Robert: (On drinking before going on stage) It was more to liberate me from my natural reservations. I got past it on Curiosa. For the first time in my life I went on stage straight and I found out I enjoyed it. I always knew when we were playing stadiums that I was too drunk to be good but it didn't seem to matter that much to people. It was more the event or the occasion and I got away with it more. I am keenly aware more than anyone of how old I am I've always maintained that there's something reasonably charming about seeing a 17-year old fall over after one beer too many and very far from charming seeing a 47-year old keel over after one beer too many. So that's another reason why I don't drink like I used to but I still have a fair go at it when I'm with friends. I acknowledge my age, but I'm not thrilled about getting older. Nobody ever is, but it's not as crippling as it used to be for me to understand that I'm getting older.
