When asked about working with Brett again he went on his “not living in the past” and “it’s not his cup of tea” and “the only time he thinks about it is when he has to answer the question in the forum” and said something about those people can just go “curl up with their old Suede records” .
“I can handle things, I’m smart. Not dumb like everyone says. I’m smart & I want respect!!”
“One of the most poignant thing he’s ever said” recalls Anderson “is he thinks of himself as a singer who can’t sing. He speaks through his guitar, pretty much. He definitely co-stars with me on the song. He astounds us with what he can play.”……
