I don't dislike my peers because they're still around and remind me of what I'm doing. I never liked them anyway. I never liked U2, the things they've done over the years.

I really enjoy what I do, and who I'm with and where I am. Having said that, I'm not really a person of habit, because what I do in my job is travel around the world and play concerts to people, and occasionally do very weird things.

I don't find the technology threatening. A lot of people my age, my generation, find it difficult to immerse themselves. But I would never preclude the idea of using any technology if I thought it suited the end result.

Tags: Age, End, Technology

I hardly ever listen to any of our old stuff now. Once the songs have been recorded and put on to vinyl they become someone else's entertainment, not mine.

Tags: Good, Music, Political

I'd rather spend my time looking at the sky than listening to Whitney Houston.

Tags: Looking, Rather, Time

I've always spent more time with a smile on my face than not, but the thing is, I don't write about it.

Refusing to grow up is like refusing to accept your limitations. That's why I don't think we'll ever grow up.

Tags: Accept, Grow, Why

But everyone I know reaches a point where they throw out their arms and go beserk for a while; otherwise you never know what your limits are. I was just trying to find mine.

Tags: Everyone, Trying, While

I married somebody who likes the way I look. If I changed my hair every year, and I reinvented myself in time-honoured pop fashion, I think understandably the person I'm married to would grow slightly sick of me.

Tags: Crap, Living, Rock

Sometimes I'll get to the end of a song, open my eyes and there's all these faces peering at me. It's quite horrifying.

Tags: Fun, Job, Love

No, come to think of it, I don't think the Cure will end, but I can make up an ending if you want me to.

Tags: Cure, End, Ending
