"David loved [rockers], but he couldn't do it. But he could do something else. His genius lay in other areas y'know. To David it was a role. To Mick [Ronson] it was real. Not that Mick was really a rock 'n' roll guitar player in the tried and true tradition, but I like something a little more classy, which he was, he was so classy as a player. All these people running up and down fretboards, he was just playing - same as his piano playing - simple and creative. Beautiful."
