The 56-year-old told Q Magazine: "I feel quite proud that I was a part of it. And oddly enough I look at it thinking, 'Cor, I really like that'. And then realise that I was actually in it.

John has settled in Los Angeles Los Angeles (lôs ăn`jələs, lŏs, ăn`jəlēz'), city (1990 pop. 3,485,398), seat of Los Angeles co., S Calif.; inc. 1850.  and loves living in the California city because no one acts their age.

The musician said: "I find people in Los Angeles to be open, happy, unpretentious, fun and fun-loving with a healthy disposition, where the idea of 'act your age' is utterly impossible for anyone to consider."
