I have never been one for the over-the-top.
I was happy in Dublin because it is very cosmopolitan.
I really don't feel any strong allegiance to any country.
But I think that the most important thing was to really stop drinking.
I prefer the rather old and battered, things with character, to the brand new.
My situation should have been a lot worse. By rights I shouldn't have survived the crash.
'Cause I felt I didn't have anything else to prove as a musician... and boy was I wrong about that one.
Chasing the sensation. Whether it was drugs or sex or whatever. Those things had become my main focus in life.
I wanted to be as far away from everybody as I could be. I found it difficult to be close to anybody, not just the guys in the band.
But the irony is that because the band isn't the focus any more, it allows me the chance to enjoy being a member of Def Leppard much more.
