I was very fortunate that I saved my money and I still do.
I suppose I miss the British cynicism and the humor.
I see myself at 7:30 in the morning and it’s not too pretty.
I love change I need it.
I have enough music coming out of my kids’ bedrooms when I’m at home.
I’ve been out with some extremely beautiful women who have had no sex appeal whatsoever. It really is a lot more than skin deep.
You can be with one of the most beautiful women in the world and still be unhappy.
I want to go out at the top but the secret is knowing when you’re at the top it’s so difficult in this business your career fluctuates all the time up and down like a pair of trousers.
Like everybody in show business you think you’re going to wake up one day and it’s all going to be taken away from you. I think we all share an insecurity in that way everybody in show business – the ones I talk to anyway.
You shouldn’t be in the music business if you’re posing.
I can definitely say the older I’ve got the better I’ve become at being a dad and a husband.
I shouldn’t have got married. My dad told me. I was 35 and I got married. He said ‘You’re too young to be married’. ‘What? I’m 35’. Said ‘You’re far too young. You haven’t lived yet’. He was right bless him thanks Dad.
My dad bought me a guitar and people would ask me to play.
What I do now is all my dad’s fault because he bought me a guitar as a boy for no apparent reason.
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.
There is this power that comes with being famous.
Half the battle is selling music not singing it. It’s the image not what you sing.
I have a very lively and colourful show. It’s two hours of hits and the music speaks for itself.
