"It's not arrogant, but it is a fact that we changed the face of rock music in Britain.
"The second part of the 1990s and the beginning of the new century were very bad.
"It was one of the worst periods in British rock music. It was all bad and boring. Now we have a huge number of very good bands.
"Our intention was to change the course of history of British rock if we could not change the world and we feel we have done well in that respect."
WTF? That's all I have to say.
