My favourite thing in the world, apart from my wife and kids, is writing songs. Ever since I was a kid.
It broke my heart when my first band split up. I was 25 and we'd been together since we were 15. But it had to happen. There was a point when I knew I had to move on.
Invariably, guitar players that go solo make really bad records.
The most interesting ideas definitely come at night.
Without music I would never, ever have travelled anywhere.
