#Quote
1I'm afraid I am a Busted fan, against my better judgement. Although I hasten to add that they are on the fringe of my taste.
2I get hundreds of emails a day, a lot of them from complete strangers, but also from real people I know and like. If they scare me, and there are quite a few that do, then I don't reply. Or if they say 'hey Dave, when are you playing in Sheffield?' I think 'you've ignored the button that says Live Dates and gone right to the button that says Contact Me.' That's impolite. It's like ringing up the editor of the "Radio Times" and saying 'what's on tonight at eight o'clock?'
