Today Steve picked a personal question by Chiara.
Enjoy, Sabrina xxx
As a Spandau fan I know a lot of you as a musician and about your career with Spandau Ballet but I would like to know more of you as a man. My question is a personal one:
Are you a sensitive person? If yes, what moves you, what makes you cry?
I also would like to know if you are going to write an autobiography of yours, as Tony, Martin and Gary already did.

I guess I am a sensitive person. I get upset and angry when I see cruelty and unfairness in this world particularly towards children, animals and the defenceless.
It can be quite difficult for me to hold back the odd tear during a sad or even a feelgood film or musical piece, especially classical music.
This is ridiculous but at the end of that film Ratatouille, when the rat chef gets his own restaurant I proper welled up. So happy for that little animated rat I was. I know..pathetic isn’t it?
I do try to channel those emotions when I’m playing an instrument especially through my sax. When it all comes together on stage the mood can be explosive. And when I come off stage my head is often still in the clouds for hours after. Buzzing I am.
I have thought about writing an autobiography but I always feel that there are still more things to come in the future that I may want to include in it, stuff that hasn’t happened yet. I guess there has to be a cutoff point at some point so you never know. However, I haven’t started it yet.
