Dwight Twilley: Salvation Through Water Sports
Toby Goldstein, Creem, August 1982
DWIGHT TWILLEY, his tall, rangy frame barely contained by the walls of EMI Records' conference room, is thinking about one of the only good things that's left a mark on him in the past three years. "I've been inspired by just one record that came out and it was good for me at the time because it was toward the end of my torture, when they were releasing the chains off the rack. It was hearing the John Lennon 'Starting Over' single. It really helped me; I thought, 'Oh yeah, that's why I'm in this business, I understand, I remember, this is what it can do.'"
