"When I was growing up in England, pop music was this incredible mixture: You could hear Perry Como and the Rolling Stones, Connie Francis next to the Pretty Things, all on one radio station. You hated some things, but you were confronted with all this stuff. So I was more fortunate than kids listening to the radio now, because what happens now is they turn on a radio station and hear one kind of music all day."
