Coldplay’s Roadie 42 on an EnoQuote

As has been widely reported, whilst recording the album, Brian Eno presented the band with a set of “commandments” in order that his influence could be felt even on the days when he had something more interesting to do.

One of them which sticks with me, read: “When something is good, it should be tortured mercilessly until it either becomes brilliant or dies”. It’s difficult to avoid the feeling that the current schedule might just have designed with this in mind.

I’m hoping that we’re becoming brilliant. I’m really not too keen on the alternative. – Roadie #42
