Well, I've got nothing to hide. Absolutely nothing.
I got bored of not feeling affectionate towards girls.
I never feel any aggravation from the public.
What I do now is all my dad's fault, because he bought me a guitar as a boy, for no apparent reason.
I tried therapy. This had never appealed to me. For me, it was a bit like a Chinese meal: very filling at the time, but then an hour later you're hungry again.
I did things with the microphone stand that no-one else has attempted to do.
I've tried to have a regular haircut, but it just pops back up again, so this is the way it's going to be.
I started singing in the bathroom. Nothing was coming out. It was ghastly.
You can be with one of the most beautiful women in the world and still be unhappy.
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.

I was never a good-looking bloke. Not by a long chalk.

I'll tell you what I love. Sending back bottles of wine that aren't right in restaurants in France! Whoa! I love the French, but I do find their wine snobbery something unbearable.
I don't think people expect Bruce Springsteen to come out in a pink satin jacket, but Rod Stewart, they do. And I like doing it; I don't wear it just because I think I have to. I'm a very flamboyant person.
I've got Ferraris coming out me bum.
