Music, art in Britain amazing, says Pharrell Williams
London: `Happy` hitmaker Pharrell Williams loves to experience rainy season in Britain because he believes that it helps create "special" music.
The 41-year-old, who appeared at the Nordoff Robbins O2 Silver Clefs Awards, says rain plays its part in the country`s rich history of art, reportedly.
Speaking before accepting the Raymond Weil International Award at the ceremony at the London Hilton hotel, he said: "Music is special here. It`s not the water, it`s the vibrations from the land. It`s also to do with the climate, it`s grey, a lot of the emotions are always up and the music and art is amazing because of it.
"That sounds a little esoteric but when you think about it geographically, in places where it rains a lot, art tends to be so good. U2, (David) Bowie, Elton John, it`s all rain music."
