 I think you've got to be very careful as a guy, in particular, that you can end up looking really, really weird. I look after myself, I eat well and stuff like that but I wouldn't call myself super vain, no.

 There's many, many times where I've watched the show back and I'm absolutely appalled. You do the show, you're not aware of what's happening in the room outside. You know, somebody just said, 'My dog Lassie died yesterday,' I'm in a bad mood and, you know, awful, and you see it in that context, it's very, very difficult to watch.

 It was a horrible, horrible, horrible time. You believe everyone is going to live forever and they don't and all the stuff you think you care about, the hit records and stuff like that, it's just meaningless. I can't admit things, that's why I can't go to funerals and stuff like that. I find it very, very difficult to deal with that kind of reality. I shut myself off totally because it affects me so badly. And then, because I had to deal with that, it was the hardest thing I ever had to do - because I'd never lost anyone in my life. I just couldn't accept it.

 I know Howard's name has been in there for a while, but I'm fairly certain that there hasn't been an approach at any time for Howard to do this show... My advice would be to find somebody who actually knows what they're talking about and has actually experienced success in the music business. I think we should have Lady Gaga. She is the most relevant pop artist in the world at the moment. I met her and she's very smart. I like her.
