Quotes by Ken Hensley
THE GODS was my first professional band and I learned a lot during that time. It was very cool playing with so many great musicians as it helped me to learn.— Ken Hensley
I have never learned to read or write music so I am not a virtuoso musician like the others you mentioned. I am completely unable to play like them because I never learned classical music, I just developed my own crazy style!— Ken Hensley
It is hard to understand addiction unless you have experienced it.— Ken Hensley
When I left HEEP I didn’t know what I wanted! It took me a long time to adjust to life away from the band and the only thing I knew was that I didn’t want to repeat my mistakes!— Ken Hensley
I didn’t know that you were supposed to tune the guitar to an open chord, and I learned to play slide with a normal tuning. I think it’s a little more melodic that way and doesn’t sound so bluesy. Of course, if I could play like David Lindley or Ry Cooder, I’d be a happy man!— Ken Hensley
