Q – I remember seeing you on Never Mind The Buzzcocks around 2000 or so, you seemed to have a pretty ok time of it (compared to some of the guests that have appeared). Was the experience a good one? It used to be a pretty funny show, probably not so much now.

A – I did enjoy it. I’m basically an overgrown music nerd still, granted my expertise ends in 1986… I was strangely nervous though. I pretended to storm out – really I was racing to the gents and back.
