    I totally remember reading that interview where he said that.

    There were two quotes enlarged to stand out on the page.

    "My album is better than Sgt. Pepper" and "I am a genius"

    ^ yeah, but he was telling the truth



    Come to think of it, Electric Wizard's "Dopethrone" is better than "Sgt Pepper's..." too


    Gotta hand it to those Brits!

    Great, great voice -- a little Jackie Wilson, a little Sam Cooke.... "Sign Your Name" was another killer track from Introducing.

    Check this tune out--it's the title track from his Vibrator album. Pretty funky, pretty rocking.

    PS--the dude was a Golden Gloves champion.

    Played on a track for a vocalist who did a version of "Sign Your Name" arranged to sound like a jazz standard. Interesting!

    "Symphony or Damn" is an absolute ripper of an album. Lots of breadth to it musically. He's a very talented musician/singer/songwriter & performer.

    He was also in INXS for about 20 minutes I think - played at the opening of the Sydney Olympic Stadium (at a soccer game actually) & was fantastic too.

    I've lost track of him over the last few years & need to check out what else he's done.

    I got his (I think) latest album called Terence Trent D'Arby's Wildcard. It's actually pretty good. Hardline According To... is a classic. Yeah, dude is a narcississt, but with a talent like his...

    After I showed our vintage strats and some other guitars, he pointed to a small black guitar with a scroll upper horn and no name on the headstock. He asked what it was, and I said nothing really. He seemed disappointed by my lack of enthusiasm. The guitar kind of looked like Prince's cloud guitar (the one that changed colours over the years). He looked at that guitar for a while.

    Thanks for reminding me. Had Introducing on vinyl many moons ago, have to pick up the CD again. Loved that record.
