" Keith Richards: ' For me what was important was getting into a recording studio for the first time. In those days the hardest thing to do was to record, and from a musician's point of view the most difficult thing to do was to break into a recording studio./ There was also a feeling of doom, that feeling that if you got a recording contract, a recording career lasted only two years.../ But we had not felt the power of the LP. Everything up to that time was predicated on a hit single. Every tune. Every six weeks you came out with a new hit. And by the time you threw three or four, nearly everyone goes down the tube.' Eric Clapton: ' We all felt part of something..it was about the music, not about being seen...The Stones played in Richmond every Sunday. They were playing Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry. The Beatles came down to see them. We were all individualists and watching the Stones, and these guys came in all wearing the same thing---black leather gear and the same haircut. We all had different styles of hair, and here's these guys--they all had to look alike. They all wore the same clothes. Someone was telling them what to wear: Brian Epstein. I felt contempt. They wanted the big pie and they knew how to get it....but if we sat down and talked we would discuss Chuck and Muddy Waters.' "
