Home-educated, growing up with no TV or CD player, forbidden to go to the cinema ("I thought they were smoking and drinking and having orgies in there"), he really discovered guitar rock only in his mid-teens, when his father left his ministry in disgrace (there had been affairs and drinking) and his parents divorced.
