What has been the best festival you've played this summer and why?
Glastonbury - because it felt as if we had finally played a good gig there after all these years
Did you watch any of the Glastonbury coverage and which bands did you enjoy?
What do you think of Marilyn Manson's new album?
The only thing he's ever done wrong for me was his appearance on Bowling For Columbine (bit of a letdown) - he still rules
Did you watch the Martin Bashir interview with Michael Jackson? If so what did you make of it?
Did people need to visually see M.J. to realise all of it? Who cares
If you had to pick three Manics songs that best sum up the band's career what would they be?
Tolerate, Ifwhiteamerica, Motown Junk. Just shows that you can pass from youthful (?) to older reflection and not be obsolete
What's the best album you've heard so far this year?
To be honest it's still the Radio 4 album from last year
