I know, but… you don’t understand these things when you’re younger. I didn’t understand it and he didn’t and… (Sigh) There’s no substitute for experience. I don’t think anyone likes to be pushed around. But the whole thing with Ritchie was that he was the same way not just with me but with everybody. He was the same with musicians in RAINBOW. He has a dominant tendency and that’s his character. He wants to dominate the situation. That’s why our relationship never really bore any fruit apart from the early days. As I said, you can lead me around my nose, I mean, you can even offer me carrots and I’ll do anything for you. But I just don’t want be pushed around. I think that’s human nature, you know.
