At a performance on OffMenu with Ed Gamble and James AcasterQuinn discussed the sequence, with the podcast hosts asking if he performed the solo himself.
“I’ll be completely honest with you, most of it is me and I do the music hands to make music,” Quinn said.
“The difficult music – the solo – these are not my hands. It’s kinda my hands; they’re a bit mysterious hands.”
When asked about the moment he swings the guitar behind him as he prepares to play the solo, Quinn confirms that it is in fact a “real guitar” and not a styrofoam one.
“I can’t remember how many takes [it took]; not that many,” he said of the moment. When asked if he ever dropped the guitar, Quinn added, “We drilled the strap into the guitar to avoid that problem.”
