*Rock 'n' roll doesn't have to be perfect but it has to be fun because that's what rock 'n' roll is all about. Having Fun. Don't take it too seriously but enjoy it and let yourself get carried away by it. Some call it art, some call it garbage but you know what it means to you when your foot instantly starts thumping uncontrollably. Like the great audio pioneer and record producer Joe Meek once wisely said; if it sounds right, it is right. I like that philosophy.
