We handpicked Ken Bruce's best quotes for you:
The Queen canon - there's nothing very reflective in it really, there are no great thoughtful, deep, meaningful songs.
[on Peter Gabriel] He's a great talent.
A lot of classical music bleeds into pop music. "Roll Over Beethoven" is a classic example. But it's been seen as being an exclusive sort of thing.
[on Johnny Marr] I think he's fantastic.
[on "Mercy Street" by Peter Gabriel] It's a fine song.
