I don’t ever post about politics (even though I studied it at university) but the current Brexit situation is fucking madness.
.
I’m not a devout Leaver or Remainer.
.
I’m fine with staying in.
.
I’m also fine with the ‘hard Brexit’ of a clean break with no deal. Yes, there would be chaos but Britain is a strong, resilient country and we’d get through it, as we have in the past.
.
What I cannot get behind is the horrendous, half-baked surrender deal our government is trying to push through.
.
A deal where we’re still basically playing by EU rules, but no longer have a say about how they’re made.
.
A deal which we could end up permanently locked in with no way to get out.
.
Fuck that. It’s the worst of both worlds.
.
I hope we get another vote.
.
We were told that in leaving Europe we’d be able to have our cake and eat it.
.
Keep the bits we liked, lose the bits we didn’t.
.
And now the reality is clear - that was bollocks.
.
We don’t have any negotiating power and the only deal on offer is a very shit one.
.
So let’s vote again.... but this time on what’s actually available to us.

Vote in or out, just like last time, but also, in case we end up leaving, vote for one of the two deals on offer.
.
Job done.
.
Like I say, I’m ok with a hard Brexit, or staying in, but not with this pitiful deal.
.
The British politicians have fucked this up at every turn and the only way to get it right is to turn the vote back to the people. 🗳.

Am I genuinely buzzing for every single gig?
.
Of course not.
.
I’m human. And every now and again, I’m tired / sick / in a bad mood / etc.
.
But I guarantee you, if you watched me at one of these shows, you would find it impossible to tell the difference from the nights when I’m loving every moment.
.
Because my feelings don’t matter.
.
Whether there are 100 people or 10,000 my job is to play the best set possible for the crowd.
.
To make people forget about the shit in their lives.
.
To give my all, in appreciation of the fact that every person there has spent a lot of money to come.
.
Now, there’s one school of thought that says we should always be honest about our feelings.
.
If we’re not happy we should be able to tell people.
.
If we don’t want to perform, we just back out.
.
Fuck. That. .
Me? I say: you turn up and do your fucking job whether you want to or not.
.
Can you imagine a heart surgeon stopping, half way through a procedure? “Sorry, but I’ve decided this isn’t for me.”
.
Or a soldier, at the point of a critical operation, changing his mind and backing out?
.
I’m not doing anything on the level of a heart surgeon or soldier... but I approach every single set like I am.

I get asked how to be better at socials often.
.
But never how to be better at music.
.
This is back to front.
.
Social media is a reflection of music.
.
Most people are here because I’ve made good music.
.
If I make good posts too, that’s just a bonus.
.
You want followers and likes? Nail the main thing in your life and that shit will come.
.

Never stop learning.
.
It’s all about being a student of life.
.
I reckon I read about 50 books a year. Give me a book anyway over TV, YouTube, or social media.
.
Pretty much every non-fiction book I read teaches me something that I end up implementing in my own life.
.
Even if I just learn a small thing, when you read enough books, you start to experience real differences.
.
For those of you who read (and I appreciate this might be a depressingly low number), what’s your fav book, fiction or non-fiction?
.

Away from the family all week and photos like this, of Elise’s first beach sunset, are keeping my mind on family.
.
So grateful that technology makes keeping our loved ones close so much easier. I can’t even imagine leaving kids behind in the 1980s when there was on FaceTime and no smartphones, just a photo in your wallet...

Music videos are usually a fucking drag. This video for U was actually a lot of fun, because @bobruce and I avoided most of the shoot, instead leaving these two beauties to travel all through the majestic desert for a week capturing all this amazing footage.
.
My contribution involved showing up on the last day, pretended to record the song in a hotel room, getting drunk on some random whisky which was sponsoring the shoot, then fucking off back to LA.
.
(I had spent a good 18 months working on the album though, so I forgive myself).
.
Either way it’s a gorgeous video that I can still watch and enjoy now. Like most of Drive it makes me want to get in a car and fuck off into the desert for a bit.
