I try to put myself into unusual and difficult situations as often as I can in order to capture the element of struggle in the music.
We used to say that he who threw the biggest tantrum won the day.
I'm a lifer, yeah... I can honestly say I'm a lifer.
So I think rather than being attracted so much now to working with my heroes, I'm sort of more attracted to working with completely unlikely strangers because it's more exciting really.
Our motto is whenever you make a mistake, do it twice.
It took me a long time, but I don't feel as anxious about stupid things anymore - or perhaps they've just been replaced by more complicated stupid things.
