20 years and still standing, standing on the edge, on the point of no return. So where to next, when the end to everything is so inevitable? None of us are dead, which has surprised us more than it has you, especially at the end of 2016, a year that swallowed us musicians whole.
It’s been 20 years since we released our first baby – Exile On Coldharbour Lane and we’ve just delivered our 13th album – Blues.
It’s no secret that we have tempted dark fate to the point where it has lost its comedic value. We have hurt so many, and lost so much. As the cold light of day hits us in the bathroom window, the reflection is enough to make us recoil under the sheets, until we are cloaked by soft night again. Has anything been gained? We’ve always had bad skin. And so we hang together by a cruel thread whose length we all miscalculated, wondering - why us? We’ve chased more pipes than dreams.
