“When we went to record our third album, we had made it. We were a hit group, we were into going out on tour. I went off to Ireland, rented a house and wrote about 20 songs, some good, some bad, some indifferent. Andy and Stewart each wrote a batch too, because, I guess, we'd all realised that the real money was in publishing. That was probably the seed of the end of the group."
