When asked if he had anyone particular on his wish list, he told NME: “God, there are so many! People keep on dying this year, it’s the year from hell.”

He added: “As far as people I grew up admiring, I love bands like The Smiths. I love the Arctic Monkeys… I love Tom Waits. Leonard Cohen was huge figure in my life growing up… Joni Mitchell [too].”
