"I kept my eye on multi-processors and I tried [them as they got better through the years]. When the GT-5 came out, I happened to be going out with The Healers, and [it was] really useful for me, particularly as I’m in the position of having to reproduce a lot of different sounds. My audience expects me to sound like my records, [and] as a singer I don’t want to be looking down at my feet every 16 bars or every time I go into a chorus or verse. The GT-5 did two things for me: it made it so that I could change sounds and reproduce some of the things that were going on in my records, but with just hitting one pedal. I still wasn’t entirely there with the sound of it, but I got there. I did a lot of interesting things, and being able to change ring modulation, for example, or dial in very precise delays and all of that, which for someone like me was really fun."more

(1999): "So live, I use a BOSS GT5, but I threw away the presets and started again. Y’know, I wanted the flanger before the phaser; stuff like that. One of the great things about the GT5 is that you can put anything in any order at any time. The amp simulations are brilliant, except now we have the new Mesa/Boogie Formula preamp, so I can get proper clean or proper dirty sounds." "The GT5 does the preamp, distortion and effects thing, and that’s split off into two Mesa/Boogie power amps;"more
