Some of the best things I ever recorded were 'mistakes'. For example, once I was recording electric guitar and came to a section where I had to step on a wah pedal. Anyway, I almost missed it, nearly fell over and completely lost the plot for a couple of seconds. I carried on playing, thinking 'what the heck' by this point. When I went back into the control room, everyone was like, 'wow, what was that you just did?', and I had no idea what they were talking about. When I listened back my 'fall' sounded incredible and, of course, we kept the whole take exactly as was, not least because the rest (where I'd thought 'what the heck') was the best I'd ever played the part! I'd say my life has been full of similar 'mistakes', and I wouldn't change a minute!
