“And plus, I wanted to remind everyone he’s an old fart now. You know, the old 1.6m followers, There were people going like that: ‘What? he’s 50?’ I was like that: ‘Indeed. Yes he is.’”

The outspoken rocker added: “But you know I did mean it. He’s my brother, man, and I love him. As much as we get into all the tittle and tattle and that, you know, I wish him well man”.
