Bobby Gillespie Select Magazine Mixtape February 1992 # 13 The Heartbreakers

"The greatest rock’n’roll guitarist ever!" he beams, bouncing on the edge of his seat. "Thunders is one of my all-time heroes. He always looked great, he always dressed well, and, even up to the time he died, he was always an outsider. He never gave in to society. 

"And that’s prime Heartbreakers rock’n’roll. It’s a right cool, sleazy song. (He sings) ‘Pirate love is what I’m wanted for, pirate love is what I’m looking for’ (gets up on his feet). That’s what rock’n’roll should sound like! Really electric and exciting and sexy. It’s got a really good strut to it."
