“Just because you sell lots of records it doesn't mean to say you're any good.”

“I've got my own style on the guitar, sure, and I play rhythm in a certain way, and I use certain inflections. People have said that to me, and I understand it.”

“There's enough music in the world. There are enough rock stars.”

“I don't dislike rappers or hip-hop or people who like it. I went to the Def Jam tour in Manchester in the '80s when rap was inspirational. Public Enemy were awesome. But it's all about status and bling now, and it doesn't say anything to me.”

“I've never been asked to do a collaboration. I guess I just don't give off that come-and-get-me vibe. I wouldn't be adverse to doing one with Coldplay or U2 – anyone who sells 50 million albums.”

“Rock n' roll to me is all about freedom of thought and to be whatever you want to be.”
