“I’ve done the whole thing of trying to be what people want me to be, and in the end I just thought I’ve had enough of this. The songs I’ve written now, some of them sound like Johnny Cash and some of them like 50s rock’n’roll – but they’re what I wanted to write...
the funny thing is, the more honest I am the better people like it."
Robert Vincent has been described as a Mersey Van Morrision or a Scouse Springsteen.
He says "I'm just me"
This type of simple honesty is what caused (then) Editor of Q Magazine, Andrew Harrison to say:
"I didn’t really want to be rich. I just never, ever wanted to do anything else but music. It’s been hard work getting here but I’ve never, ever wanted to pack it in. I know what I’m here for – to do this. It’s always been music for me.
One hundred per cent.”
