Of the message he would "send to his younger self", he said: "I'd have said 'Lay off the dope.' That's my advice now to all younger members who are into this sort of thing - oh, give it up, it ain't really worth it. I know the fascination, but it ain't worth it, pal." Of Mick Jagger's stage persona, he said: "Excuse me while I laugh. He's a bit vain, let's put it like that... We want a vain bloke up there, don't we? Meanwhile, the band can go to work. Vanity will not carry a band. But a band can carry vanity." Of Mick Jagger in general, he said: "Mick's a maniac. He can't get up in the morning without knowing immediately who he's going to call. Meanwhile, I just go 'Thank God I'm awake' and wait for three or four hours before I do anything. He is a power freak and there's nothing we can do about it. I don't want to do anything about it. Let him bugger about. It doesn't make any difference to what we do." Of music today, he said: "I don't listen to what's going on. I don't like CDs, quite honestly. They sound tinny to me." Of Led Zeppelin's reunion gig, he said: "They had one? Well, well done Jimmy and Robert. F*** off. 'Stairway To Heaven' don't make it for me, baby." Finally, of Christina Aguilera, he said: "Very nice. Very nice chick. Nice bum." The full interview, in all it's brilliance, is in the current issue of Uncut.
