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.

Some suggestions for you :

I don't tolerate liars. When somebody lies to me, that's really, like, just unbearable.

I was brought up and raised in Britain as a Labour man, and that quickly changed. And I find there are more working-class people in the Conservative Party than the Labour party.

I've been asked over the years to compile a list of desert-island discs. I couldn't do that. If I was trapped on a desert island, I don't think I'd want 10 songs to bring with me.

Rules are important, but they're temporary and they're always supposed to be changed.

I never wore a studded leather jacket, y'know. Ne-va!

People should never allow themselves to be dictated to by media.

Punk was never about one particular clean-cut imagery... it's about many, many individuals coming very loosely together.

I think there's something basically wrong with the general public that they do need their icons.

I've never done anything deliberately; I just speak my mind, and that is what I consistently do and will always do in any way shape or form that I can.

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.

Me, as a human, I never want to take away another human being's choices or lifestyles or anything.

Pop music I have always loved best.

If you have something to say then you want someone to pay attention or at least to have the opportunity for them to tell you to shut up and go away.

I'd rather give up my ears than my eyes, which might sound unusual for a musician.
