“I was thinking today that you and I have the same problem. Having once given in to popular taste, we’re stuck with the reputation for the rest of our lives I’ve worked with the greatest American directors, but all the public ever remembers me for is ‘Mr Q’, a dickhead of a metallic robot. On top of that, I had to wear ninety kilos of armour plating. You couldn’t even see my face! Every thirty minutes someone reminds me that I played ‘Mr Q’ and they remind you that you wrote those ‘Simple Songs’. They forget that you composed ‘The Black Prism’, ‘The Life of Hadrian’ and all the rest. – Jimmy Tree
