Personal Quotes (1)

[on the "Our House" musical] We'd got a great writer, Tim Firth. He didn't want it to be a biographical thing about Madness, but it tells of being in borstal, as Lee was, and split families, which most of us came from. It was a hit, but we spent too much on the sodding production. And there's nothing more cheery than passing the Queen musical, and seeing it on for its 12th fucking successful year.
