A show is like having a climax. It's like having an incredible, natural climax. And then suddenly it's all finished, and you don't know what to do next.

There's nobody I look up to, really.

I've always been able to get inside a song really easily, and if it's my song, I can make it seem honest.

I hated singing and getting up in front of crowds.

I see myself at 7:30 in the morning and it's not too pretty.

I'm still not good at changing nappies, but I do do it.

I suppose I miss the British cynicism and the humor.

I was very fortunate that I saved my money and I still do.

How can my son not be straight after all I've said and done for him?

I have a voice coach, but only in so much as to make my voice stronger so I can sing for five nights a week, two hours.

I have a very lively and colourful show. It's two hours of hits and the music speaks for itself.

I can definitely say the older I've got the better I've become at being a dad and a husband.

Between 21-30 women go through humungous changes. After that, they've generally achieved what they wanted, and they're more settled.

At my age you don't go into fatherhood lightly.

I've got Ferraris coming out me bum.

I deliberate over the lyrics; I really do. I'll come up with one line in a day, and then it might be a couple of days before I come up with the rhyming line. It's never been easy for me.

I'm just delighted that this woman I love can be a mum again.

I was a bit of a sleeper-inner.

I'm a gentleman.

I don't have any social life or anything.

I was getting worried I may not become a grandfather, but the Lord has blessed me.

I'm not a great lover of Madonna's voice. She's done very well with what she's got, and I'm sure my voice turns her right off, but she's not my favourite singer.

I've always looked on myself as one of a band and never sought a solo career.

Lyrics are coming to you all the time. I get inspiration in the middle of the night.

I've never done anything particularly scandalous.

Women like being kissed.

Only a fool permits the letter of the law to override the spirit in the heart. Do not let a piece of paper stand in the way of true love and headlines.

I have enough music coming out of my kids' bedrooms when I'm at home.

I have a CBE, and I accepted it with glee because it's not bestowed on you by the royal family; it's not bestowed on you by the government; you have to be nominated by the public.

I think I was always looking for that perfect woman, who obviously doesn't exist. I wanted to be married. I wanted more kids. I'm a family man, at heart.

I have lived a great life. I am very happy.

I'm very proud of my well-earned wrinkles, so show 'em.

I became famous, I think, really because of the interpretation of other people's songs, way back when, and that's what I enjoy the most. And I'm a lazy bugger.

You know I think I could give a little more back to charity.

I am a man of contradictions, I suppose.

I've been a golden boy for too long.

I've never been more in love with anyone nearly half my age than I am today. I'd get married in a minute if I weren't still married to somebody else.

I'm shrewd about money; I invest well and look after it. But it's in my nature to be generous. I look after people.

I was never a good-looking bloke. Not by a long chalk.

I never feel any aggravation from the public.

I wish I knew what I know now before.

There's no reason why I should retire.

There is this power that comes with being famous.

I'm proud to be a railway modeler.

I had this almost Dickensian look. I was quite fragile.

You shouldn't be in the music business if you're posing.

Well, there's not a day goes by when I don't get up and say thank you to somebody.

Everybody sings from their diaphragm.

Well, I've got nothing to hide. Absolutely nothing.
