“I couldn’t sing The Stones’ Paint It Black because I thought it was evil,” he admitted.

“Any coping method is a strength when you develop it, but later in your life it may not necessarily be of use to you anymore. “

Detailing some of the difficulties he is currently going through, Martin said he suffers from insomnia and uses meditation and napping to compensate for the lack of sleep.

“I don’t get much sleep at night. I meditate and also take a nap every now and then. I was encouraged on this by kickboxer coach Conor McGregor.

“After playing in Dublin the last time I went to a gym and he said the key to life is to lie down for 15 minutes and close your eyes in the afternoon. “

Martin also said he has now cut dairy products out of his diet and is trying to stay as healthy as possible.

“I don’t fuck with dairy anymore. The funny thing about trying to stay really healthy is that there’s always a voice inside of you that says, “Yeah, but …”

‘And my voice “Yeah but” is talking about [dairy] because I grew up in Devon, where you basically washed yourself in it.

“So there is always a part of me that – despite my body feeling better and singing better – I would throw it all away for four Weetabixes and a double cream. And I’m going to have to do it at some point.

“When we first went to America I wondered why we got sick all the time and wondered while having 12 strawberry milkshakes. I milked a goat the other day, but I didn’t participate, ”he joked.
