“It was £15 a week – 3,000 pesetas, I always remember. It was good for a 19-year-old guy,” he added in an interview with Red Bull Music Academy.
The DJ began working in Ibiza from the age of 21 in 1976.
He went on to say: “When you’re that age… I was fighting with my family, so I was escaping from [them].
“I didn’t want to do the job they wanted me to do… the usual teenage thing. I ended up there and I’m still there.”
