WHAT ANNOYS YOU MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE IN THIS WORLD?
"At this particular moment, it would be that i haven't had sex in about six months. That is the absolute honest truth. Obviously, I have had to masturbate a lot to compensate. Seven times a day has become a regular amount. I've been into rehab and i've been so fucked up in the past that i can hardly get it standing for god knows how long - thats part of the reason for my abstinence. I did find out that you can snort viagra during my time in rehab though, so i've been saving that for once my vow of abstinence is over."
HOW OFFEN DO YOU BREAK THE LAW?
"I smoke in places where i shouldn't, I drink outside and I've done my fair share of illegal drugs. I don't think i break the law that often but there are so many stupid laws that change depending on where you are, who knows how manu time i have done. I don't carry the manual!"
HAVE YOU BEEN IN JAIL BEFORE?
"I've only been locked up once. I was totally out of it and for some reason i wanted to punch my neighbour in the face, so i did. When the cops came, they put me in handcuffs and threw me in jail. I was stuggling against them when they arrived, too. There were five of them all taking me on."
WERE YOU TRYING TO TAKE THEM ON LIKE A GOTH JACKIE CHAN?
"I tried to, but i was so wasted that they were all just laughing at me. I was kicking out at them and thinking I could maybe take them on but i was really pathetic. I didn't remember any of it the next day. My neighbour was american enough to demand money from me but after settling it by signing a few papers, He's not my neighbour anymore and that makes me super happy."
TELL US SOMETHING YOU'VE REALISED ABOUT YOURSELF RECENTLY?
"I've realised that i can enjoy things without being drunk. I never questioned that i could do things without being drunk, like performing or writing songs, and I knew that i would give up drink eventually so that wasnt really to much of a discovery. But i didnt think you could still have loads of fun without being shit-faced. I usually hang out in the same places when im in london and i've still been able to enjoy those places while drinking coffee instead of all of the usual cocktails."
WHAT IS THE BIGGEST LIE YOU'VE EVER TOLD?
"I've never been one for lying. Even when i was a teenager and my parents asked me if i have smoked pot, I just said 'Yeah'. But there was a lot of lying about my overall happiness and telling people that i was fine when i was on the verge of having a heart attack right before i checked into rehab. You have to lie to people sometimes, otherwise you just end up whining about your problems all the time, and there are already enough rock singrs who spend there lifes doing that; You dont need one more to add to the list. I very rarely give up and i never want to let people down so it wasnt easy to have to exsplain to everyone 'Fucking hell, I need a bead. Im falling appart. I had to drive myself ti the brink of insanity before that happened. There's a lot of pressure on all the time and you never want to be yesterday's news by taking your foot off the gas but i had to otherwise who knows what would have happened?"
ARE YOU WILLING TO SHARE THE MOST SHAMEFUL THING YOUVE EVER DONE?
"Well, you cant print most of that shit. I have shagged a random girl without a condom and that was really stupid. That was fucking stupid and the sex was really awful anyway. That was two or three years ago. I had an on-off relationship with my ex-fiancee and these things happen when your on tour. I can't even remember what she looked like. It was one of those mornings where you have your arm around someone and you wake up, look at them, and want to bite your own limb off so you can run away before she wakes up! It was stupid. Never try that at home, kids."
WHATS THE WORST THING AN EX-GIRLFRIEND HAS DONE TO YOU?
"My ex-girlfriend beat me up but that was funny in a peculiar way. It was as much fun as you can have while someone is kicking you in the head. She was a tough girl and she wasn't afraid to show it. She gave me a black eye, threw a lot of punches and kicks and, on top of that, I had a photo shoot too the next day. I have to cover my black eye with emo hair. She also once punctured my ear-drum by screaming so loudly in my ear that it bled from the inside. If the hole in my ear had been any bigger, I'd have had to go for surgery and our band would have missed their first major american tour. Violence is always pretty bad but it doesn't get any worse than being beaten up by a girl, does it?"
