Personal Quotes (2)

We'll die on stage, I suppose. What a way to go.
[on tackling his alcohol addiction] The radio's been a kick up the arse for me, and while I've been keeping sober, it's been a way to express myself in a new, focused way. I've had to concentrate but I also get the freedom. It's what I do: I deal with music. I get energy from it.
