"I just admire the band. Chris and Scott are amazing and I’m just driving the bus you know? But it is an amazing bus to drive; it’s got all the power steering and air con and stuff. And I’m just giving Chris a solid foundation to blow people’s minds basically – that’s how I look at it."
"I was absolutely shitting myself...Fuck, I want to go home!" - Before First BDO show.
"A radio in the shape of a naked lady (thanks Pop). You have to tweak her nipples to control the tuning and volume." - favourite Christmas present.
