There was no room for Mick to dance onstage and he used to just wiggle his arse, which sort of made… I don’t know, but… it was lovely… I mean the Crawdaddy was like – it was nice to have a dance. It was nice to be there, and the Crawdaddy was always like that. That was really the best time for response of them all. I mean, it got a bit wearing, if you did the same set, and you knew at a certain time everything would explode. And sure enough it always did, and it always ended up in an absolute… gyrating… riot.”
