Times were changing. Clothes were changing. Morals were changing. We went from romantic loves songs like I used to do to rock ‘n roll. Now that has changed to rap. So, there’s always a new generation with new music.
When I hear music that parents hate, or older musicians hate, I know that’s the new music. When I hear older people saying, ‘I hate Rap or Techno’ I rush to it.
I’m inspired by artists and musicians. There are so many wonderful and talented people in the world. I love discovering new music, new writers, or new art.
People say I seem very negative about new music – well, if somebody asks me what I think of Keane, I’ll tell ’em. I don’t like ’em. I’ll obviously take it a step too far and grossly insult the keyboard player’s mam or summat, but I’m afraid that’s just me.
I don’t see why I should give my new music to iTunes or anyone else. They won’t pay me an advance for it and then they get angry when they can’t get it.
