Some suggestions for you :

I love Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart because they're bringing irony back into American humor, which is a delicious treat. The entire Colbert persona of being extreme right-wing when he's not at all is highly amusing. He does it so well, but sometimes a little too well. My wife is convinced he's completely that way.

I hate the technological rip-offs that pass for music formats these days, and go back to vinyl to hear a good record because the sound is always so much fuller. I don't even like listening to music in the car.

I love boating - not flash, 'noisy go fast' nonsense, but the general relaxation of it. My wife and I love to get in our little Wellcraft and go as far out to sea as we can, hopefully beyond land. That is the best thing you can ever do. It clears your psyche.

Do what I want, be honest to myself and then it would do good for others, that's all, full on.

I've always said, I thought the Sex Pistols was more Music Hall than anything else - because I think that really, more truths are said in humour than any other form.

There's many, many ways to write a song. But generally, sitting down at a table and writing is not one of them.

I had an Irish Catholic education. Horrible nuns, vindictive and cruel.

You'd have to be daft as a brush to say you didn't like Pink Floyd.

I don't release records to be anything but enjoyable.

No matter what you experience in life, it incorporates political tendencies, and in so many ways.

Until I see an Arab country, a Muslim country, with a democracy, I won't understand how anyone can have a problem with how they're treated.

I love discordancy. It makes people ill at ease and wakes up a part of their brain that's normally asleep.

Britain's an island; it's always had a constant ebb and flow of immigration - it makes it a better place.

U2 - that's a band that never should have existed. There's no life experience in any of their songs.
