 I firmly believe that the only time you’ll ever get any peace from down below is when you’re in the ground. I’m almost 62 and I still love a good old game of ‘Where’s the Salami?’ Getting anyone to play it with me is a different matter.

 I’d mix four tablespoons of brandy with four tablespoons of port, then throw in some milk, a few egg yolks and — if I was in a festive mood — some nutmeg. The second I woke, I’d mix it up and down it. The way it works is very clever: it gets you instantly blasted again so you don’t feel a thing.

 Chocolate thickens the saliva, which isn’t good news if you’ve gotta recite Shakespeare or sing Iron Man. Having said that, you’re not supposed to drink tea either but I still do before gigs. It’s not very rock and roll, but it’s like a magic potion to me.

 The best way to wake yourself is to brew a pot of fresh coffee, then run it through the machine a second time using the old grounds. While you’re doing that, make an espresso then add that to a mug of the double-brewed coffee. In my house, we call it a red-eye. Drink one first thing Monday morning and you’ll be bright-eyed and bushy-tailed for the rest of the week.

 I tried that (retiring) and it was absolutely boring. You can’t go and say, ‘I’m retired now. That’s it!’ It won’t take long and you’re really gone for good and someone throws the last shovel of dirt on a coffin with your name on it. That’s the moment you’re really retiring – when you die.

 This is going to be my last tour. I don’t want to be on the road for this long anymore. I have to stay in one place for a while, that’s why we’re taking a few breaks in between.

 When I was 20 I thought I had the rest of my life. At 30 I was still relatively young. At 40 I was getting a bit dodgy. When you get to 60 you’re on the downward slide. I’m 61 now. In the past month so many guys I know have died. Ronnie James Dio died of cancer, a guy from Slipknot killed himself… you have to live for each minute. In my youth I’d wish my life away. I wish I could have them times back. But you can’t.
