Uriah Heep: New Interview With Mick Box

Jeb Wright of Classic Rock Revisited recently caught up with Uriah Heep's Mick Box. An excerpt from their chat follows:

Jeb: Do you ever find inspiration for music by reflecting back on the past accomplishments, and tragedies, that Heep has endured?

Mick: "I have done that in the past with 'Between Two Worlds', which was about trying to find a space between the real world, and the other world, where I could meet David (Byron) and Gary (Thain) and see them for a short time to see how they were doing, and to let them know I am keeping alive the musical legacy that they left on earth."

Jeb: A lot of classic bands are faced with realties that the end is closer than ever before. What will be the final straw for Uriah Heep and Mick Box?

Mick: "As long as we enjoy what we do, and we have our health, there is no need to stop. I think you only retire when there is no audience for you to play to. Luckily, for Heep, we have an audience in 53 countries. We have a very special relationship with our fans, and we appreciate their support more than you can imagine."
