Danish music magazine Gaffa.dk has an interview with my other hero:
What things that you know today would you have liked to know then (1984) ?
Jeg ville gerne have vidst, at det går over. Alting går over. Det er utrolig vigtigt at vide. Desværre har det gode det også med at gå over. Men den glade nyhed er, at det jo kun går over, for at der skal komme noget nyt. At det forholder sig sådan, ville jeg egentlig godt have vidst. Det ville have sparet mig mange søvnløse nætter.
Seeing as most of you don’t understand Danish, I did a pathetic attempt to translate it:
I would have liked to know that it passes. Everything passes. That is really important to know. Unfortunately the good things don’t last forever either. But the good news is that things only pass because something new is waiting to take over. That things work like this, that’s something I would really have liked to know. It would have saved me from many sleepless nights.
I kind of cling on to his words at the moment, as he is right, everything passes and new things will arrive at the horizon.
He is a very funny, inspirational and intelligent man (and yes he is tall and has lanky legs too), and I look very much forward to see them play in Shepherds Bush Empire in London in November.
Anything you would have liked to know in 1984 that you know today?
