“My most prized possession is my record collection. I have about 500 here in Las Vegas, and my main collection in the U.K. has over 2,000. I have enough music to never have to leave the house again. I was fortunate enough to be born before MP3s and CDs, so my collection of music started with vinyl. I remember borrowing a lot of my dad’s records, too. He had Sex Pistols, The Clash and other British punk. I also listened to records by The Beatles and Fleetwood Mac that belonged to my mum. As I got older I started listening to more metal and rock. Then, on my travels, I learned about other artists that I added to my collection.”
