"All my attention was on that, and the bits of songs we did put together were rubbish-y and confused.

“I wasn't together. It was my fault. I couldn't juxtapose between a 'happy' album and all that calamity.”

But John has since come to terms with 78-year-old Nora’s condition and has viewed it as a “test” to his confidence.

He said: “I've come to grips with it since, you have to. "I related it to my meningitis as a child, and what that feeling was like. A bit of empathy cures a lot

"In a weird way ... I'm not a Christian kind of bloke, but God does like to test you doesn't he? Or is it Mother Nature? They do like to drop these bombs, just when you're at your most superciliously confident, it's like a well-earned kick up the a*se. But it gives you an opportunity to be open and honest."

He said: "On one hand, I'm very lazy but on the other I love to work. I don't think locking us up is the answer and now they're talking of shutting down everything again. I don't believe the death tolls - no one seems to be keeping proper statistics, can you believe?
