 The truth is there’s not too much in it and it’s stories from 20 years ago. My son is like, ‘Dad were you really in a rock band?’ And he’s high fiving me! But it’s nothing to get excited about. It was all a long time ago and it’s not going to be big with the gossip columns.

 I played a little trumpet in high school and [I was] in a marching band… Sexiest rock star in the world right there,

 We are psyched about playing The O2, we put up the first ones and they sold out in days so looks like we’ll be staying for a while. And we’ll stay until people get sick of us and we’ll go back to America. I’m happy to play live, it’s the rest of it that stinks, the travelling, but the playing is good. It is nice doing the new material, as you build up, you do TV shows and things so this is the first time we’ve really played it, it’s about remembering the right chords and stuff instead of just mugging it for a television camera. It feels really good, I can imagine what it will sound like in a big stadium.
