Prison's a walk in the park compared with being sectioned, mate, it really is.

Antidepressants are very good, but it's a clinical cosh, really. Sometimes you have to be knocked out, just to stop; when you're in that state all you want to do is just sleep, and rest your body and your brain.

I am quite an early riser - I usually get up between 5.30 and 6am and take the dogs out.

When I was on a major label I felt obliged to say yes to every interview, tour and whatever else. The label is always telling you, 'This ain't going to last,' so I worked myself half to death. I learnt from that and I like to pace myself now.

Since the decline of record companies and music sales, I've always played live.

When you work as hard as you can and as much as you can to make your first album, and you don't make any money, then you change things.

The touring was crazy, it was a lot of work. But I enjoyed it.
