Michael: (when asked if he'd ever write a straight autobiography?)
Probably not - I did an interview for a book in which I gave my account of certain events involving a very old friend. His memory of the events was different. Almost lost the friendship. So I'd rather keep my friends and let the bits of autobiography pop up here and there, as they occur. I don't really care if my version is the 'true' one or not. It means in some ways that you have no say in the public story about you and your friends and so on, but none of that much matters in the end. By now I am at least 50 percent fiction in terms of public perception of my life. Anything I say about it becomes almost a contradiction!
