Charlie, about playing in Russia (1998): “Mick was trying to make us go there for years, saying, Oh, wouldn’t it be great to play there and all that, but as I grew up in the Cold War, I must admit I had these preconceptions. I thought it would be grey and dismal and snowing all the time. Everyone would look like Khruschev and all that silly stuff. Of course, when we finally went there, I looked out my window and and I could see Red Square and Basilica and it was absolutely fantastic. It was magical – like we were in Disneyland, but the real thing.”
