VLP: Had there been any sign his health was bad?
"I knew he’d had heart flutters for a few years, he used to tell me about them, he couldn’t lay flat on a bed because he’d get heart palpitations, so he used to sleep sitting up. You know, musicians don’t live as long as other people. Not always.”
VLP: Did you already know Raven before he joined?
“Sure, he was good friends with Youth,”
VLP: So what will Killing Joke’s next move be?
“Well, definitely two new recordings for us to do, and concerts. There’s a big demand for the original line-up, but that wouldn’t really play the later records so I’m gonna end up with two Killing Jokes! Benny, Geordie and me for one, and Youth and Big Paul and Geordie for another.
VLP: So Youth and Big Paul are definitely up for it then?
"Yeah, they want to do it. I’m aiming for the film, the book, and intense touring for our 30th anniversary, to raise money for Paul’s children."
Benny = Ben Calvert (KILLING JOKE)
