The musician – 65 – on boozing – soul music and being on Live Aid twice.
I realise in hindsight just how bloody annoying I was. You know I did Live Aid not once but twice – ‘Oh and now he thinks he can act’. It was like ‘Just look at this guy’ and ‘This guy just won’t go away’. But from my point of view I was doing it because I was being asked to do things I loved by people I admired.
The best piece of advice I’ve been given? ‘Never let go of a lady’s leg’. Or ‘Cheer up’ probably. Actually, nobody seems to give me advice any more – I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because I don’t listen.
