I was famous overnight. I went from nowhere to being really big.
I'm not much of a family man. I'm just not that into it. I love kids, I adore them, but I don't want to live my life for them.
I have a big problem with piped music. I like either silence or to listen to it properly.
I miss England. I miss the weather. I've spent moss of the last 25 years on tour. I'm ready to come home.
One of the rewards of success is freedom, the ability to do whatever you like.

Only one thing is impossible for God: To find any sense in any copyright law on the planet.
Violent men have not been known in history to die to a man. They die up to a point.
At this age, I should be leading a quiet life.
You have not found your place until all your faculties are roused, and your whole nature consents and approves of the work you are doing.
Man cannot be uplifted he must be seduced into virtue.
I think all women go through periods where we hate this about ourselves, we don't like that. It's great to get to a place where you dismiss anything you're worried about. I find flaws attractive. I find scars attractive.
