Rick Savage/Music Waves - May 2022 Interview Quotes
From Here To Eternity (Translated)
"'From Here To Eternity' is a song that I composed, and there is indeed an inspiration that comes from Led Zeppelin, but also from the Beatles and Queen. I wanted to write a song with a 1940s black and white film in mind about murders, gangsters, etc. (laughs). Visually, I saw it in my head."
Writing Songs/Lyrics (Translated)
"I always start writing a song with a riff. It's very easy for me. The hardest part is finishing the job. But writing lyrics, writing melodies, it's complicated. Joe finishes the job in general (laughs). On 'From Here To Eternity', I had lyric ideas that I sent to Joe, but he was like, "No, that's not good enough!" (Laughs). I said to him: "It's not bad!" But he told me: "It has to be better than not bad! We try to constantly improve what we do". The final version was much better than I imagined."
