WHAT’S THE FIRST THING YOU DO IN THE MORNING?

Deactivate my house alarm so it doesn’t accuse me of stealing from myself. Then I go downstairs and put on the kettle for my first cup of tea. My wife and I drink it in bed and read. I usually have a second cup and more often than not a third. Then we’re both ready for the day.

WHAT WILL WE FIND IN YOUR FRIDGE?

Lots of condiments, wine, beer, eggs, cheese, vitamin water and fat-free milk.

ANY PRE-PERFORMANCE ROUTINES?

I’m not superstitious. I stress about crowds more often than not. I always think people won’t rock up. Thankfully I’m usually wrong. I insist on getting onto the stage before the gig for a walk around. This is my last-minute acclimatisation before we perform.

WHAT IS THE FIRST TRULY GREAT SONG YOU EVER HEARD?

There are two: Arthur’s Theme by Christopher Cross and Baker Street by Gerry Rafferty.

WHICH ARTIST SHOULD JUST STOP MAKING MUSIC?

There’s stuff I don’t really dig but I won’t slag anyone off.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT BEING SOUTH AFRICAN?

The fact the rest of the world finds us really intriguing. We’re almost gimmicky. They want to touch us and ask us ridiculous questions about our country.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST DREAM FOR YOUR CAREER?

To receive a Grammy Award for best song!
