As a musician usually music is your way out.
I can't be bothered anymore about giving songs titles.
As soon as it sounds fine, I'm on to the next thing, man.
The things that make me happy most are my family and working.
Being in Blur has allowed me to travel and hear the music that's being made all over the world.
It's not like my old self - I'm not in character anymore, I'm me. I'm not hiding behind that anymore.
More and more, cultural groups are cross-pollinating, and we're getting much more interesting art as a result.
I'm not really one of those people who believes that if you're a musician you can just leave that behind and start getting into politics.
And there are no stars and that you're never really sure who's doing what and what voice is what and, you know what I mean? It's supposed to be quite elusive.
No, every album is something like a snapshot. It only shows one moment in time. It shows what we feel and think right at that point in time, nothing more and nothing less.
