Which celebrity would play you in a film of your life?
A young Robert Downey jnr.

What is your worst fear?
Fear itself.

If you were completely fearless what would you do?
Well....not really worry about anything because anything would be possible.  I think a certain amount of fear is a good thing...keeps you alive.

Do you have any phobias?
Not great with heights ....but I can live with that element of fear. As I get older I'm less tolerable of people I just dont want to be with.

What was the worst job you've ever had?
Working in a bottle shop/off licence in Melbourne ..... packing shelves with alcohol. 

What's your most embarrassing moment?
I've had a few of those.........I was on stage once and I was running across from left to right when the lights went down. They came back on again and I tripped over the monitor and fell flat on my face.......I think I was performing in front 5 thousand people at the time in Newquay.

Another one...I was at the tennis the other day and the BBC picked me out in the crowd and relayed it onto the live screen and televised it... luckily I wasnt doing anything out of character. It is quite daunting seeing yourself like that, not something I feel particularly comfortable with in your free time...you feel constantly on show.

What's the best piece of advice anyone's ever given you?
Make the most of your opportunities, enjoy life... keep fit and smile.

I dont really have one.

Dono...Jay
 
What's the best gig you've ever been to?
U2 at Twickenham about 2 years ago...amazing.

Cure cancer.

Live each day as if it were your last cos one day your going to be right, or Jump, you might fly.
