Bellamy: "I find Celine Dion's music completely offensive."
Gavin Haynes: "He is ... someone who doesn't seem to perceive reality in the same way as the rest of humanity. A little bit celestial. A little bit neuropathological."
Gavin Haynes: "Bellamy ... denies being a political songwriter ... 'I wouldn't say I'm concerned [with] politics in that sense. Everything [I've] done - it's been more about responding to the emotions involved in the situation.'"
Gavin Haynes: "If one emotion could be said to be binding together his ... socio-political stuff with the heart of the man himself, it's that sense of the loner, of the outsider trying to find his way through the maze."
