Thanks for sharing. Thoroughly enjoyed that. It's funny, Dave was always the most reserved Blur member when they were properly active in the 90s and early 00s with regard to doing press and interviews, but he actually gives the most insight into how the band operates and is very open and candid. Damon, Graham and Alex put their PR heads on a bit more. Dave is straight down the line.

That was fascinating - thanks anothermario :)

Interesting to hear Dave say that Damon was different from most kids in young bands - he was writing songs first and learnt instruments to play them, whereas everyone else learnt an instrument first, and then started songwriting when they could play the guitar or whatever...
