I can make no apologies for following my heart.
I love what I'm doing most of the time, but it's hard work. People only see your albums in the charts. They see us at award shows and after-show parties. They don't know about your doubts, the hard work that goes in.
I think it's pretty normal that there are a lot of people out there who don't like us.
I think people are too hard on the Pistols. The Pistols started the whole punk thing and never saw much money.
The only people who benefit from lawsuits are lawyers. I think we made a couple of them rich.
A happy wife is a happy life.
As much as we all love playing live, it's not normal to be on the road all the time, to have no home.
When I first began to write, I was writing on bass, because I was thinking more Public Image, more dub.
I always wrote about things that were important to me. I think our past success showed that it was also important for a lot of others.
It's pretty hard to make out what's going to be a commercial success and what's not.
We recorded our first CD, Sixteen Stone, with a small budget and never dreamed that we would enjoy such a high success. It was simply fantastic.
I love playing live, I don't like studios all that much. I need the reaction of the audience.
I love seeing the fans of the music that I make.
I don't know any musician who got to the top without hard work. Take whoever you want. They all work bloody hard, harder than you think.
Playing live, you can't survive, certainly not in England. We used to work daytime jobs and play gigs at night. It was very exhausting.
