Example Says He Has Left The Rock’N’Roll Lifestyle Behind
Example recently spoke to the UK Press Association about how life has changed over the duration of his past three albums, saying that although he used to be able to gig and party like a trooper, he is now more likely to curl up and fall asleep with a glass of wine…
The singers latest track ‘Say Nothing’ is due to be released next month and is the first single from his fourth album ‘The Evolution Of Man’, which will see him take not only a change in his lifestyle, put also in his music. The album is said to be inspired by rock music.
Example, aka Elliot, said of gigging: "Gigs do wear you out because you just go mental on stage. Generally after the show I'll have a red wine or something, usually even if I want to stay out I just end up falling asleep.
"I've been doing this for like eight years so the rock 'n' roll's all out of me now. I'm kind of boring, I've got a girlfriend, I don't like staying up late, I like exercising and going to the cinema. That's all behind me now."
However, he admitted: "I like being on stage. Whilst I like making music, I don't really like the studio and recording process that much, I don't like being locked in a room.”
