A lot of vices that I've had over the years were always to make up for some sort of character deficiency, one of them being shyness.
I do consider myself British. I have very strong feelings about my British heritage.
And, so, when I picked up the guitar, suddenly, just playing a couple of notes really, really spoke to me. It was almost like I should have been doing it prior to that. You know, it was something that just felt really natural.
I always loved rock guitar. I just never put it together that that's what I'd end up doing. I had no aspirations to be a musician, but I picked up a guitar for two seconds and haven't put it down since.
