I don’t go to see bands any more because I’ve got tinnitus, so I have to avoid loud music. You get used to it, but when it’s quiet you hear a constant ringing.
At the end of the day, life’s about realising one’s human potential. I don’t know if I’ve realised mine, but I’ve certainly gone a long way towards realising some goals and some dreams.
Younger people are discovering my work, even though my reggae is not like theirs.
The more I read my poems, the more I find out about them. I still read them with the same passion I felt when I wrote them as a young man.
The modern stuff, I can take it or leave it. I like its danceability, but the DJs talk a lot of nonsense.
