"After a while I got fed up of it and I started to get quite a bit of pain in my shoulder, 'cause I think my posture wasn't right. You know, I'm not used to play an acoustic guitar sat on a stool, you know, for a long period of time. I'm used to standing with a Les Paul or a Flying V and I just missed that kind of power and that sustain and I was kind of glad when the acoustic gigs were over and it went back to being a proper rock band with guitars and drums."
