When it was getting really hostile in the press between [you and Courtney Love], did you ever run into her?
A couple of times. There wasn't a fistfight or anything. Courtney and I aren't strangers, we do know each other, and there's something nice about seeing people you know, even if they're saying nasty things about you when you're not around. I mean, one time we found ourselves in an elevator in a hotel, and we just started laughing.
So you weren't particularly worried about having to face her in court if the dispute had gone to trial?
No. Mostly I was worried about having to get my hair cut and wear a suit. That's why people join rock bands -- so they don't have to get haircuts and wear suits.
What did you last wear a suit to?
I'd rather not say.
Why? Was it something embarrassing?
No, no. O.K., I'll tell you. It was for a court appearance in Australia. I got arrested for doing something stupid on a scooter.
I know, it's not very rock 'n' roll.
