know, whatever And then the other trick was to use a set of lyrics that had already been written for another song. But I wanted to experiment, to see how far I could get just sitting there on my own, with the wonderful instruments that are available now, and using phenomenal samples you can get, oh, good brass and good strings and things like that.
So I can physically play the piano, so I could play anything that would be sampled from a keyboard. They do lots of the Jools Holland show and his albums, very, very professional. I can just say to myself "is that good enough, Eric?
You mentioned Dave Gilmour then. Was that, is that, er, intentional? I really envy that. Can you remember a lot of those 10cc guitar solos? It made a song, yeah.
I mean a lot of songs developed from a title like that. Are you always on the lookout for songs? If someone says a phrase do you "ding"? A Creme Stewart song yeah. You occasionally crossed over.
Was that just because of that car journey when you happened to hear that guy say that? Or more often than not, if one of us had an idea, you, we took it in the studio before we started to record, and this was as we were setting up to record a whole album.
