Personal Quote:

I don't think there's such a thing as composition in pop music. I think what we do in pop music is collate. It's like folk music. It makes copyright a bit interesting and difficult. I'm a good collator. See more »

Trivia:

In January 1987 it was announced that he would be in a film based on the novel 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps' and play Billy, a successful guitarist whose future is ruined after a blood thirsty trail for revenge. See more »
