"My first professional job was in the theater in Newcastle, where I come from, and I was in the pit playing the bass for ‘Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat.’ We were in the dark, I had a mic stand, a little light, the music in front of me. I could see the conductor and the actors clattering above me on the stage. But I sort of liked it. I liked the vibe in the theater."
