“I do think he’s a very talented chap, Alex Turner. It annoys me to say that because I don’t like paying compliments to anyone, but it has to be said!”

Interview on FM Today with a very sleepy Damon https://www.todayfm.com/podcasts/87637/ ... mon-Albarn

"The Rock 'n' Roll lifestyle can be quite draining (so I hear), and when an interview starts with, "I haven't been to bed", you know you're in for something a bit different." :mrgreen:
