next to Wormwood Scrubs | Prison.

Me dad was a factory worker,

and mum worked at | a powder puff factory.

If you were to look back at me | as a school kid,

you'd see a very shy, quiet,

Iittle church mouse kind of | character in North London.

Irish immigrant parents.

My mum taught me | to read and write

after meningitis, a serious | illness I had at seven,

when I was in a coma | for a year.

When I came out of hospital, | I was completely brain wiped...

Old memories had been erased... | Didn't remember anything at all.

Just backwards in everything.

It was like having to start | all over again.

# Pictures of Lily... #

How does it get from the man | to the egg?

I actually got put back a year | 'cause I was so stupid.

And I would never pay | any attention in class,

I was just always | daydreaming.

Steve was quite wild at 1 0, | 1 1 years old.

I think he was always getting | into trouble then.

You should make sure that you've | got the thing around the right way.

On the other hand -- | I got four fingers and a thumb.

I question everything, | I always have done.

If we were doing Shakespeare,

a teacher would give me | a hard time,

and he wouldn't tell me | what I wanted to know.

I'd ask outright questions,

and you're not supposed | to do that.

You're just supposed | to accept,

"lt's Shakespeare. | It's great, you're not."

That's not good enough | for me.

I would steal. I mean, | that's all I knew how to do.

I used to watch my parents steal | at Tescos when I was six.

And I was always | getting in trouble.

And so that's all | there was -- music.

# Flavors of the | mountain streamline... #

I was totally into music -- | Roxy Music and Bowie.

I thought that musicians fell | from the sky at that point.

I didn't think anyone | could be a musician.
