That we should probably listen to rumours about bands splitting up, as they invariably come true.

One morning, confronted by an ankle the size of an angry pineapple, I walked myself to the doctors around the corner, taking almost an hour to cover the 500 yards. On arrival, I was rushed to hospital in an ambulance. So began the first of many, many long term stays in wards and treatment units.

I once wrote to the legendary poet asking for a few ideas on how to write work that would sell. His hand-written note (incidentally just a few weeks before his death in 1998) featured the words: "...if you haven't written the work, of course it will never happen. The stuff has just to be written."
