I'm not everybody's cup of tea. But sometimes criticism can be hurtful. Be respectful. I'm a good piano player, I can sing well, I write good songs. If you don't like it, fair enough. But give me a break.
If I was to say what I am, I'd be a Labour man. I like Tony Blair a lot, I think he's a good man. And in America I'd definitely be a Democrat; I'd never be a Republican.
I have no one to leave the money to. I'm a single man. I like spending my money.
I've always wanted to smash a guitar over someone's head. You just can't do that with a piano.
I love every minute of fatherhood, staying up all night, changing nappies, kids crying, I find it really funny and inspiring. It connects you to the world in a new way.
Because, I figured that, because I was a successful man, I was wealthy, I was, you know, seemingly intelligent - even that I am not intelligent enough to ask for help.
I think people should be free to engage in any sexual practices they choose; they should draw the line at goats though.
Music has healing power. It has the ability to take people out of themselves for a few hours.
People with HIV are still stigmatized. The infection rates are going up. People are dying. The political response is appalling. The sadness of it, the waste.
I think performers are all show-offs anyway, especially musicians. Unless you show off, you're not going to get noticed.
I don't have to compete in the charts. I can just be myself as a musician, a songwriter and play with the musicians that I really love.
I love the idea of the teachings of Jesus Christ and the beautiful stories about it, which I loved in Sunday school and I collected all the little stickers and put them in my book. But the reality is that organised religion doesn't seem to work. It turns people into hateful lemmings and it's not really compassionate.
The great thing about small children is they're portable, so we take them everywhere, but when it comes to 2015, Zachary's going to school, and I want to be there to drop him off and pick him up. I don't want to just be the father who reads them a bedtime story.
I've always been dead set against festivals - really suspicious and wary.
I never thought of myself as being handsome or good-looking or whatever.
I grew up at my grandmother's house, and she had a beautiful garden. I used to hate mowing the lawn and weeding, which is what you do when you're a kid. I loathe gardening, but I love gardens, and I have two beautiful gardens.
I never thought of myself as being handsome or good-looking or whatever. I always felt like an outsider.
And I'm afraid, in this day and age, trust, which I count so, you know, I love loyalty. I love trust.
Bands today have to learn their craft by putting the hard work in that we did when we were young performers.
I'm very relaxed. I have a family, I have a partner of 20 years, I have a wonderful life; nothing could be better.
