"It is hard working with people that have the ability to write their own songs because in the end that is what they want to do," Fogarino said. "I would get started with people and then it would fall apart."
That didn't happen with Franklin, who was probably too distracted in 2008 by his underrated band's reunion, as well as his brilliant solo effort Bolts of Melody, to take over the wheel of Magnetic Morning. Instead, the two UK musicians mindmelded and found a middle ground, which sounds very cool indeed.
