I first met Björk when she was a member of Exodus. She was a very strong personality, singer and performer. She was greater than the music. No, I would never say that she was crazy, she was more a nice human being. She always had a voice that you would recognise. When you see footage from the early period, you really notice that skill of hers, as there are other vocalists to compare her to. She’s always been a part of a group of people that are very creative...
