Apparently, he’s been recruited to play some gigs, right?
Yeah, he’s a top musician man. He’s not going to be playing on their album. Just live. But we’ll see how it goes, you know what I mean? Jeff’s an ambitious kid. He’s only 24 and he’s a fully-fledged musician, but he might at some point go – ‘you know what? I want to go do my own thing’, but we need a bass player and he looks cool. And he can play bass.
When you were putting the new band together, did you just pick up the phone and call Jeff? Or was it an open audition?
I just picked the phone up. I just rang Jeff and I said, what are you doin’? And he said nothin’. Do you wanna come down and have a little rehearsal with us, and within 2 songs of them jammin’, with Chris Sharrock and everyone, we just went down to the pub after that. We said right, you’re it coz you’re cool. We weren’t gonna over cook it or freak the lad out and go play this song, play that song. You know what I mean? He didn’t jump around, he looked cool, he played his bass and that was it.
I’m not gonna waste my time or loads of kids’ time gettin’ people in and out and holdin’ auditions and all that. I’m not like that. It was all there straight away, you look cool, you got the gig man.
