"When I was first asked to play bass with KEANE it was for a War Child show at Brixton Academy. I told Adam, their manager, "Sure I can play bass! Yes of course I own a bass and amp!" I then immediately phoned someone who really did play the bass and asked if I could borrow their gear.
The blag got a lot more frightening when i walked out on stage and started the intro to UNDER PRESSURE. Somehow I got away with it. SUCKERS! (I still can’t play it properly after six years!)”— Jesse Quin, The Best of Keane Book
