Daily Mirror interview

Added on Friday 12 August 2005, 16:59 (BST)

The Daily Mirror newspaper (UK) has a short interview with Jay taken after the gig in Golf-Juan (France) on 21 July.  As with many other recent interviews, he talks about how his drug addiction is now firmly behind him:

"It's funny the amount of people who come out of the woodwork who knew me four or five years ago and go, 'Hey, do you want to try this?' he says. "I'm like, 'Don't you read the f***ing newspapers?' I avoid them like the plague.

"I've done a lot of sleeping on this tour. I'm probably catching up on seven years of it. I’m so pleased I got rid of that s***. I just kick myself and say, 'Why didn’t you do it earlier, you prat'."

that's so awesome that he kicked the habit...lovely and hopefully inspirational for fans that are still struggling with addiction

inspirational up to a certain point... yeah it is great!! and it is also GREATER for those that havent tried...but for those still doing it... they will think "yeah, whatever. you @@##@"
but i like him stating he is sleeping more and kiccking it HEALTHY STYLE way!!!!! he rocks

it takes alot of courage to become clean withoutrehab like most rock stars have had to do and still manage a world tour

well done to u jay for kicking the habit!!!! u got there in the end, which is great as you have done it for yaself
without rehab. it is inspirational for other people out there who are trying 2 kick the habit! you and the band are on top form! Nice One!

well done jay it s good to see you in a good vibes.

I'm glad Jay is in better spirit. I really hope that he can remain this state. It would make him perform even better, because he's living healthier.
If he would have still be doing coke, Jamiroquai would soon be over, because Jay wouldn't have a voice left.

agree with you fred fresh, is good know jay start again
if jay need support all the fans are here

im glad he kicked it. clear mind = better songs.
anticipating the 7th.
