I have always been open-minded when it comes to different musical genres and I am a personal friend of many of the great rock and pop artists of our time such as Mick Jagger, Rod Stewart, and Paul McCartney. Once again I have been given the privilege to pass on my experience and input to new talent. Richard Maxwell represents new ideas and a new approach to the classic Rock genre.
