Tells it like he sees it...
In an interview with The Guardian, Jake Bugg gave his thoughts on Mumford and Sons, saying they look like "posh farmers with banjos". Here are highlights:
On Mumford and Sons: "They just look like posh farmers with banjos to me … but I don't have anything against anyone's background."
On if rock music has ignored the working class: "Yeah, it's a shame, because times are hard. My mum was a single mum on the dole … a couple of years ago I was trying to get enough together for a pack of fags. It's hard to rely on being a musician right now, but you have to do what it takes."
On his scariest gig: "The scariest gig I ever did, though, was at school. I got put in isolation, and the only way I could get out was if I did the school concert. You're stood up in front of people you're gonna see every day for the next two or three years. Whenever I get nervous before a show, I think: 'Well, it can't be as bad as that!'"
