Keith Emerson

   "I was using a Hammond Organ, not perhaps as the people at Hammond would wish it to be used - producing different kinds of feedback and other things. I came up with quite a few uses for the organ which of the Hammond Organ Company didn't realise. We used to take the organ back to be repaired at the shop in London. They've been repairing my stuff for ages, but when the television thing came out, they said 'Oh no, we're not touching your stuff anymore. Now we see what's happened. You don't respect your instrument, go to someplace else and have it done.' We had that sort of rejection"

International Musician & recording world, June 1975
