This is a quote from a larger text.
"Yeah, it's about participating in life rather than watching it. Television is so dictatorial, telling you what to do. It numbs you. And it doesn't require you to engage your imagination. You just lapse into a kind of narcosis, sitting and watching. I'm kind of advocating getting out and feeling life, experience the sun, feel its warmth on your skin, feel the rain. Go Sailing, etc. Hiking, jogging. Feel. Experience. Share with each other. All television gives you is somebody else's life to watch." - Metal_Treasure
Cozy Powell is a great and fast drummer (very underrated) - my favorite song is probably "A Light In The Black" by Rainbow.
Proof that he really did drum and drive madly:
1) He set a world record for the most drums (400) played in under one minute, live on television (BBC)
2) He raced for Hitachi on the UK saloon car circuit
3) This is the saddest part - he died in a car accident while driving at 104 mph (167 km/h) in bad weather, in 1998, at the age of 50.
R.I.P. cozy! - Metal_Treasure
Love this guy and his jokes!
