Extra, Extra! REED All About It!
Live For Live Music sat down with Reed for a discussion about the forthcoming album Beathoven & the Electric Beethoven project.
"If there’s one thing I’ve learned from studying the masters of every genre is that the greats all learned through osmosis and apprenticeship, not through lessons or school. Beethoven didn’t take lessons, he didn’t go to music school. Neither did Jimi Hendrix. Neither did Louis Armstrong. Neither did John Lennon. Neither did Thelonious Monk. Neither did Miles Davis. Neither did Thom Yorke. These people, they did study hard, but they studied themselves. Most importantly, they studied who they were around. Their context and their audience."
