Many artists will tell you about the gloom of being inflicted with creative block? But how many like me suffer an equally debilitating affliction which I suppose could be regarded as the polar opposite. CREATIVE OVERDRIVE! I only have to look at an instrument, read an article or watch a programme and the creative muses come banging on my bruised head. I'm like one of these entertainers who try to keep multiple spinning plates on sticks. I have at least 30 songs on the go. My pending tray reaches the ceiling. Ah well, such is life... Why did we climb Everest? "...Because it was there."
